Sewing Sunday

I inherited my grandmother's sewing machine last year and promised myself I would learn how to use it to enhance my home and wardrobe. My mom made my prom dress, my college graduation dress and countless halloween costumes and somehow I never learned how to sew. So today I spent a quiet sunday practicing making some pillows.

This is Coco, my next project (to make the needlepoint elk into a pillow), and one of today's pillows. I was thrilled when I found the elk in a thrift store in oregon for $10. It reminds me of all the high end (overpriced?) needlepoint happening now.
