Pillow Factory Seeks New Machine

throw pillowOver the weekend, my house abandoned it’s home like feel and instead took on the identity of a pillow factory.  Along with making over two dozen throw pillows for the upcoming Beehive Bazaar, I also started a few new quilts, cleaned the entire house (including the oven which use to cause the fire-alarm to go off every time it was used), did a few loads of laundry, planned this upcoming weeks meals, sent out a few invoices…

Ok, I think you get the idea.  Basically, I got a ton done.  Some of you are probably a bit envious right now, wondering how I possibly could of accomplished so much.  I contribute my success to three variables:

1.  Josh, my sweet husband, took my beautiful daughter to Idaho for a long weekend, to visit grandma and grandpa.

2.  I turned the computer and electronics off and instead dove into my huge fabric stash.

3.  I kept my mind alert and occupied with lots of coffee and great books on tape.

As a result, I crossed a lot off my to-do list, and I was able to spend a lovely Sunday evening with my daughter and husband, who I missed dearly while they were gone.

Do you want to see what I made?  Here are a few photos…

The pillow pictured above captured my heart after I made it, and so I decided to keep it.  I did not do the embroidery shown, instead it was a clever vintage find of mine from many months back.  Doesn’t it make a beautiful pillow?

Do you like my couch pillow?  I love doing literal work!

And the best news of all is that I finally have a new machine.  I’ve been looking for a used Pfaff for awhile now and when Josh was in Idaho he found this beauty.  Can you believe it?

Needless to say, I don’t think the sewing is going to slow down in this household.

      Thanks! I wasn’t planning on putting these up in my shop until December 5th or so, after the Beehive Bazaar. Are you going to attend? If you’d like though, I can do a custom listing for you. Let me know 😉
