We're still covered in dust but are soooo happy with the way our new little rooms are turning out. If I can get up there with my camera today, I'll share some photos soon.
Despite the chaos, I've been working on pillow covers for some old pillows I had lying around (hence my new spring blog header). Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a slight obsession with making pillow covers. They're just so easy and can really transform your whole room. I think pillows are the best way to add color, pattern and texture without making a huge commitment to any of those things.
I had been scouring flickr looking for inspiration a few weeks ago (check my favorites to see what inspires me). I took the best of maybe three or four different designs and came up with these...
I added a little pleated border to the pinwheel-y pillow just for fun and to see what it would look like. I think I like the added texture.
These are meant to coordinate with my would-be quilt with embroidered flower centers. I imagine it will be a long, long time before I'm showing that one off on my blog.
But pillow covers are relatively quick and painless. I did some straight-line square quilting around the center of each pillow.
The little man is in love.
Just a cute shot of his feet. Boy needs a pedicure!
Come to think of it, so do I!
What are you up to today?
