Indoor Projects

It's been so cold outside this past week, that I've been busy doing indoor projects.
Remember this clock

I purchased it for my space at Winnie & Tulula's. It was once a sign for a bank, and there was a matching clock for the other side, but it was in pieces

Roger and I took on the challenge of trying to piece it back together. Not all of it was there. So I tucked it away under the bed, until last week.
I finally decided to get it out and glue it to a back board

What do you think? I don't know where I'm gonna put it yet, I may just leave it there leaning against the wall. There are lots of tiny tiny pieces around the "6".

I also decided to try and make some pillows out of some coffee sacks I'd accumulated.

Now the sewing machine and I don't get along too well, so there is a lot of blood sweat and tears in these little pillows. I think I've got it figured out now and I may make some more.

I finally got my couch slipcovered. This sofa is a sleeper and is in my creative space room. It's very convenient if we have extra guests, but it's ugly.
I decided to buy a slip cover for it, but I didn't like the way it looked (still looked like a sheet draped over a sofea). So I added aChenille bedspread and some pillows. I love it now.

It's warming up outside so I was able to unload my trailer, and straiten up a little out in the barn. Yippee!!!!

Good job with the clock. And I love the pillows. I have come sacks with stains and now I know what to do with them.

Oh Margo - I love those little pillows!!! I personally don't think a sewing machine works properly unless it's being screamed it - nice curse words and a few teardrops in place of machine oil. LOLOL

The clock is TOTALLY awesome!!!

I'm lovin' the pieced clock and the pillows. The missing pieces of the clock add charm and character, don't you think? And looking a the pillows, one would never guess you and the sewing machine weren't getting along really well. ;-)
