John decided to make a thank you pillow for his Aunt Isobel. He had a blast once he understood the concept of wonky! He made all the letters, and sewed them together and I just set them in the green fabric and doodled up the pillow with some quilting. It is so cute! She's gonna love it. I have decided that I might make some for my couch- I rarely have throw pillows on the couch, because it just becomes part of the daily chore to pick up the pillows from the floor. What is so hard about keeping the pillows on the couch, I ask? But I made this little pillow cover removeable and so it washes up nice- we prewashed Aunt Isobel's- like that wrinkle-dy look. So... What shall I write on my pillows? I think it would be cute to write out all the little things that we say a 1,000 times a day. Like, "Talk Sweet" "Be Nice" "Love You" and "You're A Buggerhead"- what you think that one isn't quite right? Well, we'll see... Maybe one should say, "Please don't throw me on the floor."
I'm off to the fabric store, today. I have an urgent soldier's quilt to make. You guys know I usually take months to finish a soldiers quilt, but I am determined to getterdone, this week! He is already "overthere" and while the temps are over 100, he says he gets cold at night- can't have that, now can we? I have decided on the coffee time quilt that my Mom made in green- only I'll being doing it in red, white, and blue- hopefully. We'll see what Hobby Lobby has to offer. Hope everyone has a great week with sewing fit into their plans!
