Here comes the sun…and there it goes again
The sun made an appearance for about 10 minutes this afternoon, so I grabbed my two new pillows, a chair and my camera and rushed outside to take some pictures for The Boutique.
The clouds were moving quickly, so I furiously snapped photos each time the sun peeked out. I’m lucky I did, because moments later, it went back behind the clouds again. And there it stays.
I love. This. Pillow. I love it so much that I want to keep it. But I can’t. It doesn’t match anything in our home and we already have too many pillows. So I won’t. But I want to.
The pink whale and the aqua blue water spurt (love!) are appliqued onto the brown background with fusible web and finished with a stitch.
The whole pillow is bordered with a one-inch strip of pink polka-dots, and the opening in the back is finished off with pink binding.
She can be found for sale here. That’s right, I said “she.”
Before the sun went away for good, I also was able to slip in a few shots of the octopus pillow,
which can be found in The Boutique here (update: SOLD!!).
This graceful creature is made of pale yellow fabric, appliqued onto a deep purple background, and bordered in a rich aqua.
I worked a little today on the seahorse pillow that I’m making for our home. I wonder how much longer this under-the-sea phase will last.
Alex and I are going to the movies this evening to see Juno, which we’ve heard is great. I’ve adored Michael Cera since Arrested Development. I wonder if he’s that sweet and likeable in real life. I like to think he is.
