Better Late Than Never

About 4 years ago, I made a large, flower shaped floor pillow for my niece, Emma.  That same summer, I adapted the pattern to make a huge turtle pillow for my nephew.  After the turtle, I immediately bought fabric to make Anna Kate a flower pillow.  I cut out the pieces and stored them in a plastic bag until I was ready to sew.  Four years ago. 

In February, I decided I was tired of moving that bag full of pieces around.  So, I decided I'd make her the pillow for her birthday. 

I had forgotten what  a PAIN this pillow is to sew! 

Regardless, she loves it.  It was worth the aggravation to see her enjoy it.  Just don't tell her it took me 4 years; I'm not sure she'd say it was worth the wait.
