The Blissful Life~ A Flower-Filled Pasture

This is a wonderful, one of a kind, hand smocked, hand embroidered pillow; an original, of my own design that's sure to brighten any room. This reversible pillow is made from 100% cotton, stuffed with polyester fiberfil, back & front- and is completely machine washable. The front is a white cotton with a mini-floral, white design etched on it. I have hand smocked & hand embroidered it using the method of combining smocking & embroidery that I've created for my dresses . The embroidery allows me to do the artwork that I love so much while the smocking creates a nice background and a design that beautifully frames the embroidered scene.

The back of the pillow and second ruffle are also 100% cotton and are created from a gorgeous, top-quality, Laura Ashley mini- print fabric. If a new look is desired, the pillow can be flipped over and the back be used as the front, (as pictured in the 5th photo.).

Creating this pillow has been a painstaking challenging process that's taken several weeks to complete. The ruffle on the front is machine stitched to a piece of piping that is then hand-stitched using tiny stitches, to the perimeter of the smocked/embroidered section. The back ruffle is machine stitched to the matching backing and the entire piece, (backing & ruffle,) are then hand-stitched with hundreds of tiny stitches all the way around the pillow again.

This pillow is a piece of art for whatever room it is placed in and it's so versatile it looks wonderful almost everywhere. It is perfect for a baby or child's room, making a great pillow to sit against the back of a rocking chair or on top of a bed. It adds an excellent shabby-chic feel to a cottage or cabin, and looks wonderful with white wicker furniture. It's soft colors of lavender, white, & a soft blue-green, enable it to blend nicely with a large variety of decor and it's refreshing country scene of two lambs eating their way through a summer pasture is sweet as well as beautiful. This pillow really needs to be seen, as it's so unique it defies description and even to some extent, photos!
