A window seat without pillows!

After getting the cushion done for my window seat in the kitchen Christmas arrived and I didn't have time to get my pillows made.
So yesterday while hubby and I went out for the day to a movie ( Leap Year) very fun movie and lunch we stopped by Joann's fabric store and they had pillow forms on sale for 50% off. We bought five and I have the fabric from the chair recovery so today is going to start out making the pillows. I got loads of idea's from the Monday pillow showing on several of the blogs I read.
I just wanted to show a few things that came in the mail this week! First to come was the fabric I needed for my quilt. The green on top is the fabric that I already had for my sashing and the green on bottom is what came. No they don't match to my surprise but that's OK the bottom green is in some of my blocks so I will still be using it!
Sorry for the upside down picture but I also received this wonderful spindle and how to book from Wanda Jenkins at Jenkins spindles. I've been craving one for over a year and my Mother-n-law gave us money for Christmas and hubby said for me to use it on myself so this is what I purchased.
Its called the Turkish Delight and it just so cute! It is also hand made by Wanda's hubby Ed! He has lots of wood to choose from and mine is out of Blood wood.
And the last thing is my DVD and wool for my loom! I'm going to weave hubby and I each a scarf!

I'm off to work on the pillows and I'm hopping I don't freeze today its really cold. Stay warm everyone and have a wonderful day.



  1. It looks like you have your work cut out for you in more ways than one. It should be lots of fun though. Your spindle is adorable. I can't wait to see how you like it. I tried once, to spin using a hand spindle and I didn't do well at all. I'm sure if I tried often enough I would eventually "get it." But I am never a patient person.

    I like the colors for your scarves. They should be gorgeous when they are finished. And the materials for your pillows is great too. Wow, I'm going to have to get back here every day to see what all is being done. :)

  2. I love it all. You have an awesome sense of color and I love the pillow seat. Can't wait to the pillows and the scarfs

  3. You're one busy girl! I love the fabric.

  4. Good shopping!!! Your post got better and better because it ended up with weaving!! I've never worked with soysilk, but it's supposed to be wonderful!

    Looking forward to following the progress of all these projects!

    Have fun!

  5. I love the window seat!!! The fabrics that you choose are preeety. It's going to look awesome.
    I checked out the wreath on Cherry Hill.. Think I might try it too. Have fun! Thanks for the idea.

  6. Hi Julie!

    You've got so much to keep you busy! I can't wait to see your pillows and what you do with that spindle.
