Phills lost, but the pillow won

The Phillies lost. Lee murdered us with all his home runs. This season isn’t starting well at all.

Some good did come of it. I finished my pillow while watching the game. And here it is.

(Yes, I stole my husband’s camera!)

Woo! The pillow is posted on my Etsy store. The pattern still needs some fine tuning. It won’t be posted until Monday. As a reward for all my hard work, I get to dedicate myself to all my painting projects this weekend. I have a dresser drawer to finish painting white. It’s the last one. Then, there is the frame around a mirror that needs to be painted dark brown. Lastly, I’m on to practice my stenciling skills. Having never stenciled before, I imagine I’ll be plain awful.

Pillow lining

The pillow lining is making its way through the wash right now. I tested it in the knitted pillow and it fits like a charm! Since I’m having leftovers for dinner, I should have the pillow completed tonight. I’m always looking for a mindless project to do while the baseball games are on. (Go Phillies!) This should fit the bill.

The only trouble is – my camera is on the fritz. I managed to take a pic of the pillow lining as you can see, but I lost the rest of the pics I took earlier today. I really wanted to post a pic of my golden retriever. He is so handsome. =) I hope to have better luck later. If not, I’m stealing my husband’s camera from him.

Pillow Lining

I even made some progress with my hedge today. I’ll estimate that it is 75% completed. My speedy progress is mostly attributed to my neighbor’s kindness. He let me borrow his heavy-duty pruners. It makes mean work of the hedge! I think I have to get me a pair. I would hate to be the neighbor that never returns the tools. What is that show where they chatted about that problem? Tool Shop? I can’t remember.
