Embroidered throw pillow covers

Around about 5 years of marriage, all your lovely wedding gifts start to deteriorate. And since (as an astute reader might have noticed) we just celebrated our 6th anniversary, that means I only waited a year to cover my dilapidated living room throw pillows with new covers.
I sewed them out of tea-dyed linen and free-hand embroidered them in brick red.

I actually have a third pillow to finish, but I can't think of which building or tower to embroider. Suggestions?

  6. I like you Gracie. You're full of so many different sides...an interesting, intelligent, creative, talented person. ;) And you'd go to bookstores and libraries with me if we ever were to hang out in real life. :) Love your pillows!
