My Roadside Find

I'm sorry I haven't posted lately.  The summer has been overwhelming to me with still settling into the house, organizing, t-ball, church activities, meetings and on and on.  I am still trying to figure out that delicate balance and unfortunately, crafting and blogging have hit the back burner.  That might all change when you see what I found the other day. . .

I am not a garbage picker.  I just find that yucky.  I wish I was a garage sale person, but inevitably I always have all three kids with me when I see a good garage sale.  I find that it just isn't worth getting three young kids out of the car to potentially find a good bargain.

The other day while on our way to church for a splash day with the kids, I saw what I knew would be my first garage pick.  On the road out of our neighborhood, someone had put two wingback chairs on the curbside.  Oh, my heart started to beat faster.  I love wingback chairs and our budget doesn't have new furniture in it at all.  I knew I could work my crafting magic on this duo.

Easy Pillow Covers Tutorial

I'm very busy this summer making our rental house a home.  In addition to that I have been sick with sinus infections and such for over a month.  That has left me with little energy to blog.  I apologize!

The other day I had enough energy to do some sewing while the kids played.  Can I say how nice it is to have the sewing machine back out!  I love how quickly you can accomplish a project when working at the sewing machine.  A friend of my commented on Facebook about all that I was able to sew.  She said, "Most people can live on bread and water, but not Jill, she needs her sewing machine as well!"  I'm sure I am not the only one like that!

Today, I want to share with you my favorite way to make pillows.  If any of you have kids or pets and your pillows get dirty, it is nice to be able to take off the fabric and wash it without having to wash the entire pillow.  Another nice feature is you can change out your decor easily and not have to stuff another pillow and hand-sew the seam.
