Wedding Embroidery

Last weekend, while preparing to attend Justin and Grace’s wedding, I realized that, in the general melee of life, I had not bought them a gift. Yikes! What to do? Well, I followed my own advice and asked myself, “What do I have in my hand?” The answer, as always, was embroidery floss and felt. So…having seen some pillows that Clara and Levi were giving Justin and Grace, I quickly copied the general pattern onto some felt, grabbed my embroidery floss and embroidered my way across Nebraska and Kansas.

I liked the “organic” feel of the satin stitches. And I like the way it coordinated with the pillows.

I hope they like it as much as I liked making it!

    For some reason today the song, “nobody does it better” is stuck in my head. Seems appropriate for this project, too! Love ya dear.
