I usually remove the pillow for more comfortable sitting but always put it back - afterall it is my Johnny Appleseed pillow.
Here is another pic of some of the samplers I stitched years ago. Sorry Marsha - none are SL samplers.
I have to mention that the basket on the side of the chair in the first picture hold mostly stitching kits - SL's- but what is so special about that basket is that it is my Grandmothers and she use to bring it to our house on Friday or Saturday nights filled with goodies to cook and eat. Home made spaghetti, caviar, raw beef, small rye breads, onions, you name it she brought it to our home - wonderful memories -I can see them coming down the block as I type this and us kids jumping up and down so excited. Oh to be that young again.
Have a great stitching week everybody. I can't want to get Marsha's Christmas Sampler.
