Here's the little pillow I've been working on. My first pillow with a ruffle! It's inspired by the pillow you see below, clipped from a magazine. (I think it's an old issue of Country Living.) The peonies in our garden were beautiful but have withered away. When I saw this pillow in the magazine, I thought it would be a nice way to remember them. We're also in need of some summery pillows (a tad behind here, I know). I don't think the embroidery looks nearly as nice or peony-like as the one in the magazine, but I still like it. I just sketched the drawing freehand by looking at the magazine. It probably would have been much better if I had actually made a copy, blown it up and traced it. Oh well. I made the ruffle from some old curtains my mom gave me. And the back of the pillow is ticking. Awww, sweet peony pillow!
