Last Sunday eve, I was happily editing pictures of a gorgeous lilac needlepoint (now the center of a pillow) and listing it and I realized it was #995. It just sneaked right up on me. 995 pillows and tuffets. 995 since I actually decided to keep count (my website helps me with the counting) .... but I know there were more , local sales, give-a ways, a few special requests, and gifts for my sister and brother (yuppers, he got one.) The Divine-But-Long-Suffering Mr. C'est Chouette estimates the number at over 1250!!!
Suddenly I knew the push was on, I was going to make it to 1000 this week or bust!
1000 pillows~ you know what? That is over 1200+ pounds of stuffing, over 400 yards of gorgeous silk, about 500 yards of plush brush fringe, 1500 yards of twisted mini-cord, and over 900 boxes for shipping, and I cannot even guess the number of spools of thread!
And at 1000 pillows and tuffets, I do not plan to stop. In fact I think I have the 1007th on the work table (pillow parts laying around.) On to 2000!
Thank you to all my customers and friends for the wonderful journey. There are no words to express my appreciation.
