Amber's B-Day Today ~~ Mitten Pillows

Today my oldest daughter turns 26 years old. Happy Birthday Amber ~ we hope you are having a great day down there in cold college town. I sure have happy memories of your day of birth ~~ I was in heaven being a mother.
A few years ago I embroidered 2 sets of three mittens on muslin. Those mittens have been in my unfinished projects box waiting to be "pillowed". Recently a couple of friends helped me choose fabric for these and I set right to work. I was able to get these two pillows made and displayed. I put them together in differing ways and sizes. Why two pillows you ask? Perhaps one for each daughter, hoping they like them and that they both don't like the same one. When I asked each dd(separately) which one she fancied most ~~you guessed it ~~ they both like the same pillow most. I'll show both of them. You can see which one you prefer!
Take Care.

Love the background of your blog. Now how did you get a head of me and do that? I was going to try to figure out some fun things for you to do. Thanks for checking out my very unfinished blog, I'll let you know when it is a little more presentable.
