When Pat read that my pillow True Love was sold, she asked if I could make something similar for her. She and her husband are having their 35th Wedding Anniversary in September and she thought a Rocco Romance Pillow would be the perfect gift. So I looked through my fabric and found I had another piece with one of those romantic couples and told Pat I’d have the pillow to her for in time for her anniversary.
So I have a deadline, I’m going with Jon next Tuesday to Palo Alto, California where he’s giving a talk at the Humane Society (I am so looking forward to getting away, even if it’s just for four days!), so I have to have the pillow in the mail by Monday. After meeting with Mandy and Athena and Kim, this morning at the Round House Cafe, I got to work on the pillow.
This is what I have so far. But it’s 5:30 and I’m not seeing straight anymore, so I’ll come back to it tomorrow and see what I think about it then, make the necessary changes or adjustments and start sewing. Looking at it now, I’m thinking it’s kinda strange, but in my heart I know it’s no stranger than the rest of my applique pillows. But then, when it comes to these pillows, the stranger the better.
