Room with A View

Since moving my sewing room into the dining room, I have consciously tried to pretty up what I see out that window. I have 5 roses in the foreground right outside the window that I didn't keep up with the anti-rust treatment & have already had to cut them back. :( The trumpet vines are really flourishing & I love looking at them. Every time I do I think, 'You know, Amy Butler's Trumpet Flower in pink is the exact shade of my trumpet flowers! I need to make a pillow to put on that bench to match'. This conversation has continued with myself for several months now, and I'm happy to say I jumped in and made it out of the laminated cotton. Now, I just need to paint the bench, get new flowers for the pot. At least I can check the pillow off my list! :) Here is a link to the Sew & Tell Friday: http://www.amylouwho.com/

Oh, I was just looking at that laminated fabric the other day! I never thought of using it for outdoor pillows! Brilliant!

Wow what a view!!
See just like I said on my post what I imagined your home to be like. Pretty and magical and it is most certainly that.

Have missed you.

Hugs,
