Patty's Pillow

Remember that sneak peek I gave you last week of a work in progress? The one I wanted to finish the following day?

Ha. That was clearly an optimistic deadline for this particular project, which was meant for a friend who is getting married next month. This weekend we hosted a brunch in her honor. Three 4 year olds, a one year old, a second grader, and seven adults. It was chaos, but in a good way. My only regret is that I wasn't able to finish my gift for the bride-to-be before everyone arrived. No matter, in the end I completed it Saturday afternoon and wrapped it up to take to the bachelorette party that night. And then I promptly forgot it and left it on the coffee table at our house. Sigh.


But I was really thrilled to receive the wedding invitation in the mail last Friday. The couple chose a lovely combination of colors that included plum, purple, and pistachio. Much like the colors I picked out for the bride's pillow before I even knew what her color scheme might be. Booyah!

Anyhoo, I'll just take it with us to her wedding.

Shop Update, March 8, 2012

I made some felted heart ornaments from the Fair Isle patterned wool leftover from my patchwork rug.


These would make beautiful decorations for a nursery!

Lately it seems like I've been doing everything other than quilting. After my venture into free motion machine quilting went awry in February, I've been focused on reorganizing my sewing area and supplies. The quilt lab is now in prepped and ready to go, so just maybe I can finish that last quilt and finally start a new one.

Shop Update, March 1, 2012

I just added a pretty throw rug made from felted wool squares to my Etsy store. It's made from a felted wool blanket and several felted wool sweaters in spring colors. 


It makes me think of Easter, and now I have a craving for Peeps and chocolate bunnies.
