I think I’ve realized that when I become stressed, I feel a strong need to makes something. This has proven disasterous for the state of the living room, but I could have worse habits, right? Last night’s project — another pillow. And before it appears that my sewing skills have vastly improved, I should clarify that this one is made from three vintage quilt blocks bought from Sticks and Stones for $1 each. So, the stright, tiny pieces were done by someone else. The simple, crooked stuff was done by yours truly. 🙂

For Christmas, an aunt game me a bag full of old doilies that had been brought out of the family house in Connecticut. They’re now slowly making a comeback on the front of linen pillow covers. And I’m slowly making sense of the sewing machine. And there was no blood shed during the making of this cover. That’s a first for me.
