Wowsa!! I won!!

I've been checking the Unity blog throughout the day, but didn't back up to the main page to get the most recent post until now. I won!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!! Check out the other six amazing projects. Here's the letter I wrote and the pictures I took of my pillow ornaments before sending them to my boyfriend BRO:

My dearest Bro,
I’m sending you this gift as we come to the end of our exciting journey. What a process. I’ve loved every minute of it and wanted to reflect on each of our dates. I know six other special, talented ladies are also vying for your attention. Will this gift be enough? I thought now that we know each other better, it’s time for "pillow talk." I also hope you like the satin sheets!
Won’t these look fabulous on our holiday tree year after year? I took sentiments from various KOTM sets, stamped in Momento black tuxedo ink with some copic highlights and mixed fabrics in the colours and textures you love to create seven unique pillow ornaments—as unique as you and each of the female finalists. You’ll recognize something from each of the seven challenges in each of the pillow ornaments. I really wanted to send you a homemade twig tree using dogwood from my garden but I don’t think customs would let my project through. So I took pictures of what I had in mind and am sending them along too. The satin bag can either be a tree skirt or just a great memory of our final date!!

Affectionately yours,
Nancy xoxo


I'm guessing Bro or someone at Unity loves chocolate or else my package was opened at customs because there was a chocolate bar in the pocket of this pillow (you know, like the chocolate on the pillows of fine hotels) and it's gone!!


The card was a little experiment in handstitching after doodling Bro's name with a copic pen on the fabric:



and I packaged the project in a large pillow with plaid fabric:


Hope you feel inspired! Please leave me a little sign that you were here.
