Thankful Day 16
Today I’m thankful for getting my clam shell pillows done (though you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for pics). You see I hate to sew. Well I don’t hate it but I don’t enjoy it either. I find it stressful. But I’m also cheap. It is cheaper to make some things than to buy them. So I get these bright ideas and run with them. I decided I wanted to make pillows in shades of blue, green, purple and black for my living room (peacock themed). I wanted the patches to be scalloped shaped. So I googled and read, googled and read. Then I cut and sewed with dark yellow thread. Then found some metallic blue fabric for the back and figured how to sew it all together (without the pretty blue, rage inducing slick fabric driving me crazy). Made some oopsies along the way but nothing utterly horrific. Finished them up today. Finally. Boy-child claimed the other quilted pillows for his room. So yeah, I’m thankful that they are finally done.
