Hmmmm, well now that I look at this final pillow in conjunction with my others, it sticks out like a sore thumb....but it won't be situated next to its cousins anyway! This is just to show you all of them together.
This last one
took a bit more time, but it was fun, and I had some good entertainment. (I was watching some instructional dvds while I sewed.) This one incorporates many of my shibori fabrics from the wonderful workshop I took with Jan Myers Newbury a couple of years ago. I hated cutting into those pieces, but they weren't doing anyone any good sitting in a stack of fabric. And they all are so pretty that they need to be appreciated!
Here are the pillow backs
They look almost as pretty as the fronts! And what a quick and easy way to change the look of our living room!
Here's what arrived in our market basket yesterday
I am enjoying roasting loads of veggies on our gas grill this summer. Last night I sliced up the Tromboncino squash, drizzled it with olive oil, shook on a bit of s & p, and tossed it into the grill basket. I added another basket with some of the rose gold potatoes, and then I put on some slices of watermelon and peach halves in another grill pan. There's nothing like a summer supper off of the grill.
Tonight's dinner will probably feature grilled corn, okra and tomatoes. MMMMM!
I found this wonderful seersucker at the local (horrible) fabric store the other day
Guess what I'm going to do with it????? Our little town is actually getting a JoAnn's! I'm hoping that with a bit of competition, both will have a better stock than the current store has. I would hate it if the new kid on the block drove the old one under....but we shall see. Speaking of new stores, we are also being gifted with a yarn shop....a real yarn shop, not just the JoAnn's!! WooHoo!!! Life is indeed good!
