What a difference a day makes.................

Last Monday I got to be home ALL day!!  I didn't even walk outside the house!  What a rare treat!  When contemplating what to do, I decided to do a project I hadn't gotten to.  Back in Oct. when I went to Boise to visit my BFF Judy, I purchased enough fabric to make new pillow covers.  I have deep red silk covers on the pillows on the couch and love seat right now.  I wanted something with fall colors in it.  I chose a striped fabric with orange, brown, red and green - perfect!  My intent was to make them to go along with my fall decor' - that didn't happen. At first I thought I might as well wait because I knew I would be putting Christmas decor' up this week - but I needed to get them done sometime!

I dug out the ol' faithful sewing machine, turned on the Christmas music and began.

 Here is the before...............................
Here is the after..............................
My neighbor came over and showed me fabric she had that she wanted to make pillows with, so we quick made 4 for her................her fabric was a brown floral and looked awesome with my stripes - but I let her keep them!
I just made them envelope style so I could change them easily!  That's 8 pillow covers in one day! Oh, and I made a small runner for my table with the leftovers!
