I needed it.
I tore my sewing area and bedroom apart looking for it.
My mother-in-law went through boxes I am storing at her house, looking for it.
I complained-both online and off- that all I wanted to do was to finish this ONE project.
I've been cross stitching so many projects--see them here and here--but not being able to finish them to completion that I think I needed to finish something-anything-to feel like all was right in my little world.
Then I remembered: I am married to
|He used to have boxes and boxes of wires.|
A man who had not one but two but THREE of the types of adapters I needed.
Once I found it, I was up in running within 10 minutes. You see, last week I had a different bee in my bonnet-it was to use this fabric in order to make a pillowcase to go with the quilt my mom had made my son.
|Fabric I'm usin'|
|Quilt it's going with (I was not an English major).|
He has a nautical theme on his side of the room and I thought the pillowcase would help tie things together nicely.
Mom told me about this really easy YouTube tutorial she had used to make pillowcases and I had to try it out.
The pillowcase couldn't have been easier to put together and it looks great.
I followed the YouTube tutorial (found here) and less than an hour later I had this awesome pillow.
|I love the detail of the accent fabric.|
|And it works perfectly with his bed!|
So easy. Seriously, go make a pillow today. All you need is a piece of fabric that is 24" x WOF, a coordinating piece that is 12" x WOF, and a 2" x WOF for the accent piece.
WOF = width of fabric
Not only did I make the pillow this week but I was able to finish my WELCOME cross stitch.
This is where I was last week:
If you are interested in making this cross stitch it is called "Gardening Welcome" and can be found here. I found it at Hobby Lobby earlier this year. It's been around for awhile-I think Mom made this at least 10-15 years ago.
Next big ticket item to find: the charger for my camera battery; these iPhone photos are horrible!
Until next week!
