It's a pin pillow with floss rings on 2 ends, and this is a Calico Cat design called Hearts & flowers. It is stitched with Victoria Clayton silks!! Isn't it just lovely? The fabric itself actually has a pink hue to it, but it doesn't show through very well on the photos....

I also got the Heart and Hand framed last Friday~ I went to Michaels and sat on the floor with several frames in front of me for hours and this is my final decision!! I think it fits the design quite well~

  1. What a lovely PIF! I like the concept of pillow and floss rings in one! Very nice framing on your project has such a sweet sentiment.

  2. Hi Theresa, The minute you said Calico Cat I knew it just had to come from the UK because I know the designer of Calico Cat - yet another Carol, quite well. Aren't PIF's just the best. Enjoy your present especially the chocolate although personally speaking I like Hershey's better than anything but then again I am a displaced Yank. Love Patti xxx
