Speaking of Toile...

Isn't this pillow gorgeous that Bettie made for me to give my Daughter-in-Law Ashley for her birthday? Ashley has four furbabies and I knew Ashley would love something depicting her "babies"...Bettie made a similiar, cute pillow for our cousin Patty (are you reading this Patty?) and then she made one for my Mom...and Ashley raved about them during this pillow was a joint effort with Bettie doing the main sewing and I helped her print out the photos on fabric...I think the combination of the toille and black/white prints is stunning! don't you agree?


  1. Good morning Gayle,
    What a beautiful pillow! I ♥ everything about it!

    Have a great weekend (almost Grandma to be.)
    Hugs ~~

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog. I am now a follower of yours. I love the toile pillow with the babies!

  3. Very cute!!!!!!!!!!!
    Ashley is a lucky girl.

  4. The pillow is beautiful! The black-and-white photos really do look great with the toile pattern.

    Thank you, Gayle, for stopping by and leaving the kind comment. I appreciate it very much.

    What a great idea for three friends to share one blog! It was clever of you to share the responsibility. I like the name as well. I'll be looking forward to visiting again.


  5. Love the pillow - I am sure Ashley loves it as well. I really think you could sell these, people would pay a fortune for them!

  6. Gayle, this is truly gorgeous!!!! I am so impressed and love everything about it.

  9. Hey Gayle I also did stain glass many years know all about it and much harder than doing a quilt to me...I ruined many pieces of glass trying to get each piece to fit the other...Again thanks for the visit...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria
