The Ring Bearer's Pillow

Have I ever told you how AWESOME my mom is??? She's the most incredible woman I've ever met and she can do wonders with a sewing machine. She has taught me almost everything I've every learned about quilting, sewing, hardanger, serging, cross stitch and she does an incredible job at all these things.
This is the ring bearer pillow for our wedding. She made it using bobbin drawing. She embroidered the front which says Moneik & Paul and 6-07-08 our wedding day on it. Then she did bobbin drawing to get the crazy quiltingness in it. She used irredescent threads and lace to make it. I think it's absolutely beautiful!!! She used the excess off my dress to make the top, so it has a very special part of me, in it. She made it in a heart shape because our wedding theme is two hearts.

You are blessed to have such a mother as you do...be sure to tell her again and again. Some times children just take for granted that parents are supposed to do this and that and never let them know how much they are appreciated. Wish my parents were still alive so I could tell them again how much I love them and thank them for what they taught me.

Countdown to wedding is so close!

What a beautiful treasure from your mother to keep always. I learned to sew from my mom, too, and it's a gift from her that I cherish. Amelia's right..you can't tell your mom too often how much you love her.

Wow that pillow is awesome and it's going to be something that you'll treasure always. Someday you might even pass it down to your own children to use at their weddings.
