A little gift…

I have an odd situation for my job.  My “home” campus is 4 hours directly north and I am located at a different college.  It’s crazy how one gets used to phone and email for communication and not actually walking down to ones office for questions.  I have incredible students and I wouldn’t change my “situation” for anything in the world.  But there is someone very special at the “home” campus who continuously answers any and all crazy questions I can come up with.  I wanted to do something special for her.  I also realized I had ordered 5 hand-sanitizers from Bath and Body Works…apparently I wanted to REALLY get prepared for cold/flu season on campus, haha!

Fall Table Runner…

Fall is in full swing and I finally have had time to have some me time and get my creative juices flowing!

I was at JoAnn’s Fabric store and was looking for fabric for the dog pillow I finished last week and came across a bundle of fall fat quarters and just couldn’t resist.  Further while there I found a pattern by Nancy Dill called “Stack Four Table Runner” which only required 4 fat quarters.  I was really excited to try this pattern out.

Quoteable Pillows

Joey asked me recently as I was down stairs putting my latest project together, “Harm, haven’t you made enough pillows?”  I looked at him bewildered and said, “Ha, you can never have enough pillows!”  It’s still freezing in No. Dak. lately and there isn’t anything we can do outside yet.  We can’t mow the lawn, can’t plant, can’t weed, can’t play in the sun…we are limited to the indoors still.  So of course, I keep not only a clean house, but have to do something while hanging around so my go-to is always cross-stitching.

Math and Pillows!

While taking a trip to the local fabric store in Valley City, I found this adorable math fabric by Moda!  I was thrilled to say the least!!!  Not sure what I wanted to do with it, I decided on the black and white design and purchased one yard.  I sat on the fabric for at least 3 months before I decided to make some pillows I’d use in my office.  I made 2- 14″ square throw pillows that I will use in my office on the chairs my students sit in.

   
Basic pillow formation here.  It’s an envelope style in the back.  Took about an hour from start to finish.  I have just a little leftover fabric so I may spruce up a couple hand towels for use at home with the leftover fabric. 

Just look at this fabric!!!  Completely “needing” out right now!     

Details…

Although the bedroom is quickly wrapping up…just a little more to do.  I wanted to share the curtains I had made.

The color to the bedroom didn’t turn out exactly as I was hoping…I’m slightly disappointed by it, but if all else fails, I can paint over it in a couple years anyways.  I am slightly kicking myself, I think I should have went with a more neutral color.

But none-the-less it’s clearly better than the grey that was there before it.
