Okay-so, 1st time I went, I got this mirror, and the tapestry below.
2nd time -last Thursday- I was outbid on EVerything but a bench by some antique store and consignment shop owners.
(insert bottom lip here)
*Well, I see in this week’s uploaded pictures ~there’s 1 nice dresser I’d like to try for, some cool silver, and tOOls!
So~ y’ think I’ll have even half a chance~?
Well -the bench- I’ve decided I will sell, but just as it is.
The tapestry–is anOTHer story!
I took it off the dowel it was affixed to, threw it in the washer—then cut it up.
Yes, I cut it up~to make 3 pillows.
I used a neutral damask for the back side, and goose-down pillow inserts!
I kept it totally simple, no frills, square pillows–I think there’s enough pattern already going on! I used the sewing machine for three sides, and hand sewed a blind hem to close them up.
All while I listened/watched “Becoming Jane,” about the life of Jane Austen. I’ve already told you how I love listening to the vocabulary, dialog, and music ~and the stories, of course~ while I’m sewing!
While I was in the pillow-making mood, I cut up a couple more of those sweaters I’m always collecting!
I love using button up sweaters for how easy it is to insert a “pillow.”
I’m sharing this project with these linky parties~
