Busy at the Sewing Machine

Hello again... I have gotten a new computer and don't quiet know how to use it yet ...so I am on the old one. I have been sewing up a storm and have made about 12 pillows, 4 cornis boards, 3 runners and ONE big mess. Sewing is soooo messy, and so am I. I clean it up and it is messed up is 2 minutes. Oh Well... who said being creative was neat??? Here is one of my favorite pillows in my house . The ones above are my couch and I just love the mix of colors. I am going to go to my daughter-in-laws and take pictures of her new pillows and cornis boards, they are so cute. I can't wait to share them with you.
Ron, my husband and Jerry, Donna's husband, have a favorite saying ..."We always have to make everything such a Grand Production"....well we have done it again. We had our Valentine dinner and we had a wonderful time. Barbara, my best friends daughter is a Chef and she cooked and served our dinner. Her helper and friend Denise helped prepare the feast. It was fabulous!!! We had salad, Chicken Cordon Blue, her version, spinach and garlic mashed potatoes. Then for dessert we had chocolate cake. Truly the food was better than any restaurant that we could have gone to. But the best thing was spending a wonderful evening with our Honeys and the 4 B's; Donna, Neta, Barbara and Me...I will have pictures of the table soon. It was so over the top, of course , and so beautiful.
Well it is late and I have to get some sleep so I can finish my pillows tomorrow. Be inspired and take in the beautiful weather God is going to provide for the next few days...B

Good Morning ... I have been soooo busy making pillows for my BFF , my Mom, my daughter-in-law and me... You should see my craft room... ...NOT... sewing is so messy. The pillows are very creative... and very colorful. I will have pics later.

I have also made some new cornish ( is that how you spell it???) boards for my kitchen and they are so cute. I used burlap!!! I had bought a burlap pillow at Canton and tore it apart and put it in the middle of the big board. I also used burlap chair strapping. Hope the picture inspires you to step out of Your box.I have a vintage garden table and I am going to paint 1 2 3 4 on , of course, burlap and put on the chair seats.As soon as I get these done I will take a pic.

We are taking a class at The Paper Crown tonight ;such a fun place; with Franc. We have never taken her class before , and we are so excited. It is the cutest Valentine box. Then next week another darling Jackie creation. This is such a fun outing, you get inspired, learn new tricks and have a fun evening out with creative people. You should go by and take a look. The classes fill up fast so you might want to get on their email list.

Well off to buy more pillow forms and material... Have a Great Creative Day
