What a Wonderful Surprise!

Isn't this the cutest pillow! My friend Donna, who is a very talented seamstress, stitcher, and painter, made this as a surprise for me! I just love the verse, and she said she thought of my grandchildren when she stitched it.

My father rescued this old chair that was headed for the landfill. He took it all apart, and refinished it for me. He even did the caning on the seat. It is a real treasure to me and is referred to as "The Special Chair" in my home. Since my fathers passing it has become even more precious, and I think Donna's pillow looks just perfect on it. Thanks so much Donna!
