Would you like to know one of my favorite things about a new apartment? Sewing new pillows & things to cheer it up. :-) We're slooooowly unpacking, and I'm slooooowly decorating. With a lot of light blue, because right outside our windows is so much water.
Here are some new flanged pillow cases - that's some Nicey Jane in front, and some Leanika (Um. No. I'm totally not obsessed with that fabric line. At all. Why, really, I haven't bought a whole bunch of half yards of it to sew with! (; ).
The pillow cases were fun to sew up, although I had to improvise with some of the back zippers since I didn't have very many of the right size.
Here is the view out of my new bedroom window... yes, if you look closely, that's the Statue of Liberty hiding behind Ellis Island. We look out towards the New York harbor, and I have to say- this view is something amazing.
Almost as great as my beloved Elliott Bay. Yeah, NYC is amazing- but my heart still belongs in Seattle with the Thursday night regattas outside, and the white & green ferries going back and forth all day.
