Power of a Pillow

 Yes, I believe there is power in a well placed pillow!  It's amazing.  Remember the slipcover I made for a chair in G's room.  It was hard and my first wing back slipcover.  There were lots of areas that weren't so tight.  I saw the above picture somewhere and got excited that I could see G's chair!  And I had been wanting to put a pillow on it!  And there was my inspiration!
 I chose a rectangle shape because it hides some of the issues my slipcover has.  It fits perfectly.
 I embroidered a "g" on the front and sewed some piping around the edges - perfect!
 This chair gets used all the time.  The two of us fit perfectly on this chair.  (Guess who wants chairs of their own now?  That would be my two girls.)

That pillow - it made this chair even more perfect. Have you counted all the times I've used the word perfect?  Am I geek for getting excited about pillows?

I love pillows. But my husband is annoyed by "extra" (in his eyes') pillows. Have you seen Along Came Polly, then scene when Ben Stiller destroys the pillows. He loves that and wishes to reenact it at our house. The g. is perfect!

A blanket thrown over the back would be cute, too. Good job my dear.
