Dear Allie...

"Dear Allie, I pray each day that you will have a long lifetime of smiles and wonderful days ahead. I love you! Love, Mommy" (Inscription in the seam allowances of this pillow.)

Ta-da! (lol) I finished this pillow about a week ago. It's been such crazy weather since... first overcast and dreary, and now hot hot hot! Today I finally stepped outside of my relatively cooler house to take some pics. 

The dresden plates here were my practice block for one of the months of the {sew} Beautiful Bee - I'd never sewn dresdens before and they're a lot of fun! I did a bit of embroidery in the middle - inspired by this pillow.

The little label was sent to me by Michelle of Delightful Disarray with my Pillow Talk Swap package. It's an iron on (handmade?) and I stitched it inside the back flap. Totally cute and professional looking!

And lastly, among those fun hand stitches, here's a tiny little hedgehog tag that I added... just too cute. There's a little red heart on the back of it... :)
