If you have been a reader of my blog for a while, you will know that I get on jags....I make things that I like until I get sick of it. This last two months it has been pillows. I want to make enough for all seasons for my dinning room and living room.
Isn't it true that when a football player fumbles a ball he does everything in his power to get the ball back?
Well.....yesterday I started making this small top for a pillow. I am actually not sure I like it but that is another post for another time.
So..... I measured my pillow. I cut my border and this is what I got. Not too shabby.
Then I went to see if the top will fit the pillow and my gosh was ever tooo big? So.....I recalculated.
and by George if I didn't cut one side wider than the other but it works.
So here is my pillow. I would say it is a jumble of a mess but once again IT WORKS!!
No matter how hard you try to recover yourself you still end up on the short end (sometimes)....
But.....why am I telling you this? To complain?
Because I am frustrated?
Because no matter how much we think we know and how much we sew, we still tend to fumble and that is ok......because "IT ALL WORKS OUT" or just throw it in the trash...HA!!!
I used Island Batik scraps which reminds me, Today is Freemotion by the River's blog hop day for Island Batik, she made two fabulous pillows....hope you go over there.
