Last night I was hanging out at my friends house while our kiddos played together. We've been doing that a lot lately. It helps having a friend whose husband is deployed also. Our kids get along great and we have enjoying sharing dinners. Almost makes it worth making dinner! I think any military wife would tell you that while hubby is deployed, the menu definately changes!!
While I was there, I started paging through her Pottery Barn Catalog. Have you seen the latest one? I'm loving it - - it is speaking to me. All of it except the prices! You know me, I am a thirfty girl - - I refuse to pay full price for most anything.
So, as I was paging through and gathering lots of ideas, I got to pages 56 and 57.
Be still my heart.
I am in love with those pillows!
But this one in particular made my heart swoon.

Are you kidding me? Really?
I can definately make one of those - - MUCH cheaper!
So, there in lies project #8
I made up the graphics in a power point presentation, and then, used my embroidery program to program it into something my machine could embroider. I embroidered it onto a natural linen. While it isn't exactly the same, I think it turned out pretty good.
FREE since I just used what I had at home. I guess if you wanted to calculate the cost, since I did buy the fabric at some point, it would be 1/3 yard of fabric @ $3.00/yard so $1 plus the zipper, another $3.
And here it is on a sneak peak of a project I am currently working on - - - just need the rest of my fabric to arrive in the mail and I will be done!
