I wanted to learn oldfashioned Swedish wool embroidery, and at the same time I suspected my dear friend S was about to get married. Why start with something easy? I bought black wool and drew the pattern with inspiration from old wedding pillows from southern Sweden. The wreath is the size of a regular dinner plate (I know because I used one to draw it) I was about halfway done  when i got the wedding invitation! Sewing the pillow together was scary but it worked out nicely. The wonky-looing corner in thes picture is actually straight. I made an opening in the back in case they need to take the pillow out, but i forgot to take a picture of the back.


The pillow was a huge hit at the wedding!

Having trouble uploading the close up of the birds, but you can get a pretty good look at them in the first picture.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I wish I had some more crafty friends that could pull this off before my wedding next month Wink Your friend is so lucky to be receiving this. I love all the different flowers and leaves, and the birds are adorable.
