Trying to make a comeback.
This really isn't that big of a comeback, and I feel kind of lame posting an unfinished project, but I'm moving slowly these days. I've been adjusting back to life in CA, and since being home I've fallen asleep for the night on the couch two times.
Today was Sunday, so after church I made a nice lunch and then just let everyone do whatever they wanted to do. I, of course, ended up in my sewing room. I work with Young Women at church and for a graduation gift for our Senior girls I'm making them personalized pillows. I had them help me select their fabric, hence the Alexander Henry Regent Skull fabric.
I like this rectangle pillow, so I copied the style. This pillow is for a married couple though, and I can't decide if the teenager girl pillows need a little something more. Do I add a fabric flower??
The purple flower is just an example. I'd make a flower that coordinates with the colors of each of the pillow, and I'm not sure I'd do felt. I'm just not sure. The Italian gave me Tim Gunn advice - keep it simple, have an editing eye - NO flower. He says it's too much.
I'm hoping I can find the answer to my big dilemma in my dreams tonight. Or maybe someone out there reading this has some great insight for me???
