Here's how the pillow started. 12x12, which will be pretty small when it's stuffed with a pillow form. Embroidery. Venise lace. Over night I've beaded the lace, and it's looking pretty good. (Though not symetrical. I just don't seem to be able to master symetrical, no matter how many rulers, marking pens, and pins I use.) Neither Michaels nor Hobby Lobby has white silk ribbon, so I tried doing some rosettes with organza ribbon. I don't like them. So I'm picking up Annie and Olivia in a few minutes, and we're going on a silk ribbon and Mexican food hunt. Not that we expect to find both at the same place.
