PTS 10 Recieved

This round of the Pillow Talk Swap has seen some utterly fabulous pillows being made - and over the last week or so they've started arriving at their new homes. There were a handful made that I was really, really hoping were mine - and one of those arrived at my house today :o) Along with a massive pile of extras (thread, bias tape, really cool hexy templates, thread, drawstring bag = completely spoilt!)


PTS 10 parcel recieved

Kristan (doodledoodesigns on Flickr) got me perfectly. Chicopee paired with natural linen, using a really cool paper pieced block. 


PTS 10 recieved

Even the back is fabulous! More Chicopee, with a covered zip closure (my favorite for keeping cushions intact with small children ;o) )


And here she is in her new home, alongside her Chicopee siblings. Perfection.

Thanks so, so much to Kristan and the swap mamas - I will definitely be doing PTS again!

In case you wanted to spoil yourself this weekend, Becca at Sew Me A Song is running a Flat Rate Shipping Special this weekend. 

Flat rate shipping of $2.75US/ $9.00 Canada/ $12.00 Everywhere else 

There is no minimum or maximum on this - so international peeps can save a TONNE of money on shipping. It's running through until Sunday 9th June - just put FLATRATE in the notes to seller at checkout and Becca will refund the postage overcharge when it ships. Becca has a huge amount of great stuff in at the moment - and a great sale section ;o)

Hope everyone has a great weekend - it's a long weekend here, and we'll be ripping out some really fugly dark wood paneling in our rumpus room to make way for new plaster in a week or two. 

xx Jess

Would you notice if I flew all the way to Taz and just sat on the sofa and admired the trio of cushions!?

It's such a gorgeous cushion and works perfectly with the others on your settee!

Oh my goodness it's like the Chicopee Waltons ;) Perhaps my Chicopee cushion over at Jess' could be a cousin? Anyway, I'm waffling - I love the pillow you received - your partner read you so well!
