Sew Good!

I had a groovy day, not only did I see a dog, I also caught an episode of Perry Mason, The Case of the Bigamist Spouse. I did some sewing and some arranging and some laundry. Talk about shocking. I must have seen a pack of dogs.
So here's the sewing love. I love this pillow so so so much ...

.. I have to have two photos of it. Because I love it. Since I bought that pear fabric I have been imagining a felt pear and it's even better than I thought. Pillows normally aren't my thing, too much figuring out stuff, but I just pulled out Elizabeth's book and her pillow construction instructions are very good. I even resisted the urge to call her and make her tell me how to do it. ( I could do it you know, I could MAKE her tell me.. just ask her.) But she'll appreciate me figuring it out more I think.

The back is nice as well. I have a new love affair with covered buttons. Now I just need to have Holly send me some of her jumbo 2 inch buttons. Those buttons are something else!

So I'm thrilled with pillow in case you're eyes have rolled so far back in your head you missed my ranting and raving. I'm thinking about some Japanese fabric I ordered from Kris. Now how cute will a pillow be with a fun little brown hedgehog on it be? Or a bag?

Crazy I know, but I'm totally inspired to make several fun projects now. And you know, that is just as good as seeing a dog.

Love it! But, you are making me feel so inadequate! I have projects that I need to get done for Christmas and haven't even started my Christmas decorating at home! My poor kids keep asking when are we going to put up the tree? And, I don't see it happening too soon..... Aaaaaagh!!! The pressure, I can't take it!!
Sorry, I feel better now. Glad to see SOMEBODY is getting some sewing done. Could I send you my projects and you could finish them for me? I would do it for you. Ok, maybe not, but I would be WILLING! Merry Christmas!

I'm seriously in love with those pink pears. And with japanese fabrics in general. (we won't even mention the pushes from a certain other blogger that have pointed at Kris's site -- or the fact that I am dying over that hedgehog fabric as well) Ok, back to Christmas present making while I dream of fun Japanese prints and pretty pink fabrics.
