the grove pillows

After seeing these pillows a few weeks back, I just knew I needed some.
The colors match my living room decor perfectly so I started searching for The Grove fabric.
Once my fabric arrived, I strummed up some pillows.
Just like the inspiration photos, I added invisible zippers, which was, surprisingly, quite easy to do.
 I just used our old couch pillows as the inserts.  I am really enjoying the change!

WIP Wednesday

My oldest daughter started kindergarten a couple weeks ago.
We are doing online school this year so, needless to say, my sewing time has decreased 
since I am busy teaching.

So today I thought I'd just show you a few of my current WIPs (works in progress).
I started cutting fabric for this quilt pattern that I won in a giveaway.
Now I'm waiting for some more neutral fabric to get here so I can finish the cutting and start sewing.

I have also been adding blocks to my scrappy trip around the world quilt.
I plan to slowly add more blocks to this as I have time and accumulate scraps.
I would love to have this be a large picnic-sized quilt.

Maybe some day I'll be able to squeeze in some sewing time to work on these
 plus many more projects I would like to do!
