While I had all the laces and embellishments out to make the challenge pillow, I thought I might as well make a couple of other things. I do love little lavender pillows, the scent of lavender is so soothing and little pillows just look so sweet scattered about.
I had put a couple of images from a lovely old book I had found a little while ago, on the same page as the challenge pic, to fill the space. Couldn't just leave them lying around, had to use them, didn't I, lol? Well, I only managed to use one, hand stitching and embellishing takes time but I think it is worth it. This little lavender pillow is covered in antique and vintage lace, sweet little lace motifs, mother-of-pearl buttons and sparkling crystal bicones.
And what else have I achieved today? Hmm, not an awful lot, lol, a few loads of laundry, making an even bigger mess with all my laces and craft things, and thats about it. Perhaps tomorrow will be tidy-up day. My family lives in hope.
