The seeds of Lavender Posy were sown in 2006 when I made the ring bearer pillows for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding. Since then, I have made a number of pillows for friend's weddings and, most recently, for my own daughter's 2013 wedding.
I have sewn for as long as I can remember. My mom taught my sisters and I to sew and we made many of our own clothes as teenagers. I made my own wedding dress followed by bridesmaid and flower girl dresses for my sister's wedding. Mom and I restored her wedding dress for my sister. Lots of baby clothes and toys over the years.... and even furniture reupholstery. And, yes, pillows!
l also enjoy other needle arts, such as cross stitch and crocheting. In fact, as a young Navy wife and mother I had my own business designing cross stitch patterns of Navy aircraft and insignia.
That was many years ago and times are quite different…
