Sew Forth and Sew On Sunday

I've decided I want to keep it. This pillow I made. I just love the way it looks on my bed. Besides, I got a "Wild Hare" again. I can't help myself. I really just love shades of white.

Remember all the blue accents in my bedroom?  Well, they are outta here. Out with my blue mood they went.

Replaced with white linen curtains that let even more light flow into my room. I love living with light. It makes me feel happy, calm and peaceful.
I even spray painted this white.

Then I thought...I need to keep this art quilt I made too. As I love it to much to sell it and it looks really great in my dining room.

I'm working on some new things now with wool and velvet and yes, they are white.

My finger is getting better from the squirrel bite. Glad my little tale made lots of you laugh. It was pretty funny when I think about it. Here's my new hairdo. She put the dark color back in and added highlights. I also had her cut it as I was looking like a scraggley witchee poo.

I can't wait until it get's cooler so I can wear jeans again.
Have a fun Sunday and stay cool.

Hi Shell:
You don't know how many times I clicked on that pillow! I'm not surprised that you decided to keep it.
Love the new hair color. It's perfect on you. I can't wait for jeans weather, either, my friend.

It is hard to sell the things we make--I know!!! so now I mostly give things away when the mood hits--like I gave Amy and her sister Taylor each one of my Schnibbles quilts when they left Cameo here that Friday!!!
Love the new bedroom---and that pillow is perfect!!
the hair do is great on you too!!
so if the house is looking so good and you are looking sooo good--how are you planning to "celebrate" it all!!!?????
Hugs. Di

Hi Michelle,

Your bedroom is beautiful and I could see why you would want to keep the new pillow, looks lovely.
You look fabulous with your new hair do, don't you always feel like a new Lady! I went on Wednesday to have my hair done, and looks so much better.
Glad to hear that your finger is getting better.

Now we know where the blue from the bedroom went! Your eyes and clothes! Oh, I hate wearing jeans, I think they are so confining! I love the bedroom!

The pillow, your hair and YOU are gorgeous! I love your blog and your work.

Jenny of Elefantz said...

Now, you know how I feel about white, so no surprise that I LOVE the room makeover. :-)
Also think your hair is fabulous!!!

Jessica said...

I love your room! Unfortunately white and little boys don't mix, so it will be quite a while before I have a white bedroom!
Your hair looks great too!

I love light too and HAVE to have it in my home, regarless of the colour scheme. We'll be hunting for a new home when we return to the UK after a year in the Far East soon, and on the list of 'essentials' is: big windows and plenty of light.

Greetings from Taiwan, where many homes are seriously dark as the apartment buildings are so closely packed together that often only one elevation can get any natural light! AND they all use fluorescent bulbs - eeek!

Your bedroom is beautiful. Love the new hairdo, gorgeous blue eyes!

Maggey and Jim said...

Love the hair, so becoming.. I too love jeans.

You ? a scraggely witchy poo?
Just one question
Do you ever wear all white????
The pics of your home always intrigue me - they are so white. They look like heaven might be - not that I would KNOW!!!! LOL! They are so peaceful - like the noise has been silenced. very calm.
