twice.

I was able to pick up a needle and thread only TWICE this past week.
Pretty.
I worked on this mainly in the air on my way home.
and Practical.
I received some dimensions for this sofa from my
daughter's roommate last month.
I sewed up the covers for those big cushions here in
California...then....
I slipped them on Sunday and handstitched the openings
in Georgia.
The girls were so happy to have the ugly cushions
covered up! Even if these didn't fit perfectly snug.


I also found out I have a sewing-soulmate
in one of my daughter's roommates.
Aren't these cute???


One for each of the girls in the apartment.
This roommate also makes homemade bread!!
I sure am missing out on that this year!!
Can I go back in time and become a college student again??
Please???

  3. Cute pillows. And your bubble piece was great before, but now with the stitching, it's even better! I love all that texture.

  4. Well, I guess twice is better than none at all. Those are really cute pillows that your daughter's roommate made. It's tough to craft while in college, but I do remember making an occasional loaf of bread myself in those days.
