Elliot's pillow

On Thursday, after I spent the morning commenting on drafts of my students' final projects, Elliot and I spent the afternoon sewing a pillow featuring some of his embroidery. We found the design on one of the vintage embroidery photo pools on Flickr (I think). He did all of the ironing and a good deal of the sewing; for my part, it was my first time making piping, and I think it came out very well. (This tutorial was extremely helpful.) Here it is:

He's been cozy with his pillow since he finished it. I think he's proud of his work--as he should be.
