The year 2008 was definitely Year of the Pillow. I went crazy making pillows for all our freshly painted rooms: the 3-season porch, our bedroom and Wilson's room. Last year, 2009, I'll call The Year of Soap with a small dash of ottoman slip-covering towards the end, culminating with the now infamous sew-through-my-right-index-finger incident. They say you have to get right back on the horse after you're thrown, so I did make 2 more after the disastrous first one, thankfully without any bodily harm.
Twenty-ten is starting off as another year of soap, a couple quilts and my latest favorite project: bags. Now that the trend to BYO shopping bags to stores is catching on, you really can't have too many bags. It's a great way to recycle old shirts, sheets and jeans. I have to confess I did purchase some heavy canvas for the one pictured but I am using up some of my fabric stockpile for the linings. A little recycling is better than none, right?
