Happy dancing for a finish

I just finished sewing the button center onto my ring pillow/biscornu! I like it. I may tweak it a bit, depending on how well that silver ribbon appeals to me. Right now, it's OK, but going downhill fast, especially with the pewter buttons on there. And the buttons may have to be moved a bit northeast. Sometimes I win the sewing battle, usually not.


I was trying for an artsy shot with my veil. Not so successful . . .


My favorite angle. I really do love that saying, "I thine, thee mine." I lurve it!

It's extremely beautiful Rachel! I don't see where you have to do anything else with it. What a nice addition to your wedding ceremony :o)

The biscornu looks beautiful, Rachel!!! Joining you in your happy dance:)

Jennifer said...

Oh pretty!!! I think it came out great - well worth the cursing. LOL

I'd be half tempted to stitch on a little blue swarovski crystal or two on the corners, just for a little bit of sparkle to go with the little sparkle in your veil. What do you think?

Oh, Rachel, it turned out beautifully--congratulations on a job very, very well done :)

I think the silver ribbon goes really well with the biscornu pillow. Not so sure about the pewter buttons, though. They look a bit dark to me. Otherwise, what an awesome piece for your wedding.

Beautiful Finish
Such soft elegant colors

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
