Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Sew Crafty Friday

Back in the saddle again!
After many nights of feeling sick to my stomach about dropping my sewing machine, my WONDERFUL 'mom' let me borrow her sewing machine.
I've had this idea to make some slip covers for our living room pillows, but just haven't taken the time to put it into action--- that is until yesterday!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that I can now take off these 'pillow cases' and wash them!!!
You won't believe this. I got the fabric at Walmart for just $1. It's a heavy upholstery fabric, but in a fabulous neutral shade. BARGAIN!
It only took me 15 minutes to sew, but the buttons took just as long to sew on (if not longer since I had so many little curious eyes and fingers "helping").
Kayla and I laughed and laughed as I was trying to stuff the pillow into the case. She thought it was the funniest thing she'd ever seen Mommy do. Krista joined in all the laughter even though she didn't have a clue what she was supposed to be laughing at! I got to laughing so hard it took twice the effort to get it in.
It seems like such an odd thing to build a memory on. This pillow makes me give a little chuckle every time I pick it up when I think of the fun I had with the girls--- and now it's not just an ordinary pillow filled with stuffing, but an extraordinary pillow filled with the giggles of the Bibby Girls.
I can hardly wait to make the other one and see what we will fill it with.

Thanks Rebecca, for giving me a challenge ;-).

Way to go Jean. That machine has been used more by you since I purchased it than I ever will. Keep up the good work and the giggly memories.
