Do you ever have one of those days where things seem to get under your skin? Well today has been one of those days for me.
I won't go into details because it wouldn't be "nice" of me...but ya know, sometimes I would just love to let loose on a few people! God forgive me for even thinking that way...
And yes, even Sweet Melanie isn't always so sweet. lol
I had finished sewing for a sweet lady in Texas, so my sewing machine was already out. It kept calling my name as I puttered around the house feeling bummed. It's one of my ways to cope along with painting and cleaning, then I can talk to God and ask for help.
So here's what I've done tonight. I had a little skirt the the girls outgrew that was the perfect shade of blue. I held onto it for years just waiting for that perfect way to use it.
See those little ruffles?
Well, I thought they'd look really cute added to this napkin that I made into a pillow a long time ago.
Then I added a different ruffle to this one because I didn't have enough of the skirt left.
I love them both!
They kinda remind me of candy....
Then I remembered a photo I had seen on Pinterest of a Union Jack pillow that I fell in love with. So I went through my fabric and this is what I made.
I'm making some more in pink before I go to bed. I love this!
I think I'll make another one like this for our bed...maybe make it oblong instead of square.
So now I'm off to do more sewing...if you all think about it, say a little prayer for me will ya? God knows I can use them when I get irritated!
