I have not much progress to show on my lizzie*kate project, but one of the advantages of having just started blogging is that I can show you projects I have finished in the past.
DH and I only got married 2 months ago after having been together for 15 years and I thought that this special occasion was well worth a special stitching project. I did not succeed in finding any wedding sampler I really liked and so I decided that I would stitch a ring pillow. I wanted something special and being all but a fan of laces and rushes, the design had to be a little different from the ones typically stitched for weddings.
I finally found a wonderful pattern by Faby Reilly that uses variegated and metallic threads, beads, some speciality stitches like satin hearts and is finished as a biscornu. Here is the little beauty:

I originally had planned to use it as a pin cushion after the wedding but so far I have no yet had the heart to remove the satin band and stick my pins in...
I hope you all have a wonderful stitchy week!
