Inspired here, and as a result was directed here,
I thought I would make a quick throw pillow. I do not have any pretty ones and love how they change up a room.
I decided to wing it and make a few scrappy blocks, throw on some sashing and admire my creation.
Enter silly girl.
 Instead I created some blocks, measured out the sashing, realized I was doing math, retrieved more coffee, loosely measured and cut the sashing, sewed a little, answered the phone, threw in a load of laundry, rearranged the blocks, re-cut the sashing,
realized I can’t do math,
cut more sashing to make up for the fact
that I can’t do math, drank more coffee,
and before I knew it, it was 3:30 in the afternoon and I was still futzing with the pillow.
At this point, I became determined to finish.
That is, after a good laugh at myself.
So right before dinner, I finished it up!
You know some days I get a thousand things accomplished and others…..not so much.

I think it turned out very nice! Any day where laundry is done is a productive day in my book!

Oh, this cracks me up!! Yes...I am most certainly the same way. The final product, however, is beautiful!!! Love the pillow!
