A Lancashire pin pillow.
I wish today's weather was as sunny as it looks in the old Lancashire advert that I've used for this pin pillow, it's dull and chilly instead! Where's the summer gone!
Anyway, back to this pin pillow. The picture is edged in pekingese stitch and sewn onto a lovely blue-flowered cotton. Along the right there's a strip of vintage fabric , with prairie points, made from the same fabric, tucked into it. I have backed the pillow in the vintage fabric too.
After the pillow was stuffed, I have tied an old brass button, with an anchor on it, too the pillow. The decoration on this pillow is fairly minimal, but I didn't think it needed anymore with that fabulous vintage advert.
This pillow is now at the Seagrass Gallery in Hoylake if you'd like to buy it.
