Pillow Talk Swap 3 {Sent and Received}!

Another Pillow Talk Swap, another AMAZING pillow!! I received this today from Rachel...

PTS3 {Received}!!
What a lovely sunflower! I don't know if you know this about me, but I *LOVE* sunflowers :)

PTS3 {Received}!
She sent along some goodies too- some vintage sheet pieces and a lovely hand crocheted dishcloth!

Now I have a lovely flower garden (without any bees!) right on my couch!

And on the sent side of things...

PTS3 Done!
I sent this pillow to Joan of Wishes, True and Kind! She did a lovely blog post about it, which you can read here!

I think she likes it :)

I can't wait for round 4 to start... this is one of the best swaps in the world :)


  1. Are you kidding? I love it! So does Molly :) I have to admit that I learned a few things from it, too. Like -- interfacing is a nice touch and will probably add to the sturdiness and life of the pillow and the quilting really is nice. I didn't quilt the one I sent off or use interfacing, and it seems a little flimsy compared to the lovely you pillow made me. This was my first pillow talk swap and I wondered if I would do it again because I put so much pressure on myself. But now that my pillow is done and headed across the country, I can't wait to do another swap. So much fun!
    I love your pillow flower garden :)


  2. I love your pillows!! What a great swap!

  3. Now how would any one know that you loved sunflowers with all the ones on your blog site???/
    Love all the pillows--the ones you got and the one you sent---very pretty--and I will take one of each!!!!!
    Hugs, Di

  4. These make me so jealous, they are amazing! I will have to try pillows one day and practice to be worthy enough of joining one of these some day :)

  5. That red and aqua pillow is fabulous! I read Joan's blog on a regular basis--lucky person to receive that pillow.
    Did you by any chance participate in the red and aqua disappearing 9-patch last year?

  6. both pillows are just beautiful! I am such a pillow fan anyway, they just brighten and cozify a room....I just made up that word, cozify....but it works....

  7. all of those pillow are gorgeous! I especially love the last one.
