I managed to get a scan last night of my progress on the pillow:

It's coming along. I stitched two more silk feathers last night after I scanned this. It doesn't sound like much but each takes about twenty minutes. Seven more feathers and I'll be done with satin stitch.

As I'm stitching I'm thinking about finishing. I'm still thinking twisted cord. I'm debating endlessly whether twisted cord or ribbon would be better for holding the rings---which might be easier to untie and not knot.

I'm also going to make two small felt pillows, one for the ring bearer to "replace" the fancy pillow and one for the flower girl. I plan to put their initials on them and perhaps a pocket on the back for a note of thanks.
