This was done by my grandmother & could be any mountain range but my sister recalls that is that scene is the Grand Tetons.  She also recalls that my grandmother dyed the threads for this piece herself by hand.

So, I decided to replace the wall hanging we had over our bed to with the pillow. Springtime in the Grand Tetons!

Hooked Butterfly Pillow

I’m still incorporating my grandmother’s vintage finished needlepoint pieces into our house. This hooked pillow was done by her many years ago. And, it is in very good shape. I think anything hooked is quite durable anyway.

For now anyway, this butterfly has landed in our rose garden (pillow on our bed). I am mixing cross-stitch & hooking but, thematically it works for me. And, the colors go together good enough.
