Chinese proverb pillow

Stitched on 32ct 'Ray of Light' Belfast linen
with DMC threads.

I made this little hanging pillow as a gift for one of my daughters friends, who turned 18 yesterday. I just thought it was cute, the saying on it, is a Chinese Proverb and says 'Keep your face to the sunshine, and you will never see shadows'. I just love that saying. I backed the pillow with the fabric in the background, but I think it's a little too dark to see.

What a pretty gift for an 18th & the saying is a lovely one. Enjoyed my catch up - so many gorgeous exchange pieces sent & received & I just love those Halloween pieces. :0)
