Ever since I saw this picture (love the pillow), on Tara's blog, I've been dying to brush the dust off the sewing machine and get the motor reved up! It has been too long since I've created with needle and thread. I recently cleaned out my office closet and had tossed a ton of fabric. But I had quite a few stacks of fat quarters.....hmmm not enough for a pillow unless....it was patchwork. Combining designs from Heather Bailey and Amy Butler seemed a perfect match. In the end, I've decided the ties at the top are too long so I'll cut them in half and add them to the top for an additional closure. Geesh... sometimes I wish I didn't have such an artists eye! lol. I have a fun day planned today of shopping at the barn sale. It will be nice to see those fun gals again. I'm hoping to find some one of a kinds for my office re-do. I have been saying it for a long time, but I'm serious now. Hubby has just finished a whole wall shelving unit for my office. I'm off to a good start! I'll let ya know what I find. Happy Friday everyone!
