It has been a long time since I last posted on my blog. I have been wanting to do it but when writing is not your strongest suit, it’s hard. Well, enough of making excuses! I decided today on Valentine’s Day that I will show my blog some love and update my readers, if I even have any;)
I will start with the most recent tutorial, the Rustic Ring Bearer Pillow. This was fun since I asked my community what style Ring Bearer accessory they would like to see – most voted Rustic. The choices were Rustic, Formal, or Steampunk. So here is the Rustic Ring Bearer pillow:)
The process was fun and the embroidery work connected me to my childhood. In August 2017, my best friend Cathy texted me the photo below during her Hurricane Harvey mandatory evacuation. I couldn’t believe she still had this coin purse I handmade for her from the 4th grade. This touched me on so many levels. First, I was surprised she still had it after all these years and second, it meant that much to her to evacuate with it. Now talk about feeling the Valentine’s love:) So her text was the main inspiration behind my Rustic Ring Bearer Pillow. I knew I was going to somehow incorporate embroidery work since the last time I tried it was the fourth grade.
Well, thank you for reading and Happy Valentine’s Day!
