    So it's been awhile since I posted any photos here...or anything on this site for that matter. I have been up to my eyeballs in boxes to unpack and a house to move into and re-organize that I haven't had much time to really post messages or post photos. But I figured I would show you one of my latest little projects.

    I just looooooooooove making my own chenille!!! I've become addicted! Here are some cushions I made!

    Great pillows. Moving is a lot of work. But new spaces are fun.

    I love your pillows!!! When you come back online (unpacking is so much fun... NOT!) would you mind sharing how you make your own chenille? I'd love to know. :D

    I use 100% cottons in all my cushions. Some are better to use than others. I love trying different fabrics to see what the results will be! There are so many things you can make when making your own chenille. I love it! I'm in the process of making a few other different designs using chenille.

    Once I get a bit more unpacked and organized, I'll see what I can do about setting up a little chenille class!!! Let's see how much interest is out there!
