Yesterday I had made up my mind to finish the ever growing pile of ironing in my sewing room! I iron all of Greg's work clothes. And a good bit of my own things need ironing too. I usually keep up on it, and don't have more than a few items to do at a time. But somehow I let it pile up to the point of dread. I went in there and tackled about 2/3 of it one evening, and just wanted to get the rest done. Phew.....
When I got down to the last shirt, I unearthed this pillow that I was working on. I am almost done, and I think it will look great on my new wicker set!
Anyway, if you have a Joann's near you, they sell the sample squares of decorator fabric for 2 dollars a piece. They are 24 inch square, heavy duty decorator fabrics, and they make great foundation pieces for pillows, and lots of things. I use them a lot. I have several pretty ones that I use all over the house, and in table settings and all. This one is a buttery soft yellow. I haven't snipped my threads yet on the flower, and I have a few more to attach to achieve the volume I want, but it is turning out well.
I had pretty much decided I was done with my Bobble blanket. But, then I realized I had plenty enough yarn to do another round, so onward I go.
My chickens have been a little bit stingy with their eggs lately. I almost always get an egg a day from each. But they are not sharing so well lately. Molting time maybe? I am not sure. But today, they left me a nice pile of eggs, and I thanked them, and opened their coop for them to go have the run of The Ponderosa.
Go hug your Mama's and Daddy's today.
