Creating a Happy, Colorful, Handmade Home & life on the shores of lake superior

One Down . . .

Remember this fabric?  Before she and her sewing machine had a minor disagreement, my mom was able to whip up a pillow for me.  Looks fantastic, right?  So cheery (and washable!) and that makes me smile.  Mad props to my mom for getting a perfect fit and sewing in a barely perceptible zipper.  I'm looking forward to her sewing me more because I am greedy like that.

I will be internet-less for a few days.  While I'm disconnected from the world, check out my DIY Projects page - I added my new projects.  And we have been hard at work on a BIG reveal so stay tuned . . .

Have a fabulous weekend!!


  1. The fabric is so wonderful.I love the retro feel :)

  2. I think the colors in that fabric are wonderful. Sorry your mom and her sewing machine are squabbling. I'm not getting along with mine either at the moment. The last time I tried to make pillows, the tension got all fouled up, and the thread kept knotting, no matter how I reset it. So frustrating!


You've made my day - I love hearing from you! I approve comments only to keep out the spam, so don't worry if your comment doesn't pop up right away.
