pillows and naps...

I finally caught a picture of Cooper with the little kitten, Joe Bobbin curled up with him..Every time I get a camera, Cooper leaps up and grabs his blue stuffed bunny...The only time it isn't in his mouth is when he is asleep. I think he has OCD...bunny obsession...weird. Anyway, Aren't they adorable....Thomas is off sulking somewhere, otherwise he would be in the picture too!



Today was project day around here...We are still working on the upstairs...The floor was ripped up and put back together and I primed the stairs...It has been fun seeing it come together. When it is done, I will definitely post pictures...I am excited for the kids to see it finished. I also spent a lot of time sewing and crafting....I am working on charms, I made a little bird quilt, started on pillowcases to send to Samoa and made two fall pillows....I won Jenny's drawing and it was the dishtowels by Moda that I used. (posted a pic a few days ago)..We were emailing back and forth and she said she envisioned them as pillows...WOW! what a great idea..so I had to take the challenge and whip them up...I always save throw pillows, even when they are outdated..I run them thru the washer and then slipcover them....




Aren't they adorable!!!!! Here are the backside of the pillows....There were three towels so I just pieced them together, and made envelope backs...The only thing I added to the towels was some orange rick rack...I love these! Thank you for the great idea Jenny, and the towels!!!!!




Thank you for all your congratulations! Don and I don't have anything set in stone yet as far as a wedding date..We are thinking February and something in Las Vegas...I am going thru some really rough times, but I am still happy..It is wonderful to be extraordinarily in love with an ordinary guy and have him feel the same way about me....

Oh, that doggy and kitty photo cheers me up on a rotten morning! And your pillows are TO DIE FOR -- that is just the sort of thing I love!
I'm glad you're playing along on Friday for ghost story day!
Also: my husband and I got married in Crystal Bay, NV - at the Cal Neva. It's a beautiful hotel right on the water! Just a suggestion.

That dog and kitty make my heart melt. How sweet. And the pillows are just terrific. I have an obsession for old linens, so why not make pillows? Yayyyy.
Congratulations and all.
