I've been very quiet for the last couple of days because I've been sewing up a storm. I had two whole days to myself to work on my projects. The first project was finishing the borders on Heartfire......check.
Another project was finishing up a batch of Mittens With Moxie......check
My third project was finishing three yo-yo trees.......check. I cut an old (fake) pearl necklace apart and glued them to the trees. I actually wore the pearls in high school. I wasn't doing my impersonation of Laverne and Shirley....I WAS Laverne! I still have my necklace with an "L" on it. I drew the line when it came to poodle skirts! My mother said I looked like a feather bed tied in the middle. I'll leave you with that visual and move on to the next project.
Two more Nostalgic pillow tops done.....check
.....and double check.
The Season's Greetings center is the same in each pillow, yet they look entirely different. The first pillow is more of a Winter pillow and will work for St. Patrick's Day too for my Irish friend.
The Preview Party hosted by In Between Stitches is this Sunday at the Purple Orchid Inn here in Livermore. Heartfire will be there along with pearl-studded Christmas trees, and mittens. Maybe I'll wear pearls too!
I have another whole day to myself, no classes, no decorating, just a whole day of TIME. What a wonderful gift to myself.
