lavender pillow

A few weeks ago I shared with you the harvest of my lavender

and the fabrication of scented sachets.

Well I just received the newest PB catalog
and of course it is full of lavender!

No wonder I am, like a lot people(!), a fan of their stuff!
Who is copying who?
Please do not answer that!

There are a few cute pillows
and this one really caught my eye:

so beautiful, embroidered on linen!

So of course I had to make my own version
as I have done with the olive pillows.
See why there was no need to answer the previous question!

I drew some simple lavender stems
and embroidered them using embroidery floss.

I used green 522, brown 407 and 3 purple blues: 340, 3807, 792.
The flowers were embroidered using a double daisy stitch,
called in French point de Berry, a daisy stitch is stitched inside the first daisy stitch.

I then added some extra flowers and leaves,
using some actual lavender as inspiration.

I think it looks pretty good
and Miss C. said it smells good,
the power of suggestion!

Happy sewing!
