A Pink House Pillow : :

My goodness, the pictures and the news of the devastation from Hurricane Sandy is just horrifying, it's so heartbreaking! We are a little wet here in Northwestern Pa, our Halloween Trick or Treating was postponed until Saturday, so I'll be sharing the costume I'm making (yes, still!) next week, but more than anything we are so grateful and feel blessed to be safe, and will continue to send our prayers and well wishes to everyone that needs them!

And now, I have this new Pink House Pillow to share. Which feels a bit silly, but I hope it might bring a little cheer today!

Pink House PIllow

This pillow was made recently as a custom etsy order that came through my shop. I was really excited for the chance to make one again! The request was for something very pink, with pops of green. This is what I started with, along with some coordinating scraps.

I love the little details and how a project like this allows you to play. This sweet button garden was really fun!

I finished the pillow back in one of my VERY favorite Art Gallery prints, from Pat Bravo's collection Modernology. This chic pink is the Impressions print in Sachet, still available here at Hawthorne, here at Moona, here at Project Anthologies, and here at the Fat Quarter Shop!

I'm hoping to have several more of these little house pillows, in a variety of colors, in my shop come time for holiday shopping, which is SO soon! Yikes!!

The pillow is the perfect happy piece for everything that went on this week.
Still hearing stories of people lost in the storm, so heart breaking.
Our area was fine, just a tree on my fence, nothing major. The beaches and coastal areas are a mess, and lots of places lost to the sea.

Oh that's wonderful. Your sewing is so CLEAN, it's total eye candy for me. I can't even look at the human stories of Sandy or my heart breaks...I'm haunted by one story in particular that involved kids the same age as mine...awful. Awful. I sure hope everyone gets the help they need in the days to come.
