My Mom usually gets cut flowers for Mother’s Day– but this year the flowers are on a pillow.
Being retired and taking up hobbies– my mom’s most recent has been shopping at antique and thrift stores to find me textiles. The pillow above was a little 8″ x 10″ cross stitch that she found–probably not planning for me to cut it up in pieces when she asked me to make them into a pillow–I surged it to a lavender linen. The welt was a bright white that I dyed and added a machine stitch. 18″ x 18″.
