Wedding Pillow Sham
Just to show you that sometimes it takes me forever to finish projects...here's the perfect example. Erik and I were married in April 2007 and I bought this embroidery project, an Anna Griffin wedding pillow sham, not long after we were married. I intended to work on it after all the craziness of the wedding was over, to place on our bed. But that didn't happen, obviously! I worked on it a little bit right around our first wedding anniversary, then put it aside as I did other things. Long story short, I worked on it bit by bit, here and there,until I finally finished it last week.
This was the first time I worked with ribbon embroidery. I also had to figure out a way to transfer the letters from the pattern to the fabric. I ended up using dressmaker's paper, or tracing paper. I considered embroidering the date of our wedding on it also, with leftover floss, but I wasn't sure where to place it without ruinung the overall design, so I didn't.
It looks right at home on the bed with the others!
