I have been waiting
for a l-o-n-g time
to show you this.
Remember this post
about being afraid to try new things?
Ever since I saw these pocket pillows a few years back
I have really, really wanted to make some
but I have put it off
and put it off
Well, one day last January
my family was gone for the day
is the day.
I spent the entire day going through linens
deciding what to use where.
(Have I ever told you how much trouble I have deciding?)
By the end of the day I was here:
That was the first hard step.
They sat again for a few months
waiting to be finished.
I couldn't put it off any more.
It was time for the photo shoot of my bedroom
and this pillow was going to be part of my bed shot.
Another day was spent embellishing with all of the pretties.
Even though I was afraid to try
I had so much fun once I got going.
I still have so much to learn
but there is so much satisfaction in trying.
I love them
they use all
of my favorite elements:
off white linen
snippets of vintage lace
I enjoyed adding romance.
I am so glad I tried!
on to something else new...
