A Work in Progress
July 26, 2007
I have been working on this little ditty for quite a while. I was inspired by the photo copied onto fabric. And with my love of vintage white decided to make a pillow using vintage damask upholstery fabric. I love the weight and depth of the texture in it. I framed the graphic in ivory lace and then add tiny aurora borealis seed beads to reflect and compliment the blue in this piece. I then added other lace motifs and trims and a few sweet buttons. To tie it all together, I embroidered some ribbon roses in a soft blue tone also using the ribbon for running stitches on the opposite corners. I am making final additions to this piece and then will put her up for sale. I absolutely love the way that she turned out, and would love to keep her, but I am fighting the impulse. I hope to have some "sisters" available for her soon, and in other accent colors. Just know that the predominant color will be a vintage white. I will let you know when I have them available.
