The Reading Pillow is Done!
Here is that "wip" I started to tell you about before. I used Meg's pattern and in the process, I learned how to do piping around the edge and to use my "zipper foot" on my sewing machine!! I am pretty much self-taught with the sewing, so there was a couple seam-ripping incidents. I always feel a huge sense of accomplishment when I complete little things like this though and I can't wait to start another project! I am beginning to think that actually having someone teach me something would be a lot less painful than deciphering new terms and figuring out how to use new materials. The mental challenge of reading patterns is comparable to other people's love of mountain climbing, I suppose! I figure if someone out there did it before me, then certainly I can get to the end! Now to tackle the huge box of fabric I got from Purl... and start my quilt mountain!!!
