New Project

Transitioning from summer to fall is, for me, a bit like turning a big ship around.  I seem to have trouble getting moving on anything creative for a few weeks.  But I think I'm feeling motivated again.  I've been spending time at my sewing machine. 

Our youngest daughter headed off for her sophomore year of college, and she now has a small apartment on campus.  We bought her a black futon/couch for her living area.  To add some color, she asked me if she could take a very colorful lap quilt I made a few years ago.  I wish I had pictures of it to show you, but I did manage to find some strips of fabric that I had used for it.  So I sewed them into a couple of pillows, and I'll put them in the mail to her tomorrow.  I think she'll love them!  Here they are:
I made them as pillow covers, so they can be washed.  I found these sweet buttons in my button jar, and I think they make the back opening look really cute!
I feel very accomplished!  I didn't have to buy anything for this project -- I even had the pillow forms in the house.  And I can't wait to send them off.
