Hey there....I have been quiet for a bit but busy...
Last week I went to Joanne's Fabrics and saw that they were getting rid of those upholstery remnants that served once as samples... 2 bucks each for a 12x12 square so I spent about $20 and got random patterns...most of them plain but here are some of the patterned one's 

I went home and printed out images from the Graphics Fairy
Everything on the site is pretty organized but I know it can be overwhelming. I personally googled graphics fairy reverse image and got the links from there very quickly

Once I printed it on Iron-On paper I trimmed it and ironed it on according to directions.
I dug out my sewing machine which I have not touched it since 12 years ago. At that time I was s hot and heavy into quilting...Oh boy...I think the sewing machine missed me terribly...
Since the squares were 12X12 already I just sewed 2 together and made sure that I had a pattern on the back because these are all samples and none in the same color

Here is the back of one of the pillows I made, and below is the rest of the ones I made...I spread them around the house and they all look great!

I went on google and googled Iceland/Images and this picture popped up. I am not sure if this is Copyright or not but I did reverse it and print it out. I noticed afterwards that the geography isn't quite correct but it's minor at this point so as long as I know what it looks like and it's for my own pleasure then it shouldn't matter...

so that's what I've been up to lately. I am also packing for a trip to Iceland. I am looking forward to that. My sister recently moved to another apartment so I was needed to come over for some apartment therapy...After my Iceland stay I am meeting up with Hubby in Ireland for some Work/R&R for a week... Should be fun!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday Peeps

  3. Ótrúlega flottir púðar, mér finnst einmitt oft erfitt að finna fallega púða sem kosta ekki hönd og fót...þessir eru æði! :-)
