*Update* Now that my PIFs have their gifts I can stop being so cryptic. I received a very sweet response from my PIF Kyle, on his blog:
Just posting to say thanks for the lovely card, "you know who." I'm so glad you enjoyed your pillow and that it reminds you of family. It was made from recycled neckties on my 1935 Singer Featherweight (221) sewing machine and there isn't another pillow like it in the whole wide world :)
Be sure to tell your guests about it as they enjoy all the rich treasures sure to be found in your guest room ;-) Here's the pic I took after finishing it.
