I bought this lovely pillow back in June for a dear friend’s birthday gift. Now that I have given it to her, I can finally show it off! Isn’t it adorable? I love the little bee zooming in for a landing on the flowers. The embroidery on the pillow was done with silk ribbon and cotton floss. If my friend ever grows weary of it, she can regift it back to me! LOL!
I purchased the pillow at a local lavender festival from Lana of Honeysuckle Lane's Simple Joys. I have admired her exquisite handiwork for years, and I was delighted to finally meet her in person. She has been recognized by Early American Life Magazine as one of the very best folk artists in tradition American crafts, and her work has been featured in other national magazines as well. And now that I have met her, I can attest that Lana is as sweet in person as she is talented! If you want to buy her beautiful creations, she has several online sources, including etsy.
