Dear Jacqueline, this is GORGEOUS and the blue monogram is a splendid detail! It's been so much fun to see how your work has developed here on your blog! Congratulations to the bride and groom!

I'm sorry to hear that you're sick, again! I know how it really can get you down and hope you manage to take care of yourself and get well soon! xx


Hi, Jacqueline... oh, but this is just so splendid--all the fine details are just exquisite! Such excellent stitching and creating you've done with this special gift. And I so much enjoyed all the folklore and history behind the meanings. How sorry I an that you are unwell again... Do be taking good care of yourself, rest... and hope the medication will help you. Get well soon, my friend :o) ((BIG HUGS))


Agree with Tracy - the history is so interesting. I was recently married and did enjoy saying the "something old, something borrowed, something blue"! My blue was in my garter belt . . .shhh!

So sorry you tried to comment on my blog, Jacqueline. It was being redesigned so stop by today and tell me what you think about it. I value your opinion!


It turned out beautiful! I love hearing the meaning behind the bridal saying. When I got married, my "something blue" was actually my wedding dress! Yes, I wore a light blue dress. As soon as I tried it on, I just knew it was "me." Hope you feel better very soon!


I had no idea that there was a last line. Aside from sewing a beautiful pillow, I love the meaningful things you've incorporated into it. You are such a sweet person!


This is absolutely beautiful, I'm sure the bride will be so pleased! I love how you stayed true to the original intent of the saying. Such an accomplishment even though you weren't feeling well.... please take care of yourself & I hope you're all better soon!

The work you put into this is incredible, Jacqueline. It is stunning! What a special keepsake for the happy couple :)

Take care of yourself - I hope you are feeling better already!


Jacqueline :) I hope you're feeling better soon. I've been meaning to thank you for your advice. I'm in the midst of starting my own website, so I haven't gotten the chance to thank you! I really appreciate your help!!!

I LOVE this pillow. It brings back many memories of the Brazilian embroidery/Ribbon embroidery my grandma used to do. Your pillow is gorgeous!!!

Have a great weekend :)
