Taking a Break

I am taking a break from blogging for awhile. We got some bad news and I do not have it in my heart to blog.

Another Pillow for the Guest Room

I made one more pillow cover for a pillow in the guest/sewing room. I just cut the fabrics in strips and sew them together. I than put them on some batting and backing and quilting them together.




         I than sew it to another backing so I could slip a pillow form in it.




Now I have two pillows for the bed. I plan on making a third one, but it will be a few months. I have seen crazy quilting pillows and they are so pretty, but I have to learn how to make them first. I have a list of projects I want to get down before I start making them.



My next project for the room is to stock up on my homemade candles and than I will give you a tour of the newly decorated sewing/guest room.

Flying Geese Wall hanging

Another project done for the sewing/guest room. This time of the year I am getting ready to do my Spring cleaning, but I have decided to put it off. I am making things for most of the rooms so I decided to spring clean each room when I am done making things for them.

A dear friend sent me some quilting books a few months ago and this is where I got the idea of the flying geese wall hanging. I am still a beginner, but these books really help me to learn.




  At first I was thinking about putting a dark red binding around the piece, but changed my mind and decided to put yellow around it.

     

          Here is the finished project.



   When I am done with my sewing projects I will show you the finished room. I decided to put all my craft making things in this room. On one side is the crafts and the other is the guest bed and dresser. I will show you more of this cabinet later. I love making candles and it has all my supplies. I need to make more candles soon, my supply is very low.
