Remember this? From about a week and a half ago. or so.
It was inspired by this Chevron Patchwork Lampshade. I LOVE patchwork anything and am really drawn to these colors lately. Before the lampshade was even shipped, I put this block together. I knew it would become a pillow, no surprise there, right?
And, I knew that block would become a butterfly with some sketch stitch details.
My plan was to make a few more scrappy patchwork pin cushions out of what remained from the block. I started piecing my scraps together, and instead -- I ended up with yet another pillow!
A surprise pillow! That I actually like better than the butterfly pillow I was envisioning all along. I love when that happens, don't you?
For the moment, for picture purposes and until I find a new base for it, I made a temporary spot for my new shade. Do you remember this chair? It was kinda-sorta supposed to be mine, but my cat sleeps in it all day, every day! At least now I have my new lampshade -- please tell me you see the likeness to my pillow design?
And, two new pillows!
Although, I think these are actually headed to my etsy ((smile)) and I can't decide if they are Blogger Pillow Party worthy? I really want to submit something special this month -- since it is the last month and I have had a pillow chosen for the final nine every other month and have yet to win. Oh, and have you seen the prize? Check it out and then you'll really understand why I am stressing over choosing the right pillow. LOL
Let me know what you think! o.k. And, be honest! I have a couple more weeks to make something else.
