Sew me sumthin'!

When it's still 30-something degrees at the end of March, 
regardless that the calendar says it's Spring...and the rest of the 
world has flowers sprouting up, I am
forced to start a new hobby.

This hobby may cost my husband a little bit more money 
every month, and the kids will definitely get neglected....but he will come
home to a house chock full of color and comfort, 
cuz gosh darn it....he married a woman whose gonna make this house 
a home! {like he cares about color and comfort}

After seeing my new headboard every day for the last couple of weeks
I realize it's pretty grand-e-ous...I mean, it's 4 feet tall, so
it needs something to pull the whole look together.

That would be pillows.
Pillows are every woman's friend.
And I'm about to have about 20 new friends in this house.
Watch out world, I've got a new hobby.





 And here is a sneaky peaky, cuz I love to give them.
Really, this could turn into a problem,.  When I get something in my head, I can't
get it out and I need to conquer my need for new pillows in
every.single.room.of.this.house.


 Sew, after receiving a short refresher on Sewing 101 from
my Mom this morning....I realized not much has changed since my
Home Ec days in high school.

Sew, I don't think it will be that difficult.
And it's just sew apparent I will have 20 new friends by the end of 
next week....pending good behavior from the kiddos and a continued
lack of spring weather in these parts.




Sew, do you think my Mom noticed when I stole her 
sewing machine?

Love all your fun fabrics! I am a pillow nut myself! As I was arranging the 5 I currently have on my kitchen bench, I was wondering hmmm....where can I add MORE pillows?! LOL Can't wait to see how yours turn out!
