I created this pillow for myself. I have had some of this material for years. I purchased the Hibiscus square and the teal material, while on a trip to Hawaii, with my family. This took place back in the late 1980's. So you see now that I do pillows for others, I decided I needed to finish a long awaited project for myself. It brings back many pleasant memories.
Everything I do inspires my work, from my long country walks and the flowers I plant in my gardens, to my travels to other places, particularly trips to Boston, MA and Austin, TX to visit my daughters. I am constantly on the look-out for new ideas, whether inspired by the Vermont countryside or the city, close to home or far away, tasteful and traditional or whimsical and adventurous.
I live in Perkinsville with my husband Andy. We have two daughters, Shanna and
Christina. All three of them have supported me with La Petite Fleur, making it a
true family business!
