We have several items to make our time
So, I kept building up the logs till the pillow cover was 16" on all sides. There was one problem though. And its my favorite kind of problem. I had run out of fabric! I needed something for the backing. As hubby reclined on the couch playing Bejeweled on his ipod (I HATE BEJEWELED) and Hire-A-Hubby drilled though the floor in the flat next to ours (ON A SATURDAY!!! HUBBY GO HOME!!!) I quietly excused myself so as not to arouse suspicion, jumped in the car, and drove to Spotlight.
I love Carnegie Spotlight a little bit less now then I did before. I blame the ladies at the Guild. They have introduced me to fabrics and designers I never would have known about before - evil doers! And so despite the fact I can't afford those fabrics and designers, I feel a bit snobbish about Spotlight now. That all fades though as I walk past the Quilting Corner. I am thrilled when I find some polka dots that will make great backing for the pillow at a really good price. I love Spotlight again!
The Pillow was a success. In fact, it was too successful. It has now been taken from our office and sequestered in the home of the birthday celebrant. Its a good thing though. A pillow this cute would wink at me and inspire more sewing. Bad Pillow!
