Three or more (I really can’t remember!) years ago I embroidered these pretty motifs in the corners (on the pillow below) and the top and bottom (the next picture below) on some wonderful, very fine French linen using DMC Floche a Broder thread from Hedgehog Handworks. The centre scene on the pillow also came from France and I knew I would use them in a winter themed bedroom at Christmas someday. I then put them safely away, waiting for the time when I would eventually make them into pillows.
Here are links articles I wrote about embroidering these pillows.
Winter Linen Halfway There,
Over the Christmas holidays, my brother and his wife will be coming to visit us in Berlin. Naturally, I want to make their stay as special and as memorable as possible. This includes the room in which they will stay during their visit.
A few weeks ago, when I was thinking about how to decorate their room, I had an Ah-Ha! moment: this was the perfect time to make up these pillows!
I’m still working out what duvet covers to put on the bed that will best highlight, not overwhelm, the pillows but I think they look very cozy and wintery!
This is one of the few projects I’ve finished – there are so many more in the large artists portfolio, all zipped up and safely stored under the bed! Someday I really must finish them all! How long does it take you to mount, frame, make into pillows, etc. your pieces of embroidery? Am I the slowest in the world?
