Busy As A Bee...

 
 
 
 
So, I really have been busy this week!!  I had a bride-to-be contact me and ask me to make 25 of my Memory Pillows for her wedding reception.  These pillows are each very unique because I use vintage lace and vintage doilies on each one.  The lace and doilies are all hand-sewn on and then rosettes, pearls, crinkled seam binding, etch. are added making each one an individual heirloom piece.
 
 
 
Each pillow has a pocket formed by the doily and/or lace into which you can add vintage photos, postcards, etc.  This bride is putting a thank you note and a wedding photo in each pocket.  Then the pillows will be placed on the chairs  at the reception.  Neat idea!!  My granddaughter has already made a note of this for her wedding - some day. 
 
This is something I sit and work on at night and then spend a day sewing them up and a day stuffing them.  Keeps me occupied to say the least. 
 
Thought you might enjoy looking at the various pieces - they are all so different.  Enjoy!!
 
Till next time, Judy

  2. What a thoughtful wonderful gift to be given by the wedding couple. I'd love to see what the rest of their wedding is like. Maybe she will let you share photos.

  5. Stunningly gorgeous. Would sure love to see your bride's wedding pictures. Based on her love for your creations, I can only imagine her whole wedding's vision.

    I would love to own one (or more) of your pillows.

  9. Well, you just took my breath away!! Each on is gorgeous, I am afraid I would lose my creative mojo by the time I got to the 5th one, much less 25! What a great job and a wonderful idea that bride had!

  10. So pretty. This would have been so wonderful for my daughter's wedding this past May--or anyone's wedding. Alas, this was the youngest of my four girls,and the others are already married. But the pillows are truly lovely, and I am sure they will become family heirlooms for the lucky recipients.
