How can it be Thursday?
My biggest accomplishment this week? I actually vacuumed my home from top to bottom, all 600 and some feet of it…AND cleaned the bathroom including the dreaded tub. When I start to notice the cobwebs, you know it’s bad. I used to be such a good housekeeper until I started sewing.
Very little sewing actually happened this week because of my growing list of neglected duties. My Mom’s birthday is May Day, so I did whip up a little zippered pouch for her yesterday. I’ll pop some photos in it of her Grandchild, and her 70s prescription sunglasses that I found in a coat pocket here…no, maybe I’ll do her a favor and not let her know I found those. Believe me they have not come back in style.
My mother, who is also a quilter, and I have VERY DIFFERENT tastes in fabric, so I hope she likes it.
I also bought this pillow at the local grocery. My original idea was to copy it and take it back, but sometimes it’s just easier to be the purchaser. I would like to copy it sometime though.
I love the stitching. The quality of the construction, fabric and insert is rather shocking actually. I’m sure I don’t want to know the manufacturing ethics behind it.
It will actually live in our bedroom with these pillows. It will go lovely with the Citron walls, or excuse me, “Cumin Spice.”
