Ancient mosaics provided an invaluable insight into the ancient Roman world, and were an invaluable record of the culture at the time. This needlepoint design is based on the mosaic "Sleeping Dog" from the House of Lucius Caecillius Iucundus, that Peggy our founder saw, while walking through ancient Rome and Pompeii. Dogs were popular as pets in ancient Pompeii, and this is a typical mosaic that would have been featured in a private home or public building of ancient Rome. Add a little piece of history to your modern living space with this reinterpreted mosaic in needlepoint!


The best needlepoint pillows are the ones we hand stitch from 100% Waverly Wool or DMC cotton. You can choose from over 15 colors of velvet backing, and can opt to add piping around the edge of your needlepoint pillow. If you like, we can customize the needlepoint pillow with a name or change a design to use the colors that you desire.

Every 12 x 12 inch and larger needlepoint pillow comes complete with a zipper in the back to remove the pillow form that it comes with. Our smaller needlepoint pillows are stuffed to size and sealed without the option to remove the stuffing.

Our needlepoint pillows are made by hand, stitch by stitch, so they take 8 – 12 weeks to finish.
