Heather and The Beating Hearth Goes Feral

A trip to the big city was supposed to prove a wild ride, but it couldn't hold a candle to my trip to the mailbox.  My good friend Heather from The Beating Hearth decided to get all artsy and make an AMAZING, ARTIFIC pillow!   This girl is one talented Sewing Queen!! 
 The Feral Turtle, (that's me), has a slight obsession for these crazy beaded spiders that first popped up on her blog.  She put the two together and created the most amazing pillow that will ever grace my furniture...

On top of all this, she sent a beautiful hand written card with such wonderful words, that it truly touched my heart.

  And if this just wasn't enough, she packed up a box of Girl Guide cookies that are gone???? 
  I'm sure the girl on the box ate them all...... She just looks guilty.

 I know the post office lady was gleaming with envy as I carted my huge, girly pink box out of the post office....or perhaps it was my goofy smile that she it was definitely the box!

I really have no words for her kindness, but I can say that if you ever need a personalized pillow, she is your Sewing Queen.  I heard through the grapevine that she may be opening an Etsy shop and selling her gorgeous creations. 
  I think she will be selling her own original patterns too, which you can get a sneak peek of, Here and  Here!

I can't imagine all the work she put into my special pillow, but I can say it will be greatly treasured!
Thank you Heather!
  You are a very thoughtful friend!

P.S.  Watch my sidebar for a link to her Etsy shop!



  1. WOW!!!!! You SCORED! That turtle/spider pillow is the cutest thing I've ever seen! I love Heather, I love your goodies, and well, I guess I love you too. =D


  2. She did a FABULOUS job on the pillow! Just amazing! I am sure it is something you are going to treasure for a very long time, and even cooler that you will think of your blogging friend every time you see it! I can't wait to check out the Etsy shop!

  3. It's incredible and so you! I guess the Etsy project is going to put our bird poop project on a hiatus... I can't wait for that Etsy shop to open!

  4. I am blushing over here! You are too sweet and I am sure the lady at the post office was envying your grin as much as the box. The Etsy store will happen someday...I think. :) Thanks again for the love!! And tell Magali not to worry, we'll sell the poop paint on my someday Etsy page.

  5. How Coooooooollll!! Heather is so talented with those pillows, stitches and quilts, she amazes me all the time. That was so sweet of her to send you a pink girlie box full of goodies. I think I did see her mention the Etsy thing, I'm so excited for her. How dare that girl scout go and eat all your cookies...unless it was the spider...or the deer, lol. Have a great weekend, Karen!

  6. That is the cutest pillow and heather is the sweetest friend! I can't wait to see what else she has in store in her Etsy shop.

  7. Oh awesome! What a beautiful pillow and gift.
