Umm...I only noticed how much dust was on the arm of the rocking chair as I edited this photo
...had to laugh at my mad housekeeping skillz!
If you've stopped by my blog before, you may have already seen this pillow from my etsy shop recently but I'm sharing it once again (apologies for the repeat!) so that I can have a chance to participate in the Blogger's Pillow Party hosted by Rachel of Stitched in Color. There's a pretty fab prize this month which I can't resist, I finally have a real live pillow to post (ahem...as opposed to the ones that are just ideas in my head and fabric on the shelf), and I've been enjoying all the other entries so much, especially those by Maureen—I figured, why the heck not now that there's just one day left to enter?! Yup, that's me...always on top of things!
This pillow was inspired by my love of crazy colors and wanting to find a way to use up some of my treasured scraps of Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks fabric line. I find that they, or any really colorful or vibrantly patterned fabric, really take pride of place when they are contrasted by neutrals and simplicity soooo after a few sketches, I decided to try my hand at a very simple yo-yo rosette pillow with just a few framed in the center by an unbleached linen. The yo-yos are all done by hand of course and the body of the pillow is machine sewn with an envelope closure.
Fingers crossed! In the meantime, you and I can do a bit of blog hopping to see all the other entries and their bloggy creators here (just scroll down to see photos of entries for each month and click to find out more about each one).
