A pillow for ME!

My friend Steph made me this pillow for my birthday/Christmas. She used some of the selvedges that I'd been giving her, and some from her own stash.
 I love the hand embroidery. ;)
The border and back are an AMH print. And in the borders, she fmq-ed "you should just google it" and "so I just need to vent for a minute". Those are 2 common phrases we seem to use when talking to each other. (I do most of the googling, b/c I'm not at all in touch with pop culture. I just figured out who Justin Beiber is!)
I love the pillow and right now it's in my sewing room. She made it big (25" wide x 20" high) so that it could be used as a floor pillow, since I only have 1 chair in my sewing room. And when we move, it will look great on the futon that I'm hoping to add to my sewing room!

Thanks, Steph!

Just to counteract whatever pearl-clutching may occur, I want to go on record as saying I really dig the hand embroidered part!

What a wonderfully personal gift!

OMG, Your post made me laugh right out loud! You two are not alone in the "you should just google it", I think that is on all of our lips are we all rely on it for information. With DH and I, he asks me things and I always reply, "I dunno, I'll just google it and find out".
I'm from Canada and just heard my first Beiber song the other week and its because it was preformed on Glee!
Thanks for the laugh!
Cheers,
Carolyn
