Pin Pillow for Rowyn

I heard from Rowyn that she received her Pin Pillow for the exchange organised recently by Becky.  I saw that Rowyn had stitched a few LHN designs, so thought this one might suit her.  It is Small House Sampler from the Something Old, Something New pattern.  I changed the original ABC under the house to Rowyn's initials. I think the design was originally a freebie, but has been re-released in this collection of patterns.  Most of the other Pin Pillows I have seen in this exchange have some cute little details, buttons, ribbons or trims.  Unfortunately, mine is very much a plain finish, with a bit of practice, one day I will be brave enough to add a bit more bling.This is the first exchange I have participated in, and I have really enjoyed the experience. Rowyn has a wonderful blog, which I can now follow officially, instead of stalking her while I tried to keep my stitching secret from her. lol. So pop on over and check it out.

Thanks for stopping by, will be back again soon...............
