New Pillows and Totes

So yesterday I was able to finally get some sewing done! Now my house looks a tornado went through here, but I guess you have to let it go, to get things done :)
Here are a few pillows I got done.. The aprons are getting final touches and I will show those tomorrow
This fabric is soooooo pretty in person.. My pictures are terrible.. Sorry for that.

I found this fab fabric at JoAnn's in the "designer" section..

I can't get enough of the old quilts.. I put them on totes (see below) and pillows anything I can find.

All those old yummy feed sack fabrics.. Love them!

I also am in LOVE with Anna Maria Horner's new fabric line! I made these for the shop, but have some ready to go on my sofa as well.

Aren't those butterflies beautiful?

The colors are just great!

A couch full of pillows :)

Here are the totes I have been making.  I just love how simple but pretty they look with the old quilt squares.. You can NEVER have enough bags! :)

And here is the sweet little statue I found at an antique shop a while back.. I just thought she was so sweet, so I brought her home with me.  She has no markings so I have no idea what it is or who made it, but I just liked her.
Hope you are having a great day and staying cool!  I hate to complain about the heat after the nasty COLD winter we had, but come on!  Just one or two days of cooler weather will be nice so I can finish up some outdoor painting and projects.. PLEASE :)
Well off to run a full day of errands.. and by errands I do mean a stop  at a junk store or two.. I will have to bribe my kids with ice-cream, but it's a win win for everyone.. Have a great day!


  1. What a fun day! I wish I was sitting next to you with my sewing machine.

  2. Your pillows are amazing and so colourful.
