Thank Goodness it’s Finished Friday (on Saturday)

I finished this yesterday and took the photos and everything.  I intended to write this post last night, but I got into my bed with both girls to read stories and then, I just didn’t feel motivated to get out again.  This is what I get for staying up past midnight the night before that.  Perhaps I need to think about some more regular sleep habits?  Am I the only who does this?

Anyway, when we bought our living room furniture four years ago, it came with these 4 pillows made of the same fabric as the couch.  I always intended to make covers for them, but then never got around to it.

So, yesterday, I pulled out this warm colors dresden that I had made some time ago, which held a place on The List (the to do list) for several weeks, but then I removed it from The List because I just didn’t know what I wanted to do with it.

Well, turns out, it wanted to become a pillow.

While I like the design of this pillow, I’m not really sure I love the color scheme.  However, I made it to match the colors in my living room, which come from a rug we have that is sort of a wine red, navy, green, and natural.   The real issue, I think, is I need to redo my entire living room: repaint, and a new rug that I love, but I don’t think my husband would be okay with that right now!  Ha!

I do love the dresden itself, though!

(Anybody want to come and repaint my living room?  Then I’ll make a new pillow to match!)

Edit:  I made this pillow a buddy, and now I actually like it a little more.  Just needed some “balance,” I guess?

    We bought our couch five years ago and it only just this week occured to me to make pillows to replace the matchy ones it came with! I am so excited about mixing patterns and jazzing up the whole sofa. I’m hoping it will feel like a whole new couch.

    No, you’re not the only one burning the midnight oil. That’s the only way I can get any sewing done. You know the life with two little ones!
    Nice Dresden! Love the reds, oranges, and yellows you chose.
    Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!
    BTW, thank you for your comment on my blog. I tried to answer you, but couldn’t figure out a way to contact you. The xantus is the bird, a type of hummingbird. Who would have thought I’d be learning something from my daughter’s quilt?!?
