Sewing, Episode III

I'm quite glad that I have a stockpile of sewing projects to show off since there's not much happening on the knitting front. Don't get me wrong- I love me a sweater project, but it takes a while before there's really anything to show for all the hard work. (In this case hard work may equate to sitting on the couch knitting sleeves while eating Easter candy and watching Dancing With the Stars*.)

On to the sewing: A couple of throw pillows on one of my futons were starting to look pretty shabby. Recently my mother gave me free reign to pick through a big bag of fabric scraps she scored on Ebay. A couple more scraps from my stash, some green broadcloth, and some manic log-cabining and the pillows got funky new covers.

Krazy Log Kabin

Yes, the strips are supposed to be all askew.

Log Cabin A

And yes, I know the quilting lines are all wavy.

Log Cabin B

I was way inspired by some awesome wood grain-y quilting I saw on a blog. Can't for the life of me remember where.

*Yes. Dancing With the Stars. In general I haaaaate reality shows, but this one is just chock full of goofy charm. It is my guiltiest of guilty pleasures.

I love the funky-ness (if that's a word) and would have them on my couch any day of the week.

Ah- and I'm a DWTS fan there..hehee.
