Bear throw pillows (second down!)

2am: finished! Fronts ...

Second redecorating project done! These throw pillow covers will replace the ones I have now – or not replace so much as be a second set so I can limit the damage to the pretty satin ones on my bed now that are starting to look a bit worn. These fabrics all came from the M is for Make sale section and happened to look lovely together and match my bedroom color scheme perfectly. Totally not planned, but nice timing. I raided my stash for the backs.

... and backs. Now it's bedtime.

Sorry not to have better than Instagram photos to share (by the way, are you an Instagram user? Come find me over there as ‘gotthebutton’!) but I finished these at 2am last night and the weather today hasn’t been great for photos. I mean, lookit!


It doesn’t make for great photo lighting, but goodness, how I love the snow so much. Sigh. In the meantime, all the painting is now done, my new bed is together and in place (there’s more progress Instagram photos in my Flickr photostream if you’d like to see some peeks as I go), and I love how it’s coming together! Now it’s mostly about putting it all back in place, hanging things back on the wall, that sort of thing. But that’s enough for today – I am totally exhausted and ready for a quiet night watching the snow fall.

First bedroom project done! These mismatched-matching pillowcases will go wait with my new sheets (and new pajamas for the first night it’s all done – yes, I am totally dorky) for my bedroom to finally all come together. I did the blanket stitch as prep for a crocheted edging, but I ended up liking it on its own. My gut said to stop there and leave them simple, so who am I to argue?!

I’ve also cut squares for my little Denyse Schmidt Scottie Dog but haven’t laid them out or starting sewing yet, and finally – after literally weeks of browsing Flickr and Pinterest for inspiration – decided on how I want to do the throw pillow covers. I’m not as far as I wanted to be on my bedroom-to-make list by this end of the week, but that’s ok, I’m trying to make sure I don’t get rushy about it — it’s supposed to be fun, after all!
