I'm currently working on an heirloom photo pillow. It is decidedly Victorian in flavor in soft shades of gold and ivory. A lace-framed tulle pocket provides a spot to tuck in a favorite photo, wedding invitation or vintage postcard. It's completed except for the stuffing and embellishment, some hand-beading, a few pearls, silk flowers, tassels, etc. It's a Christmas present for someone who will remain unnamed lest she read my blog before December 25th. I'll post a pic as soon as I get the handwork done and a decent photo taken.
In the meantime, here are some pretty pillows found online.
And some past pillows of my own...
