Another completed project that I didn't keep.  Seems to be the way it is for most of the creative people I know.

Have an idea?  Maybe.  Ok, sure.  How do I want to do it?  Not sure, but I'll  figure it out.  Hmmm...Maybe this isn't working.  Ok, let's try it this way.  Finally, ta da!  Sucess.

And so it went for this 28 x 14 pillow cover and bolster.  Strip piecing?  Check.   Envelope pillow closure?  Check.  Find, choose, enlarge, trace, and cut out font?  Check.  Raw edge applique?  Leave that box blank, but it didn't seem too daunting on the difficulty scale.  Use Wonder-Under?  There's a first time for everything.

Ta Da!

This is another item I made for our school's annual fundraiser this past weekend.  Our theme was Sun, Sea, and Sky.  Obviously, I chose Sea.

I love how some of my current favorite fabric lines and older stash pieces coordinate so well together!  There's a little bit of Salt Water by Tula Pink, some Seascapes by Deb Strain for Moda, a couple of Art Gallery's Oval Elements, two pieces of Sketch from Timeless Treasures, another Moda piece - Lovely - by Sandy Gervais, and even a small piece of Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets (it's on the end in cream, so you don't see it in this picture).  

RELAX is the Text print from Peter Pan, and the selvage lists it like this:  "Disney Elements copyright Disney.  Circa 2009 Thomas Kinkade used under license by David Textiles, Inc."  Really, a text that reads "Second star to the right..." was just too perfect for a pillow entreating you to relax.

Now I'm off to make one of these for me.  I like it that much.
