Hi, yes it is a family thing for us. My dad had 19 brothers and sisters (11 girls and 9 boys in his family) and can you believe they all have nicknames??? Of course my dad is 91 so there are only 4 of his siblings left but they were quite the bunch.
Thanks so much for the compliment. I didn't back it. I've heard of it being done, but I am not sure how. I would imagine you have to whip stitch all the way around and probably make a few tacking stitches about ever;y 10 yo-yo's or so. This is more decorative than functional. It looks beatiful on a bed, or just draped on the rocking chair.
