Something blue... to remember!!!

Good day my lovely blog friends :)

These days a close family of ours is visiting (after many years) Greece.  I'm so excited cause today I get to see them :)!!! Yesterday afternoon, while talking on the phone with them... it suddenly hit me!! I haven't had any gift for them to bring back to their country.... and that is something unacceptable !!! I was thinking that they'll probably be buying some souvenirs... but I wanted to take with them... the most memorable thing of Greece.... and that's (at least for me) the color blue.... 

I asked them if they'd have enough space in their luggage for a small pillow and the reply was YES!!! You can imagine my feelings right? Too excited!!! In an instant I was off to my sewing room, searching in my fabric stash for shades and prints of blue, denim for the back..... after three hours of cutting, fusing, and sewing, it was done!! The perfect pillow to remind them of their best vacation in Greece!!! Something blue....








So sorry once again for the crappy pictures... but they were taken too late!!!!

I sure hope that they'll love it:)  I can't wait to see their face expression when they see this cutie... 

Well I have to get ready for work :) I'm wishing you all a great day!!!!

  8. That is a cutie! I love the little boat!
    You do such nice applique work! I need to get my butt in gear and start sewing something other than bags. They're very satisfying and fun, but after a while how interesting are they to read about, right?

  15. Eleni, we LOVE LOVE LOVE your pillow!! It's the perfect gift to take home with us and it will take pride of place on the sofa and remind us of you and Greece and family every single day. Amy says she loves it because it was "made with love" and the girls are fighting every night about who gets to sleep with it. A gorgeous gift! Mwah xxxx!! Can't wait to go shopping for some cool Asian fabrics for you.
