Hello,

Here is the picture of the pie minus two pieces.

After a day long dye day I am being somewhat low-key today.   I got my sewing machine out and am tackling some long awaiting projects.

Silk Eye Pillows

Today I have cut out and sewn some silk eye pillows.

  They are great sellers for me and will work well in the shop and I may put a few on Etsy.  I had dyed the silk some time ago and today cut them our and sewed them.  I will fill them and sew the ends tomorrow.  I have done a label and got some frosted boxes to put them in.  It’s a nice summer day project.

It’s hard to believe that my boy is 18.  It seems like yesterday he was a kitten scampering around.

  He has respiratory problems now and thyroid issues.  Both of which he takes medication for.  He is doing well for his age.  Looks forward to his medication twice a day because its mixed with his favorite food, baby food!  He minds his own business and tried not  to get involved with other cat disputes.

I always have visitors when I am in the back garden.

OLD PILLOWS MADE NEW

I bought the ticking and flag material around the 4th of July with making pillow covers for some very old pillows that I use on the porch in mind.  I dyed the ticking with tea and the plain material is some old material from my Grandparents, probably some feed sacks.  I hope to get one cut out tonight and will sew it tomorrow.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you have a wonderful day.   Carole
