I Heart Blue! and Only a Few Days Left for the Giveaway!

When I saw this button with the GORGEOUS blue stones, I knew it was destined to be part of a very special pillow.  I worked and worked and finally got it just right. 

The laces and edgings are all vintage and some are handmade.  The 3 crocheted roses were made by me.  I've been crocheting roses while I watch t.v. in the evenings and have a Mason jar full of them!  I can't wait to see how they look on the pillows I'll be making.

The embroidered flower was from a doily, and its edging of white lace was so pretty, I just had to use it!

Did you know buttons are really difficult to sew onto a pillow especially INSIDE a crocheted flower???

Don't forget the 100th Post Giveaway I'm having!  Only 3 more days left to enter.  Be sure and check it out

I really love that particular shade of blue. It's so beautiful...and I always have to wonder about the people who made those pieces you used in your pillow ;) :) :) I wonder what kind of stories that pillow would tell, if it could talk :) :) Have a great week. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

p.s. I LOVE sparkly jewelry :)
