Yellow & Gray Floor Pillows

My latest project - Floor Pillows! These pillows are 27X27.  The gray and yellow dandelion fabric is from IKEA. I used white piping around the edges.  They are "reversible" as in, one side is yellow and one side is gray :)

Square Pin Cushion

My second sewing project - a pin cushion!  It's a little crooked, but I love it :)

I used this free pattern from Heather Bailey:  Square Deal Pincushion

Bird Couch Pillows

My first official sewing project - Couch Pillows :)

Our couches have been in sore need of some good pillows, however slate blue is a hard color to find pillows for.  Found the perfect fabric at IKEA - black with multi color birds and flowers.  I made three pillows total - size 18X18.

It's name is Archibald (Archie for short) and I can't wait to make lots of awesome stuff with it!

Happy New Year

Hello 2011!  And the beginning of my blog - the quirky peach.  This blog will be a little quirky and a little peachy, but altogether just fun.  I hope to post some of the cool things I do over the year, like sewing projects, culinary attempts, workouts, shopping, beauty - a little bit of everything!  Mostly it's so I don't forget any of it, but I hope any of you readers out there enjoy it too!
