Moda…designer pillow blog hop

Good Morning Everyone…I hope some of you are checking out my blog for the first time and hope you come back again!…Since I am the “newest” Moda designer, I have the least to work with…I currently only have 5 sku’s! The primitive muslins in all the same colors, shades of tan…So whats a girl to do with this limited pallet?  Stay in it of course!   Lissa asked us to design a pillow that describes ourselves…Well I guess that would mean I would be using WOOL!   Here is my simple pillow…so simple it needs no pattern!  How green is that?

The pillow background is the darkest shade in the primitive muslin line cut 12″ x 16″.  Cut a 3″ square of the following: 1 of the lightest and two each of the next two shades.  Then from various cream/tan wools I traced on fusible web and cut 5 wool circles of 2 1/4″,  5 wool circles-1 1/2″ and then 5 wool circles-1″.  Place the 5 squares in a row at the center of your pillow background.  Stitch in a 1/4″ around the five squares.  Place the circles onto each of the 5 squares and iron with steam.  Blanket stitch with Valdani O196 #12 perle cotton around each penny, stitching to the next penny using long stitches.  Make a back and stitch right sides together leaving a 4″ opening.  Turn right side out and stuff…stitch opening closed.

Now for all those questions….

What is a little know fact about yourself?…I always try to do everything to the best of my ability…no half-a**ing from me.  This also means I expect this from everyone around me also…I have surrounded myself with great people and great things have happened to me…I am very blessed.

How do you relax?…I many ways now…I love spending time on our boat, but that is obviously seasonal…I get messages now and then… and I exercise and get mani-pedi’s when I can… A girl’s got to take care of herself!

What do you sleep in? I sleep in pajama pants and a matching pajama shirt…I love Nick & Nora…from Target!

What kind of pillow do you like?  I like a firm feather pillow that I can hug…

Did I sleep with a stuffed animal?  I don’t know…but I do remember that one Christmas I got a doll and all my brothers got cool trucks and sports stuff…I was so mad I threw the doll down the basement stairs…yes…you guessed it…I was a major TomBoy!

Do you sew in bed, Read watch TV eat?  No I do not sew in bed…i am very good at losing needles and that would not be a great place for me to sew…surely they would end up “stuck in” Nick somewhere…I do read, when there is not too much going on…if I have a lot on my place I don’t trust myself reading…I would stay up all night because I need to know what happened…so that can me dangerous for me…If it were up to me I would not watch any TV in bed….but Nick loves to…I never eat in bed…

How many night have you or your spouse spent on the couch…None…I love my bed…

Nighttime toddy?  Nope…but only when we are away doing shows…helps me fall asleep in the hotel bed…

Early to bed or all nighter?  I love to go to bed…so i am ready about 9:30-10:00 then I am usually up by 5am…

Who would I most like to have a pillow fight with? Brad Pitt with his little loin cloth on from TROY!  Yeah…now were talking…

Now tomorrow you need to visit Edyta from Laundry Basket Quilts…I just love going to market and talking with her…the girl knows her stuff…visit her at:   http://www.laundrybasketquilts.com/blog/index.php
