I made this - start to finish. It is perhaps one of the only things that I have completed, sewing wise, it what seems like FOREVER. I used the amazing tutorial at Sewtakeahike and it was easy peasy. I wish I could keep this sweet pillow, but alas, it it for my Modern Swappers partner (I like the swap, hate the name - is that okay to say?). I have plans for more of these pillows for my own house. Let's see if I can get that done before next year.
PS - I wanted to post J.K. Rowling's Harvard speech last week but last week was a little crazy, with first week back to school and all. So here it is today. It is brilliant. I listen to it quite often because it is just so true (in my humble opinion).

PPS - I haven't shared this speech with the boys as of yet because I think they are too little to hear some of it. I will make sure they hear it when the time is right. You should share it too.
PPPS - I just realized I only posted 3 times in August. Let's blame it on huge life change (first month not at job), shall we?
