Hand Embroidered Pillows

When I was in WalMart today, I picked up a 3rd package of alphabet beads.  Can you believe, there is only 1 "T" in the package?  But there are 4 "X's" if not more!  What is up with that!  Does anyone need alphabet beads with the letter "X"?  I have way more than I need!  LOL!

Anyway, now I can at least finish my Marie Antoinette quilt because I finally have 3 "T's" to spell out her name!

For now, I thought I'd share a few new things that mom made.  First is her Tinted Embroidered Butterfly Pillow:
I think Mom used a vintage embroidery pattern from my collection.  Next is mom's Crocheted Bonnet Lady Pillow:
Mom used a vintage dresser scarf to create this pretty cottage accent pillow.  Notice the flower beads on the green ribbon bows!

I also added a few of my Unique Handcrafted Greeting Cards to our Boutique:

I love the soft pastel colors of vintage greeting cards and use them often to make new ones!  Of course I add lots of glitter!

Well, those are my pretties for today!  I'll get Block #9 of my Marie Antoinette quilt finished up and have a photo for you soon!

I have had trouble leaving comments here lately so I hope this goes through. Use those X's and a few O's for hugs and kisses MA is giving to everyone! Love the dresser scarf pillow! Tell Mom hi! I have not talked to her in a long time.

there are never enough of the letters you need !
Now take those X's and add some O's and you will have some hugs and kisses to put on some pillows.
