Well, you know me and Squirrels. How they run my life, don’t let me rest, I fill my days chasing them and never seeming to get them to leave me alone? I guess they are now invading my DrEAMs!!, and my jewelry!!!
I went to Joann Fabrics for thread, buy 4 get 4 Free on Gutterman!, and came away with some jewelry findings to make a necklace. I have NO. IDEA. HOW. THIS. HAPPENED! OK, so maybe I got sucked into the jewelry department. And also the box department.
OK, back to the story. When I went to work on Granny Peacock, I realized I didn’t have a back made. So I had to rummage around, and remember that I started an HST project, and then I remembered the other project I had saved a photo of long ago, and oohhh, that Pillow Kit I bought while on our bus trip to AQS has been in my pile to do, and, and, and….So I caved, and in between piecing the back for Granny Peacock I started 2 projects and continued working on the HSTs. But not the Fox and Geese which has been on my list for a few weeks now!! Those D&!%mn DrEAMy Squirrels!
They started like this:
Cutting out squares and ironing on pre-cuts
Piecing and Appliqué
Linings Frankenstein-ed together
A lot of Frankenstein-ing of stuff
Appliqué and quilting
Pretty zippered backs quilted, Simple was the plan
Et voilà, 2 new Christmas pillows to decorate my home
Bonus is the Holly & Berry pillow compliments the Star pillow I made last year
