She has never sewed before, but she loves fabric. I can tell that she has the beginnings of a fabric addiction. She can spend hours looking at different fabrics on the internet.
She picked out four great fabrics to make her pillows. She chose to make the front of the pillows with decor fabric and the back with a coordinating Kona cotton. I taught her how to make an envelope back so she can remove the covers and wash them.
**Sorry everyone, I didn't get fabric names or pictures of the fabrics. We were pressed for sewing time, but I will post pictures of the finished pillows in the near future.
Now who is taking the pictures, you might ask. Well, that is my other sister, Jaren, over at Kiwi Fit. (I'm the oldest)
She was busy taking pictures and making salsa.
You can find the recipes for the salsas and dips she made for us here. The pineapple salsa is to die for. She made tomato salsa because my parents have a large vegetable garden that is over flowing with tomatoes, jalapeños, and banana peppers. Salsa is a great way to use up those garden veggies (and its really good for you).
Sisters... don't we look friendly. She kept getting on to us because we were not being very photogenic. I kept blinking and we both looked too serious. What can we say, we were focused!
But we had fun. Never a dull moment when the three of us get together. Actually it can get pretty crazy.
Logann had fun and is so proud of her pillow covers. She did a great job! I am not sure if she is going to sew on a regular basis, but she really enjoyed it (I'll keep working on her). We didn't finish making all the pillow covers, but we will finish them the next time she visits. When they are all finished, I promise I will post pictures.
Now on a non-sewing related topic, I just have to say that I am completely ecstatic that the Tour de France has started. I am a huge cycling fan and love every minute of the Tour. I follow other cycling races, but this one is my favorite. I can promise you that for the next three weeks I will be watching the Tour while I am sewing. I can't get enough.
Sadly my favorite cyclist, Andy Schleck, is out with a broken pelvis. So I am not sure who I will be cheering for this year. There are many cyclists that I follow, but he is my favorite. Ok, this will be the last of the sports talk. Back to sewing!
Have a great week!
