I Should Have Been Quilting, But...




After finishing my snowman embroidery project last week, I figured I had better get the pillow made before became a UFO.  Yesterday I should have been quilting but instead I played with fabric strips and bordered my piece.


After lunch, I was going to start quilting bur there was that pillow top laying there begging for a back.  So I caved and played with more strips and added a zipper.  This morning I made some piping and put the top together.  


Then I grabbed a chuck of icky feeling fabric that I've stashed away for when I need to make a pillow form (Have you bought pillow forms lately??? WOWZA!!).  I got out the bag of polyfill and started filling my form.  I touched something that startled me and pulled out this little paper bag with a stuffing tool inside.  I've used this polyfill quite a bit and have never found a surprise inside.  

I'm happy my pillow is complete and now I will put it away for winter.  Today I must quilt.

That stuffing tool makes a great stiletto, btw.

Looks like you got lots done, even if it isn't a quilt.
