So I made a pillow out of some of the scraps.
Inspiration for this pillow came from these little pretties. I actually found an etsy shop that sells embroidered Sari material (kantha style), and have ordered a stole which looks to be made up of about 4 or 5 different colored pieces. I am hoping to use it to make pillows like the ones pictured in the West Elm link.
In the meantime, I started piecing some hexagons using a 3.5 inch template. Yep. I like it.
I have be seeing Christmas makes out there in blog land and on Pinterest lately. Is it time to go there? I suppose we need to get started soon. It's hard to wrap my head around the holidays when the weather forecast here calls for 100 degree heat and boob sweat of epic proportions.
If anyone wants me I will be in the house with the air conditioner thermostat set somewhere between Iceland and the North Pole.
