The shabby cat's MEOW

I found this wonderful piece of hand counted cross stitch at a tag sale quite some time ago and have finally found the most wonderful fabrics to design a beautiful pillow for the shabby cottage style!
I used vintage laces to surround the cross stitch as well as gorgeous long soft white lace end ruffles. This pillow would be wonderful as a porch pillow too. I can just picture it on a white wicker settee!

Mention that you saw this pillow in the Etsy Cottage Blog and get 25% off!

I used to cross stitch too back in the old days :) A lot of work went into that, and I can see you put a lot of work into your beautiful pillow Debbi.
