    Special wedding present

    My oldest grandson is getting married in March. The couple designed their own invitation. The design is made up of leaf-shaped trees in rust and olive greens with 2 blue birds underneath the trees. There is a reddish heart above the birds and there are small leaves falling from the larger leaves.

    I am going to make a pillow with these designs appliqued on it (after I enlarge them enough). I hope that it turns out well. I was especially inspired to do this when they found a gold necklace with 2 love birds and a heart hanging from the chain. It was my Christmas present with instructions to wear it to the wedding! I will always cherish the love they expressed with this!

    What a romance these two must have, lucky them. I think an applique pillow sounds lovely. Be sure and post when you are done.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I love how you described the invitation - I could just picture it in my mind. I hope you will share photos of your project, the invitation, and the necklace when you finish. The couple sounds super special!

    me too. I saw all of it in my mind, including you at the wedding with your necklace in place for all to see. You are blessed , and how can that couple not end up with a wonderful marriage. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to the pillow or quilt as well.
