Sunday

My Sons was married this week..




My Son was married this past week and I wanted to give him and his new wife something for their home.. And being the fun loving mom that I am, what better item than a pillow telling of their love.... it will sit on their sofa and they will always be reminded of me.

Being in a new duty station (he is in the USCG) I have no idea of their room colors so I tried to find something that would go with what ever decor they choose.. and an assortment of blues might work
for them... 
A simple saying of their love is all I chose to stitch in this cross stitch design..


As you can see,, I used a pattern I found on the internet but changed a few things to make it mine. I also had to take out words that I found did not fit properly and re did some of the design.. not too much extra work but I did have the tiny stitch pulling device that did the trick...


While looking in JoAnns for 'something' extra to add to the design I found these sweet tiny heart buttons...





After finishing the design I then started the pillow.. The fabric I found was a good quality heavy fabric and I just loved the design. Not too girley and it should fit in any home design.


Wishing both "Tom and Michelle" many happy years together and hopefully your future duty stations will be closer to your Mom........
