embroidered pillow

I got this charming vintage pattern from Needlecrafter.com, they have several embroidery patterns for almost any project. I chose to make this one into a pillow. I added some seed beads for flower centers (but you can't see them ) it adds a little sparkle. Instead of piping I just inserted a strip of folded purple material for a color break in the border between the blue and the embroidery. I have always been in love with the old fashioned look of thing from the 20s and 30s and even before that with the Victorian and Edwardian eras. What could be better than vintage lace and linens.

Nice to meet you Wanda. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving comment.

I am adding you to my blog list and will enjoy visiting with you regularly.

Your craft work is lovely. In my past life I have been a crafty person too, but sadly it has been put on the backburner while I am working.

Enjoy your day in your beautiful part of the world.
