I'm back... and I made a pillow!

HI Friends!

It felt good to be away... 
getting projects done around the house, and spending time with friends... 
but it feels good to be back too! I missed you!

Our master bath project is complete... and I can't wait to share the pictures with you tomorrow!!

We had a wonderful weekend with out of town guests, an awesome cookout, and we were crazy busy at the store. I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life... all around us just making this a very wonderful weekend.

I also wanted to share a quick
(seriously, threading the damn bobbin is the hardest part. Why is that so dificult for me??) 
pillow I made tonight. 

I found this place mat at target... loved the pattern and picked it up for under $3. Fold it in half, sew it up on 2 1/2 sides... leaving a little space to fill with stuffing. Turn it back right-side-out and fill with fluff. Hand stitch it closed. ta-da.
(note to ra: this is the first thing I've made since our sewing lesson... I need some motivation!!)







Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far... can't wait to make my rounds and check out what you've been up to since I've been away. Check back tomorrow for the master bath reveal. (I'm even gonna tell you how much I spent!)

Oh I'm going to have to try this. I really want to start getting more use out of my sewing machine. I have to get my husband to thread my bobbin for me, I have zero luck with it.

Very cute!! Also, do you like your Brother sewing machine? I want to invest in a machine but I have no clue where to start, what to look at, etc?

Cuteness! I've missed you! I made a pillow this summer and was SO PROUD! Yours looks terrific and what a good idea. Cute and affordable. I can't wait to see your bathroom reveal. Don't even get me started on the bobbin...

So cute! I have a sewing machine just sitting in my closet. Have had it for YEARS...but I dont know how to sew...specifically thread the bobbin. Go figure.

I love the white comforter with the bright pillows..might have to copy you on that. And I totally feel your bobbin pain. I have to sew in the bonus room with the door closed because there are alot of bad words flying around in there!
