    Boat pillow I made for a friend

    Hello everyone!
    Our boating friend asked me to make him a special pillow. He drew a picture of what he wanted...the front view of a paddle wheeler boat, complete with the colors he wanted. I did this in Tapestry Crochet. I just finished it last weekend on our boat. I will give it to him this coming weekend and hope he likes it. If he wants anything added to it, such as a gold ring around the stacks near the top, I can do that on the front with a needle and thread. Here is his drawing and photos of the pillow. I made a simple chain from the two blue yarns and attached it as a border.
    ~~ Hugs, Jo

    Oh, thank you, Suewin for your nice compliment! I tried to make it look like what he wanted. I'm anxious to give it to him this weekend. We will be anchoring with him and his wife this Saturday.

    Hi Jo,
    Your Welcome. I have done a cross, not knowing it was tapestry crochet.

    If you still have it, I'd like to see a photo of it.
