The pillow queen....

I just came down from my sewing room and I am pooped. Tonight I finished the room upstairs and it looks great. My last project up there is done, woohoo! This evening I made four pillow shams and four throw pillows. The mural on the door is finished and sealed and the door is hung. I have two kitty's who are happily trying out the new beds upstairs. I feel a pretty big sense of accomplishment..This was our first project together as a couple and I think we make a great team...He does all the electrical and man labor and I sew and paint. I will post pictures, before and after, tomorrow...
Yesterday I made a journal page for the nature journal swap and I also made a bird card. The weather has been so beautiful that I took the pictures outside. It sure doesnt feel like November here and I am grateful for the blue sky and sunshine!



I have to show off the knitted scarf that I won from Robin in her blog giveaway too...It is really cute with my denim jacket...I know sooner or later the weather is going to get cold and I will enjoy wearing this litte beauty. They are little Christmas stockings...too cute!


I also wanted to share two blog giveaways with you all....The first one is Jeans...

She is giving away a bunch of stuff but the best thing is a Moda pack of Christmas fabrics..I am hoping I win that one! She has a giveaway every month and this is her November one....



Then there is a giveaway at http://prairieflowerfarm.blogspot.com for this beautiful frame with a saying...Go enter even though I still hope to win!

What fabulous artwork - and I can't wait to see your before and after photos of 'upstairs' - but of course I will have too.

Not long I hope!
