Better focused in 2018

2017 has brought many ups and downs and my sewing and blogging have had to take a back seat to things.  I am determined to handle life’s little roller coaster better.  Why start in January?  I need to get a jump start on it.  So it starts this week, today.   I am trying to make a list of what I want to do in a week and get it done.  After I write this blog the next thing on today’s list is my sewing room window.  It is driving me crazy with the dust on the outside.

Yesterday brought some sewing time and I started on projects for craft fairs.  The first item was a bed pillow.  This makes a great gift and took only about 20 minutes.  That is from picking out the fabric to finishing it.  One little issue I didn’t make sure I had a pillow form that fit it.  Shame on me.  IMG_20171204_091935692IMG_20171204_092025704Great as an emergency gift.  Ever need one of those in a hurry?  Little pocket for phone or anything.  Bigger pocket for your book or sketch pad to have handy and organized in bed or just on the sofa.

Today I will start out making more and these I make 16 inch square.  The back is in 2 pieces and closes with velcro.IMG_20171205_084637803IMG_20171205_084642909 This afternoon brings playtime with the granddaughter.  Maybe cookie baking….sounds good to me.

What are you doing today?  Tomorrow?

be safe.

  1. Lovely pillow! Yes, not all years are easy. I’m sure a head start on 2018 will make, what’s left of 2017, into a better year for you…and your sewing projects, at least. I am supposed to make a pillow for a friend for Christmas, this looks like the ideal closure. Thanks for the great idea! Great post!
