More About Pillows

I have switched around the throw pillows in our living room about three or four times since we moved in back in August. I am the most fickle person when it comes to throw pillows.

After trying every possible throw pillow combination known to man, I FINALLY decided it was time to make my own.

Here is the most recent "before" throw pillow combo:
Definitely didn't fit the vibe that I'm going for in my house at all.

I made a throw pillow once in middle school, but it was a whale pillow so I don't know if that counts. I decided to make my new pillows have removable covers... you know... in case I change my mind again in a couple of weeks.

I'm too stubborn to use patterns so I always just sort of wing my sewing projects. This time I got extremely lucky and didn't even have to use a seam ripper once! I am so happy with the way the pillows turned out. They are exactly what I have been imagining. I hope they live a long and happy life in our living room.

I must now go and continue counting down to 3:00. Today I'm teaching 5th grade math, which requires a lot more brain cells than 2nd-4th grade math. I will need all of the patience that lies within me... which is not much.

Hope everyone has a very happy, restful, LONG Thanksgiving break!
