I HATE THREADING THAT DARN SEWING MACHINE. You see, I do a fine job of threading the needle but can't seem to get the blasted bobbin to catch. I am aware that many of you do not know that all this jargon means, but I just wanted to express my anger in hopes that I will try to thread it again soon. UGH it makes me so angry I could throw it across the room though. I spent an hour trying to do it. I looked up youtube videos, tutorials..everything. And still no luck. What's funny is that JUST LAST NIGHT I sewed part of a pillow with no trouble whatsoever. I threaded it, the bobbin caught and I showed it who was boss.
Now, it's going to be the death of me. I just want to sew my ADORABLE Christmas pillows!!!
now that's that is off my chest, I will share with you a few other projects that I have done in the past few weeks. First of all, meet my fall-ish wreath made of Burlap.
I took it off my door because the light was not cooperating inside, that's why I took these pictures outside.
I made a few flowers with some fabric I had left over from a previous project and just pinned them on there. That way, I can change them out with the seasons! I love the "country rustic" feel that Burlap gives to a home.
Here is what it looks like when it's on the door in our dining area:
It was easy to make and didn't take too terribly long. I got the tutorial somewhere online, but can't remember where! If any of you know, just email me and I will give credit where it's due.
I also picked up a shelf from goodwill for a whopping two dollars. It was just dark wood, but was really scratched up and old looking so I gave it a nice new coat of spray paint and it goes wonderfully in our room!
I also distressed it a tad and then added a little blue green paint. It's the same color as the quilt/comforter on our bed.
I also did the same thing to two more shelves that I got FO FREE! My friend was about to trash them and so I took them so she didn't have to!They are now in our living room!!
I just threw that random decor on the shelves. I kind of like it, but I kind of don't. See my little scarecrow man? He was 80% off at Hobby Lobby. I paid around 3 dollars for him. Cute, huh?
And last, but not least for today..here are some place mats turned pillows that I converted. yes, they were place mats at Wal-mart and I thought they would be the perfect pillow! I got out my seam ripper and tore the seam from one side of the bottom and just stuffed it with pillow filling! i love them. so fall-ish.
pretty little fall leaf pillows...mmm..I love fall.
but i also love Christmas. and you better believe i already know how i am going to decorate our home. i can't wait! (i don't know why i just wrote that whole sentence with incorrect capitalization...oh well)
So, i hope this inspired you to stay with the fall season a teensy bit longer...Christmas will be here soon, but keep embracing fall!! You'll miss the crisp cool weather and yummy colored trees!
