Haleigh finished her pillow about two weeks ago.
She picked the center out of my stash, and than found the blue/white polka dot fabric to go with it.
I think she did a wonderful job, and she did it all by herself.
The inner pillow is made with batting pieces that Opa helped tear up so Haleigh could use them as stuffing.

I had a busy Sunday, since the weather was nice I decided to spray paint and seal my new yard art and wooden box for the patio set cushions.
I also gave my swing a new coat of sealer, so now I am ready for the outdoor season. The flower containers are old propane gas tanks cut apart by a friend of mine, he also made the wooden box for me.
The butterfly's are made by my friend also.

For my birthday last month I treated myself to a tuffet class. I have always wanted to do one for my living room, and when I heard about the class I signed up for it as my birthday present to myself.
This is the one I made, to match my couch quilt. The pattern is by Myra Mitchell. It took a lot of prep work and a 6 hour class, but I love my new tuffet. I even put some decorative stitching on the fabric.
The legs I had from a wooden chest we bought in the Azores that I never used for the chest.
Here is her link :
for a free pattern for the square tuffet.
This one was made by another gal named Tina, I love the greens and browns.

Poppies are my favorite flower. From the huge red one like this ( the flower is dessert plate size ) to the small wild ones in the fields back in Germany, or the orange wild ones that grow from Alaska all the way to California and pretty sure beyond. I even bought a Poppy plant, just so the slugs could have a feast. I re potted the lonely stem with no leaves in hopes it will grow back.
And sorry, but I realized today was not Sunday.
