Simple Sewing Sunday...

I did some sewing this morning.  Just some simple sewing (hence the name of this post).  I made a 14x22 inch pillow cover for myself.  Nothing difficult...but extremely satisfying.


You may think that you've seen this pillow before.  And, you are correct. Partially.  Here is what you're thinking of...
This is the pillow I made for Kim, back in July.  It is just a plain pillow cover, with no quilting (per her request).  The one I made for myself today is quilted with horizontal lines and variegated thread. Just because.   

Sister Jill and I went to Pueblo yesterday.  Pueblo is about 30 miles from Canon City and is much larger...about 6 times larger than Canon City.  Lots more shopping there.  Yesterday, we visited Kohl's, Hobby Lobby, and Jack-in-the-Box.  I need wall art for the six foot wall that is in the dining area of this apartment.  I think this is a good start, though I have no clear plan...just will add to this as I see more that I would like to hang there.  

This is going to be a fun week.  I am going to finally meet a longtime friend...we met online on the Wool Snippets message board but have never been together in person.  I am so excited! More on that later.  

Have a great week!

I like the pillow with quilting, gives it a nicer look for a couch pillow. Someday I will make some.
It if fun to redecorate, sometimes I want to start over, but not practical, so change a few things and move things around. I hope you have fun and is it Bren?

Like Lauren, I am hoping you are finally getting to meet Bren. If you do, pass our good wishes on to her and her family.
