I finally made some new fall pillows for my couch, two from a gorgeous, creamy, vintage wool blanket, and one from the last of some navy blue ikat fabric I brought back from Indonesia ages ago. I made the tartan pillow last winter, and am happy to have it sprucing things up this fall after a summer in storage. I love trading around pillows, artwork, etc. when the seasons change, it makes my house feel refreshed, and it's less costly than buying new stuff. Might be time to move some furniture around too, slightly more daunting though.

Fooling around making color co-ordinated banners from stamps, just for fun. I used Angela's stamps, and just ran them through my sewing machine with white thread. You could do it too!

It's raining like crazy today, which is good, because I need to stay inside and get work done. Sunny days I get too distracted going on long bike rides when I should be working.

It's freezing in my house! Time for another cup of tea and another sweater to layer on. BRRRR.
