Not Much to Talk About.....

Hi Bloggerettes!  Not much to talk about today. I thank all of you for your thoughts and concern for our safety during Hurricane Irene.
You are such a great and loving bunch of sweeties.

There were no auctions or sales this week, so I created a few more pillows.  I figure when the goin gets tough, the tough take to their studio and start creating.  Afterall, doesn't everyone make pillows during a hurricane....
I couldn't sleep on Friday night because all I could hear were the howling winds and things going bump in the night.  Irene was out there but the worse was not being able to see what she was doing.

When I make a new pillow I love to place it in different areas of my home just to see how it looks.  Do you do that too?  Of course you do, what other way can we come up with good blogging photos.

I can't take credit for making this fabulous skirt.  My friend and booth buddy at The Fancy Flea, Gloria, created this pretty.

Looks good on my auction find slipcovered chair.  Heck, I might just keep it!

It's okay now Gizzy.  You can come out.  The big bad Irene monster is gone.

I know Gabby, nothing ever excites you...

Okay ya'll can come out and play now.  The coast is clear.
Get out there and create, sew, photograph, write, cook, repurpose, paint or find something wonderful and share it with us.




You are such a cute read! I am glad to hear that you are safe and sound...and having fun around your house..sewing probably what I'd be doing too...or sketching in my journal....or....or.....

Love your new pillow! and that slip covered chair is awesome!

ciao bella

Great pillow, Sissie! Love the image. Glad everything is okay your way, too. I love your friend Gloria's slip for the chair; I guess she's only selling them out of the booth{?}.

Great pillow Sissy, and i just want to kiss Gizzy right smack on her little pink pussy cat nose. I'm sure she'd be horrified though...

I'm so glad you are safe Sissie. I would be a big ole scaredy cat in a hurricane. I don't think I would be making pillows for sure. I would be hiding out so deep you'd never find me. I am so glad that you are braver than me, cause that pillow is beautiful!!!no matter where you put it!!!

Just stopped by to say hello, and I knew you would have something awesome to share. Love these pillows.

I don't think I realized you were at Ocean Isle. We live in the Piedmont region. We're almost neighbors. I know you're glad Irene is gone.

I hope to see you for Pink Saturday this weekend.

Sweet Meanderings said...

I'm glad you made it through Irene all right - and were creative doing it! The pillows are just beautiful!

Karen Valentine said...

Hi Sissie! I am so glad to hear that Irene left you safe and sound!! I think the media sometimes makes more out of things than is necessary although I don't know if that was the case here or not. Your pillow is fabulous! I really like it. In fact all the pillows I've seen are pretty Fab!! Have a wonderful week and I hope you don't have too much cleaning up to do!

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Sissie,
I would have done the same thing just sit tight and sew its best to just keep busy.....Your pillows are great I love them. Mama Nature has not been happy this much water damage.
Thank goodness all is ok at your house.
Sending you big hugs, Elizabeth
