I can do anything
Except center a design on a pre-made pillow.
I saw this pillow kit and fell in love with it! Not sure if it was the colors or the quote, maybe both! reminds me of the fabric I have for a quilt (that I will make someday!) Anywho - it is a Pine Mountain kit. Comes with the pre-made pillow, floss and even a needle. (doesn't come w/ the pillow form - I just made my own) It was a pretty quick stitch. A little brighter than the bedding in our room but I've got it on our bed for the moment.
For the record - it actually is centered if you use the outside dimensions of the pattern - it just doesn't look centered (to me) because of the vertical lines on the sides. I'm mad at myself because I thought it didn't seem right when I started, but I didn't listen to myself and kept right on stitching. Now that I am looking at the picture on the kit - it looks just like mine and I didn't notice it there either until now! Oh well - it is just for me so even though it bothers me, I'm not fixing it. But - if you decide to stitch this one, you might want to think about moving the design two or three stitches to the left. Personal preference I suppose.
Back to work - I'm emptying my little room so we can paint! How did I get so much stuff?
