take it further: porch pillows

Day 4...fix the porch pillows



Last fall I blatantly copied somebody's porch pillows in blog world. If they were yours, I thank you for the idea. I used one of my husband's old shirts from the 80's, that crazy blue plaid, and some corduroy I had from when my kids were young.  They're OK, but too plain.

So this morning I sat on the swing in the backyard and started taking it further.

Syncing with the energy of the growing moon (75% full today) feels nice.

Its a 3/4s moon here too!...........I wonder if those dark marks and 'craters' we can see on the moons surface.are really patchwork pieces?!
Great cushions........fun snazzy patches!

Thank you, Trish! It was a fun morning project before the day really kicked in. Nothing's been stitched, mind you, but it's a little further along....

Deanna, yes, so great to use up all those cotton scraps. I think the whole top of this first pillow will be nearly covered!
