I'm taking a break from those needlepoint states for a few days because my wrists are literally hurting. I'm feeling a second wind of motivation to conquer that looming pile though. My parents are coming this week so I had to get my sewing station organized in the guest bedroom.
It was literally strewn across the entire room until this photo.
Eventually I want to paint this room another color since it is the same as the upstairs. Pink! But that is not high on my home decor list right now.
Another motivation is a trip to Pennsylvania for the fourth of July. There are lots of things I want to finish before we go. Mostly some new clothes (skirts) for me. And last night I had some killer ideas for other Perfect Dresses for L. They are going to be so cute!!!
This is what I worked on yesterday. and I am so happy with how it turned out. Love, love, love it!
18" red felt pillow
Total cost = less than $4
(copied idea from here. original Pier1 pillow was $30 and much smaller)
