This pillow is a beautiful gift from my friends Lawrence & John. Lawrence received this gorgeous Turkish hand-crocheted trim from one of his students and amazed me by hand-sewing it to the incredible spinning pillow he created for me. The thread is so fine, probably size 70 or 80 with a size 14 steel crochet hook. Each rose is 3 layers and then there are leaves beneath the roses. I can't even imagine how much work a few of these roses and leaves would be let alone a whole strand of them. I also could not imagine hand-stitching this lovely edging to a large pillow. Thank you to Lawrence and John for this wonderful gift! I will think of you each time I use my new pillow to support me as I spin.
