Scrappy pillows

First let me say “Thank You” for commiserating with me on our unfortunate problem of Friday. It could have been so much worse. I still have some work to do on an area of carpet around the bathroom but thankfully it was mostly grey water from a load of laundry and my shower. I know there are hidden dangers here but I think we’ll be OK and not have to replace the entire carpet.

There was time this weekend for visiting and sewing and a intimate Birthday Dinner with Hubby on Saturday 🙂

The other day BJ posted a picture of some lovely pillows (click here). I love making pillows but for some reason haven’t made any since last summer’s pillow making marathon for the porch to get ready for my daughter’s wedding. The one thing I have tons of is scraps of fabrics. I don’t keep tiny pieces but if it’s at least a foot square, I can’t throw it away. So, over the nest few weeks I hope to get some new shams made for my couch pillows and maybe even some for my Etsy shop, we’ll see. This is the first one for the couch…….

And, this one I made for my Hubby. I had a small piece of the “Li’l Cowpokes” material left over from the Wall Pocket and my Hubby is just a “Li’l Cowpoke” in his heart so it was a perfect decorative pillow for his side of the bed 🙂

    I LOVE material scraps. I don’t sew that much but I enjoy just handling the fiber and playing with color combos.
    Looks like Ohio is in for some sunshine this morning!
