Cross-stitched wedding gift

This is a little pillow tuck that I cross-stitched for a friend's upcoming wedding. Attached on the top are two faux silver wedding bands, tied with a string of faux pearls and black lace. The aida cloth is 14 ct white. DMC floss #310 black was used for the family's surname initial, "D". There is another gift, but it is not pictured because it was not hand-made. The bag in the photo will hold both gifts. To see the back of the pillow tuck, follow the link below my signature.

Here is the back of the pillow tuck. It is a 100% cotton black and white Paris and floral print. The wedding colors are black and white, so this is within that scheme. Do you think the bride and groom will like this gift?

  2. Isn't that special...You are very gifted! Such delicate and painstaking work! I never got into cross stitch, but always admired it. I especially like "D" because it is the Initial of my maiden name. Your friend will love it! Hugs, Laura
