Hardanger Ring Bearer's Pillow

Today’s item is a Hardanger Ring Bearer’s Pillow that I made for my daughter’s wedding. I found a pattern I liked, interlaced hearts in pastel pink and blue. It coordinated very nicely with my daughter's wedding dress, which had light blue embroidered flowers on the front. The finishing touch is the organdy ribbon ruffle around the edge. It really is as sparkly as the picture shows.

They didn't use it for the rings, because 1-year-old P. was carrying it, and they thought it (or any rings that might be attached to it) would probably end up on the floor. It was a beautiful accessory, though.

I will see if I can get pictures of a couple of my other Scandinavian country items, since we seem to be in the region of Norway.

This is a mosaic I made through Mosaic maker. The pictures were chosen by searching Flickr with the answers to the questions listed below, picking a picture from the first page from each search. I did cheat and search again on a couple of the questions. The middle figure is Tarzan's friend Jane, but I like the picture, and the thought: buttoned up on the outside, but not necessarily on the inside.

I love your mosaic--they're fun to make. I like also that it answers questions about you. cool idea.

The ring bearer pillow is so pretty-each time I see it I like it better. Marjorie

Aha. Another cookie lover! I love Christmas, but mostly for the cookies. We are lucky enough to have a big kitchen (and two mixers), so we hold a CookieFest every December just before our Holiday Party.
