    Simply beautiful Ralf! I always love white on white when there’s contrast like your plain cotton against the sheen of the expertly embroidered thread. The delicate lace is the perfect finishing detail on these gorgeous works of art!

    Ralf, I love these pillows! I can see the love for that new janome and the endless possibilities for creativity. What a great machine in the hands of a true master of what I call fiber art. So now you have a new reference…Fiber Artist. I too agree….welch’ wunderbare Liebeserklärung!!! (funny, I had to read that last word about 10 times to get the meaning, and then oh, I get it..lol)

      dear gabriele! thank you very much for my new title “fiber artist”…. how lovely! and i agree: “liebeserklärung” is a very nice and poetic german word. (maybe i have to do once a pillow, using this word in a sentence…..stay tuned :-)

    Oh, Ralf! You really are the sweetest guy! Beside that your work is beautiful as usual, the meaning behind it is just heart warming. You husband is a lucky guy my dear! I like to start my mornings with love:))) Thanks for sharing! BTW, Is your Janome an embroidery machine! I just got a new one, the 6600 and I don’t think mine does these kind of work. Really beautiful design.
