Our older son will be getting married in September. It is a very exciting and busy time, with lots of details to attend to. I am working on a few "crafty touches" for the big day. One of the things they thought I could do is to make the ring pillow.
I made the ring pillow for our wedding and also for a few other family weddings. The top of our pillow was needlepoint. This took me several intense weekends of work during law school -there was a lot of ivory background to fill in! (This is not a very sharp photo - I had to zoom in on a large group photo to show the pillow. I'll have to find the pillow and take a new photo)
When my Dad moved to the retirement community, we needed to empty his home of over 40 years. This box was with my Mom's things. She died just before their 49th anniversary. If she was still alive, they would have celebrated their 64th anniversary last week.
The wedding veil is long gone (the tulle disintegrated over time) and the headpiece is not in very good condition after all these years. The small pieces have started to come off the band.
My plan is to incorporate a few of these little flowers on the ring pillow as a way to remember my Mother on the wedding day. I know she would have loved the role of "grandmother of the groom"
I also want to use the graphics and font from the box for some digital projects.
The little cherubs are adorable and I see some other pieces of the artwork that will be nice additions to my digital library.
I am trying to work out the final plan so I can be sewing or embroidering while we are traveling this summer. So ... back to the sketching and planning - any suggestions?
