Today I sewed a bit. No I take that back, I sewed what seemed like for hours. I planned on hooking a rug today. I never got to it. I told you last week that one of the things I was good at was using a hula-hoe. Well I remembered something else I am even better at using. A seam ripper. Yep, I use a seam ripper so much that I am quite proficient. I wanted to finish my little pillow from Brenda Gervais called The House of Blue's and Browns. I ripped it out 3 times.
I finally got it finished and I won't put this one away because I really liked this one and I do think it is worth the work.
I am starting to worry about all of these pillows I keep making though. In the Anne of Green Gables series of books, Anne lives for a time in a boarding house with two sisters. One of them is always making pillows and they are every where, even on the stair landings. I am afraid of my house being so filled with pillows like that. I just loved this because I love ticking so much. I just like the way it looks and I like the way it feels.
It was a fun little project. I am currently working on the June Word play like a mad woman. My July Word play should be here next week and I hope I can be finished with June. I also had to stop one of my wool projects because I wanted a lighter background for it so I had to order more light wool.
Just a bit of fun I had in between weeding the garden and all of the other things I do. I hope to have a few more finishes next week. I would like to open a Etsy store but you have to have something to put in the Etsy store to sell. :)
