~sewing~

I got a new sewing machine.
Well, I actually got it for Christmas 2 years ago,
but just this week got it out to mess around with.
I have been making pillows and lavender sachets like crazy out of my new favorite thing~grain and feed sacks~
{The pillow in the front I made yesterday, the 2 in the back were purchased previously}
I have also made a few of these fabric pennant garland banners.
This one I made entirely out of Cath Kidston fabrics.
I love the colors and patterns in her fabrics!
I got this hammock at a garage sale a couple weeks ago.
It was $5!
Brand new in the box!
It has been a great place to lounge
around in our warm
weather we have been experiencing
from time to time here!

Here is a closeup of one of the pennant garlands.

And another I made out of various Cath Kidston fabrics.

My goal today is to make a seat cushion for that blue bench!
Wish me luck!
xoxo

Great pillows - love the grain sacks too - I'm anxious to see what you do with the bench. So then I'll know what to do to mine. You're an inspiration for sure.

Saw your write up on Dreamy Whites - Congratulations, it's nice to know you a little better.

I need to hang our hammock. I'm having trouble finding a good spot. My FIL got it for us in Mexico at our beach wedding...almost 2 years ago.I love it, I just need to find the perfect spot!

Those garlands are so pretty. I'll have to look for some Cath Kidston fabric.

Beautiful pictures and it makes me homesick...I saw those rodies one of my favorite things about the N.W. I used to take them for granted but funny how they are what I miss the most, well besides my Grandson.

Melaine the pillows are fab. I've been hunting for some grain sacks myself, so far a little too pricey. I especially love the Paris ones. You take such great photos - the hammock one is especially pretty.
Enjoy the weekend.
