A year and a half, that's how long it's been since I've made one of my Crazy Pillows. Just before we moved to Kentucky would have been the last one.
Whenever I'm working on one, I have the next one in my brain and kind of laid out, so I can be thinking about it too. So a year and a half ago, I had pulled fabric and drawn a diagram.
Finally--in the last couple of days--I've begun work on it. And this one is a challenge. I'm taking a Shaker Tree of Life that I embroidered
and adding some Swedish material that I LOVE, which I also embroidered
And am putting those two together with some costly silk that I'm in my madness trying to pleat.
This is where you tell me that it's going to be okay...that I should persevere...
The next Crazy Pillow? It's using some antique French laundry tape that has the initials B H on it, so guess who it's for?!?!?!?! Yip...Bethie! It could be for Ben, but I'm not sure he'd appreciate a Crazy Pillow with antique French laundry tape. (might be wrong).
