Words Of The Day

pillow covers

Inspiration struck recently when I saw similar pillows in a magazine. I thought, "I can do that!" So, I did. I saw the "love" style pillow in the magazine. As I was creating the embroidery file, I wondered what other words would work alone on a pillow, and "nest" came to mind.

By a happy accident, as I laid out the finished pillow covers to iron, I read, "LOVE nest." That works. Someone can order a set of words to create a special message for the living room or bedroom.

You can find the "LOVE" and the "nest" in my calicodaisy etsy shop. Check out the pretty little dragonfly accents floating around the words.


At the same time I was working on the words above, I designed a number series - you've seen them around, I'm sure: No. 1, No. 2, etc. I just haven't decided yet what fabric or color to use. Generally, I see them in an off-white with black embroidery, but maybe a series of colored fabrics and black or white embroidery would look nice, too. Any suggestions?
