Old, new, borrowed & blue

I offered my cousin to make a ringpillow for her wedding. I had this tutorial in mind. For the pillow I used old silk curtains. The flower was made of the new fabric of her dress. I embroidered something on the back in blue. And here you can see the borrowed part: a golden cross I inherited from my deceased grandmother. It's the brides grandma too. So, I sewed it on the pillow, under the flower. In that way grandma was also present in our minds during the ceremony.
