I finished a couple more projects!!

When Sally and I stopped by HL, I picked up some supplies to finish a couple of projects!  They have been PATIENTLY waiting!!
Months ago Karen and I found these cute towels at a boutique and we challenged each other to make a pillow.  I finally got mine done!  The flower is not my creation, but a swap gift....I cut a doily apart and coffee stained it.  Even my husband said, "That is quite nice"!  WOW!




I have blog envy....now, don't you snicker, you all probably have it too!  I see all these gorgeous cheese trays and lifts...for vignettes....but I just frankly, don't have any!!  So what is a girl to do?
Make one!
I had this drawer front.  I found the extra large spools and painted them and then put paper that went in my kitchen.  Can you say, love it?  I really think this is cute and I am going to look for a square piece of wood to do one!!  IF I had some old door knobs...(I am in my Mamie Jane mode here!) I would use those!!


Yesterday and today I have been sorting and organizing my craft supplies.  What a job...and I don't even have that much!  But I got it done!  I do have a couple of things I would like to make for Fall decorating.  Or, I guess I should say I want to copy cat!!  Anyways, later for that.

I am joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday....
Wow Us Wednesday at Kim's

Great job on your projects, Ceekay. I love the verse on the pillow. You did a beautiful job on it. Looks like something one might see for sale in a gift boutique.

Ceekay wow you are just going full speed ahead with all your wonderful projects!!! That is such a fabulous idea using a drawer front and spools for the cheese tray! Love all the 'bee" things on it!

Your pillow-- just gorgeous!! Who would have known a tea towel could look so fantastic!!

I want to to to that tea room sometime!! I love tea and that looks like so much fun!!!

3 batches of jelly- 2 elderberry, 1 plum, 2 batches of zucchini bread and cleaning out a terrible junk drawer. That was my day!

Nancy said...

Hi Ceekay (have I ever told you how much I like your name?...It just sounds so happy!),

I think that's one of the cutest pillows. I love that you added the lace to the corners...something I haven't seen on all the Frency-grainsack / burlap things so popular now. This is soooo pretty!

bj said...

I LUV this pillow. You did a fantastic job. Tell me, did you make it so you can take the cover off to wash it...? I am about to make a couple of pillows and I am not sure how to do the envelope style. I'll probably just "make a regular pillow...much easier.

I love your riser, too. Good idea.

I love the little pillow to bits Ceekay!

That pillow is fabulous! I bet you win the challenge. I have not seen the raised cheese boards, it gave me an idea! Ureka! Have a great weekend! Oh, I have never seen fabric stamping pads in any stores, let me know if you find any, it would be easier than ordering on line

Jane said...

Hi Ceekay,
You did a beautiful job on your pillow! I love the towel that you used to create it. Great idea to cut up the doily. I always chuckle when my hubby comments on a project of mine. The one I posted today actually got a thumbs up from him!
Your lift from the drawer front was a great idea too.....you know I smiled when I read you were in your Mamie Jane mode :)
Have a wonderful weekend.
Jane

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Ceekay,
I just love your pillow. It is awesome. The flower embellishment is gorgeous. You are very creative and talented.
It is funny because I have been on a pillow kick lately and made a few for Fall from dollar store kitchen towels. I love finding pillows and then embellishing them with vintage lace etc. So much fun to work on.
Your display lift made from the drawer front is perfect. What a great use of the drawer.

Have fun creating and great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
