Kathy's lampshade redo with this fabric, I just had to find some for myself. I bought a half yard with a coupon, and it was still the most expensive fabric I've ever purchased. I have enough for 3 pillow fronts... What to do for the backs? A visit with my friend Mary Anne last week sent me home with fabric for pillowcases for our service project and some for me. She also had some fabric samples that were very cool. I choose a couple I loved and knew I would use. Thanks M.A.!
I'm making a couple of pumpkins, like I saw at the Country Living Fair. I got a roll of artist canvas, and I already had the pattern. I put the pattern on an old plastic place mat, if I am going to use it more that once. It's much easier to trace than to pin. I learned this trick years ago when I did craft fairs and did production sewing. (I hated production sewing!)
These are the decorative rocks they sell in the floral section of Hob Lob and Michaels, I'm using for some weight so the pumpkin stands up straight.
