I went shopping for some fabric on Thursday. It seems I've caught the pillow bug from Marty! But let me say this, 20 minutes for Marty equals all morning for Cindy! I've made a few pillows in my life, but these corded babies are another thing. (Pic above is the fabric I chose next to my denim couch)
I had so much trouble with the rounded edges and the cording. But I wasn't going to give up! Although their not perfect, there OK.
And after lot's of frustration, here they are!
And Marty's tutorial is just perfect and so easy to follow. Check out her blog here @ A Stroll Thru Life.
And now I'm on a pillow kick and want to make more!
And I did a little re-arranging on one of the kitchen counters.
I think it gives it a little more punch!
I also found a few thrifty finds this past weekend .
This oversize cup and saucer with the cute little bumble bees was only a buck.
And these two sweet little pillows were also only a dollar a piece!
There's that pillow thing again!
OK, now here's something different. I tried that blue hour thingy. I don't have a tripod or probably the right camera for the best evening shots, but still......
It's pretty blue !
It was about 9:15 p.m. when I took this pic. Were pretty North so our blue hour is probably later than many of you. I remember being in Northern Michigan two summers ago and at 10:00 p.m. it was still perfectly light out.
And a question?????
Do you have a favorite summer vacation destination and where is it?
Curious minds, (mine) want to know.
Have a great week,
