“It’s Four Seams and You’re Done, Mom”

Meghan said I should make a pillow out of some gorgeous fabric. I cringed, “I hate sewing, and there are a lot of pillows for sale most everywhere. I most certainly do not need to make any”

“Mom, it’s four seams and you’re done. This is beautiful fabric”

“I’ll think (long and hard) about it.”

We were out with Aileen and the point of the trip was to get fabric for Aileen’s trip to Vietnam. We were most definitely not out for me to find a sewing project, most definitely.

I bought the fabric.

I love the shimmery silver on the dull linen.

Adding a zipper to the top means I can wash the cover if I need to.

I discovered that it is best to first sew the zipper on and then sew up the remaining three sides.

I made two in no time flat! You will notice the "rambling beige" that my house is becoming. "

Meghan promises to come take some photos of my slowly redecorated house and make it look way better than it does in real life. See that jute rug? I had Andrew sweating bullets and as a result me too over switching out my oriental rug for this more casual look; what in the world was I thinking!?  He got maybe a tad grumpy about hauling them around knowing he would hate the result. Really, why would you pitch an oriental rug in favor of jute?

Later in the day he walked by the living room and said, “I really like the way that new rug looks.”

“Do you now?”
