Troy had once upon a time said he'd like this pillow for his room, but I think he was just being polite. It is pretty, but not his style. Anyway, my step-mother was thrilled. I gave her the unfinished needlepoint so she could choose what color she wanted for the back and trim. You can't see the back here, but she chose navy suede cloth. The cording color choice really turned out well. The picture below shows the pillow on the sofa in my step-mom's home office. The reds are really nice together. This is a discontinued Ehrman Tapestry needlepoint called Turkish Stripe. The date on the canvas is 1989 (the year Zack was born), but I didn't buy it until at least 1997 (the year Troy was born). I used the finishing service for the U.S. as recommended on the UK website (Cindy Hills). She does a fabulous job. Looking up her email got me poking around the Ehrman site. Now I want to start another one. I'll post my top three for consideration.

That pillow is amazing. Looks great on the couch. I like that home office, too. Pretty cool to have a fireplace in the office!

Can't wait to see what you are considering next.
