Be Still My Beating Heart

The Melissa Shirley heart pillow is back from the finisher.  I love it!  The finishing is simple. Well, sort of simple.  We inset the needlepoint into the perfect shade of red orange silk and pleated the inset.  A covered cord is then wrapped with 7mm ribbon in the same orange that we used for the swirls.  The whole pillow just glows.  The only word for it is yummy.  Sort of a really decadent box of chocolates, kinda yummy.

Here we are, before and after......






Until next time......

Oh, my! This is lovely, Ruth. The finishing really sets the design off. Congratulations on a great collaboration with your talented finisher.

Hi all, glad you like the pillow. Let me tell you, the photo doesn't do it justice. You'll just have to come visit to see it live and in person. We'd have such fun!
