Every now and then one receives a really special birthday present, albeit a teeny bit late.
This beautiful pillow was HAND-EMBROIDERED for me (except the bands on the top and bottom) by my soon-to-be 89 year-old Irish former colleague and India travel buddy, who's lived in 'Yugoslavia' since 1958. This woman is amazing in many, many respects, and this pillow is only a small proof.
Many thanks, Gillian. I love it.
