Pillow Parade!

Kari and Kijsa are hosting a wonderful Pillow Parade. Pillows can add so much to a room and are a fun (easy) project you can complete in such a short time! They can easily add color, texture and whimsy to any room. These two pillows I made and make a comfy chair in my art room a great place to relax.

This sweet pillow my daughter made for me for Christmas, with Lauren's help!

These pillows I made for Lauren's bed in her cowgirl room. She loves to prop them up behind her and read!

I recently made a duvet cover for a small feather filled lap quilt. I also created several pillows from old feather pillows that go with the cover.

These pillows sit on m bed. I love finding old needlepoint and making new pillows from them. Again I used old feather pillows (cut down) to create the needlepoint pillows. They're great when your trying to read in bed to prop your head just at that perfect angle.

This cowgirl pillow and the next two needlepoint pillows make my "friend" chairs in my office a comfortable to visit with me while I'm working.

And...finally, this is where I sit to do my work! I made the little back pillow and cushion from my great stash of fabric Mr. Jon supplies me. Thank you Jon.

Thank you to Kari & Kijsa for allowing all of us to show off the comfy pillows that make up our homes. Be sure to check out the links on their blog today!
