A Lotta Pillows

I think I've officially reached the point where I need to stop needlepointing pillows. This creates a bit of a "Problem," as I have also reached the point where I need to stop needlepointing pictures for the walls. In fact, my ANG SOTM is almost finished--I just have this month's finishing work to do--& I think I am stalling a little, as I have no idea where I'm going to put it. There's nothing else oriental in my house.....leaving me at a bit of a loss as to what to do with this gorgeous kimono. I do remember saying this to myself as I dithered over whether or not to do the mystery SOTM. But it is so beautiful....

Oh, wait a minute! I purchased a few miniature kimonos by Lee a few months ago, when we all thought they were going out of business. So maybe I'll make an "Eastern" area in my house---somewhere.

So. Back to the pillows. My Tuscan pillow came back (surprise!) from the finisher. I added it to my bedroom pillows. I took some photos of some of my bedroom pillows for you. Can you see the crystals on the fringe of the Tuscan pillow? Cara especially finds these attractive. I am not amused by her attraction.
We had a snowstorm here last night, about a foot. Last night I did all the prep work for a terrific slow cooker beef stew--plugged it in a little while ago. My daughter has her two friends from college here, & they're having a mini-reunion. There are quite a few wine bottles in the recycling bin. And I think there were margaritas at some point last night.
I have to get to wrapping....Christmas is almost here! Wrapping will then tell me what I forgot...oh, boy!

I love the finishing of your pillows, especially the 2 in one.
