The 16 x 16 pillow form arrived so I could stuff the pillow cover I made a while back and sew it together. Unfortunately, I messed up the joining in the corners of the squares on the front, but it doesn’t look too bad. You probably wouldn’t even notice if I didn’t tell you AND if you didn’t see Jacquie’s perfect one. THIS is the pattern I used for the front, and the back is just a granny square. I covered the pillow with red material before I sewed the cover on. I’m not showing you the buttons because they don’t look good. Next time I’ll know how to do it better and will use less of them. I think Jacquie’s instructions for making the button holes were for smaller buttons than what I used. Despite all its flaws, I love my red & white pillow!
I took my sister to the airport this morning. :( My aunt goes home tomorrow, and then things should get back to normal around here. My mom’s birthday party went great and we all had a good time.
I’m off to sit on the couch and do nothing until The Captain leaves for work in a few minutes. Then I may take a nap or just sit on the couch some more. I enjoyed seeing everyone, but I miss my solitary time (which includes my dogs, of course). Poor things have been left alone way more than they’re used to.
