Mom decided that she would like the embroidery turned into a pillow for her living room. She requested a flat edging with the coordinating material, rather than a ruffle. I completely agreed that a ruffled edging wouldn't look right. The pillow is on my couch here. It should look great on hers which is navy with a small pattern in a golden color.
Thanks for the great idea to embroider Penelope's footprint on the back. I would have loved to but wasn't convinced that I could do a good job so I left well enough alone!
