My sister, Emily, and I have been taking a photo class at Bangor photo the last couple of months. It has been very informative and helpful, including inspiring me to get to know not only my camera better but also photoshop (elements 9).
Grif was hanging out by the fire this morning, a favorite place of his....
Believe it or not, I had never made a throw pillow cover before this past week. Something I had wanted to try out and finally got a chance too. My favorite ended up being the simplest (and hardest to see in this collage) but is in the upper left photo - it is in a single fabric with an edge. The others match quilts we have around the house. I think these will come in handy with a new baby to cuddle with!
Oh, the guide/pattern I used is here: http://sew4home.com/projects/pillows-cushions/343-patio-party-sunny-toss-pillows
