Embroidered pillow, or, what to do with the stag
Last year, at a flea market in France, I found an embroidered piece of fabric.
Seeing that I have a bit of an obsession with stags and deer, I bought it and carried it back to Africa.
Here I turned it into a pillow by sewing some white cotton on as a backing.
Since then the pillow has been living in a storage box in the cellar. I regularly took it out and placed it in different
spots around the house, but after a short time it always ended up back in the box.
Something about it was just too much.
Yesterday I unpacked it yet again. This time I decided to change it a bit by sewing some pieces of material on top
of all the embroidery:
I quite like it (so far), Eva liked it better before, and my man and the cat do not care either way.
So at least for today it will stay :-).
Have a beautiful day!
Lots of love,
