Hello and happy Sunday! Since I have changed my sewing room to the living room, I have been busy working on some old projects left undone, and then also managed to whip up a couple of Halloween things. I am a big fan of Lynette Jensen's patterns and fabrics. I also have a lot of her books. I made this little Halloween pillow the other day from the Treats No Tricks book.
The pillow back is also a Thimblerries fabric from several years ago. I love this pillow pattern because I like to do the envelope fold over style of pillow for easy laundering. And also, this makes such a nice crisp, neat back for the pillow too, when using a large piece of fabric doubled to size, using the fold as the opening pieces.
I was going to bind this, but then I had a lightbulb go off, and remembered a frame I had in the garage that was about the same size. Sure enough it was, and even though I had to hide the green borders on the sides, one side shows a wee more, because it looked best in the frame slightly off center to show the stars and moon. I used my stapler and tacked it down on the backside of the frame, and voila....
I have begun to turn my old sewing room into the new guest room. I still have much to do in there. The closet still holds my things for sewing, and the walls need some patch and paint. A rug for the side of the bed, maybe some pillow shams. But it is a nice room for a guest room. So bright and cheerful. We have a sliding french door that goes out onto the patio with a view of the pool and grove beyond. We had our first guests last night. Our two granddaughters Hannah and Claire.
I put the carved wood table that was in our entryway in here, and also a lingerie chest I brought down from the cabin.
That was our weekend. Geeps is out back grilling up some hot dogs. We are having chili dogs tonight. Easy peasy. Geeps and Gramma are kind of tuckered out!
See you soon!
