Ta-da! I finally pulled out the fabric I purchased about a month ago at The Needle Shop and made two pillows for our bed. Every year or so, I paint the interior walls of our condo with different spot colors as a fix for my addiction to color. In our master bedroom, I’ve settled on a darkish taupe for three walls and a linen color for one wall and a nook. The taupe is a rich neutral that affords me the opportunity to switch accent colors on pillows and bedspreads when I get the urge for a change. For spring, we usually pull out the white chenille bedspread because it’s lightweight and looks fresh and crisp against the wall and cherry wood. Pink has been on my mind for this room, so I pounced on the graphic print fabric for these pillows. I’m happy with the way they turned out. Now on to my next sewing project—two dresses.

P.S. The Needle Shop has a store in Chicago and an online Etsy store.
