Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Pillow Talk -- Again!

I love needlepoint pillows and have done many of them which now reside on chair seats in Linderhof's living room.

I must admit that I cannot resist a piece of needlepoint at a flea market or estate sale if I think it will fit comfortably on a chair at Linderhof.

Such is this piece!
Great stitching and great colors -- with the touch of pink it fits perfectly into the Master Bedroom and the other pink pillows that reside there. It goes well on this little chair methinks.

It's Pink Saturday so please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Hard to believe someone would give up this beautiful pillow (heirloom, I'd think) to a flea market. It seems, however, to have found the perfect home at Linderhof!

Best,
Bonnie

Gorgeous pillow. I love needlepoint also and use to do a lot of it. Your pillow is done in such pretty colors and the pattern is lovely. Hugs, Marty

Wow! Did you ever find a gem. I love needlepoint pillows but can't afford them! As far as I'm concerned, this is equivalent to striking gold! Congratulations, Martha, great hunting!

Your needlepoint pillow is beautiful. I always have a needlepoint project going. Right now I am working on a pillow for DD for Christmas. I find it to be very relaxing. I think needlepoint pillows add so much to a home and yours is just gorgeous. Your gain.

Martah this is an amazing work of art. Also you must read my interview with The Empress of the Eye!! Her collection is stunning!

She is giving a pillow from fabric embroidered by the Otomi Indian tribe.
