Today is....

When I ran across this design by "By the Bay Needleart", I knew it was one that I would have to make...I love how simply it is worded regarding how precious life is....Donna Bayliss designed this cute piece in honor of breast cancer awareness..... You can check it out here....





I added some seed beads in the center of my flower just to give it a little pop...
And, on the back of the pillow, I put a little pocket to hold scissors or a sweet message....

I will be posting a little more once I return from the PALS Fall Fling on Sunday...... I plan on visiting with old stitching friends, making new stitching friends and getting plenty of quality stitch time in~~~ Woo-hoo!!!
