Week 7

This week was spent trying to get things cleaned up and claimed with the insurance company as a result of the ice storm a few weeks ago. So I only worked on one project this week. I made two pillows using the John Deere fabric my husband contributed to my stash a few weeks ago.

We gave them to a waitress at the restaurant we stop at almost daily to have coffee. She is a John Deere collector, only 21, out on her own and she takes care of her sister's two children. The children are 9 and 4. She is always happy go lucky and never complains about taking care of the children. Here is a picture of the pillows. They reverse to show the other season.
So this week I only used 1 yard of fabric.
Fabric used this week: 1 yards
Fabric bought this week: 0 yard

Fabric used this YTD 22 5/8yards
Fabric bought YTD 1 yard

Stash busted YTD 21 5/8 yards

those are so cute. I love John Deere stuff too, reminds me of my dad and the farm I grew up on. What a nice gift for this young lady. You are doing wonderful with busting your stash. Keep it up.

How nice of you to make the pillows. They are really beautiful. The colours are very vivid and I like that they reverse to show the seasons.
