Circle pillows are IN the window now!

 I brought the circle pillows to school and put them in the window....it really is a big window! They are about 25" and seven of them don't cover it. They almost do if I don't bunch them up, but they look nicer piled up a bit. Guess I need to make about 3 or 4 more if I want them all the way across!
 I have some of the fabrics from the Circle and Spin pillows left, so might be able to piece something together for the fronts. Or I might go see if I can get some of the small, circular fabric I used on most of the backs and just make some pillows out of it.

It looks great with the rest of the pillows.

I'm still not used to the beauty surrounding me every day....but I do love it!
 I haven't taken any pictures of the mess I had left to clean up...unpacked boxes etc...but I can walk through now behind my desk, so it is getting better. I had put all of it behind the desk to keep it out of the way of the kids.....I have been open to kids all week, so have been working on it gradually.
Conrad looks so big now when he stretches out on the floor....like he's posing for me!

I have worked on the flying geese blocks and quilt some more this week, am figuring out the borders now. My stitching group meets tonight, so that will be fun. I always love to see them and what they are working on. I need to cover some pillows for my daughter, Rachel, so I might work on those tonight, if I feel ambitious. Sometimes we do actually sew!
