Falling Behind

Getting this pillow done by the weekend is going to be almost impossible but I'm gonna try. I have spent too much time looking at it and trying to figure out what I want to do next and what it was about it that was bothering me. I figured out the bothering part... it was the big button. ::sigh:: It stood up too high from the surface of the pillow and, since I'm not doing a bead and button trail anymore (another change) it didn't work by itself.

So now we have another button that really isn't a button. It is a broken Mother of Pearl pin I found at a flea market:
MOP Button
I've been hanging on to this beauty for quite awhile also. Here it is in context, along with the reason there won't be a bead and button trail...
I like the idea of "sentiments" on handwork that is being used for a special occasion, don't you?

Here is the fan with it's beading completed, along with the date of the wedding.
Sep 30

And, lastly, here is another reason I haven't gotten anymore stitching done:
Sienna front
Too many hours have been spent researching, looking, finding, talking and finally buying this lovely vehicle... a 2004 Toyota Sienna.

I like it.

Oh Marty, that is going to be a wowzer of a ringbearer's pillow. It is stunning. Oooh, September 30 is only 10 days away! Yikes!

Congrats on the new vehicle. It's a real beauty. Yes, it does take time to do the research and bargaining! But it pays off.
