Great idea for the granny's stash!!  I also inherited a bunch of squares, once intended for a quilt.  Can't wait to get those out!!!

This is my first craft-a-long.  I am loving it.  Very addicted to these.

I found a journal for a dollar at Micheals and it fits perfectly.



the outside

the inside


I had a little over lap on one piece so I made it a handy pen holder/loop


Thank you guys for inspiring me.  I had so much fun with this.  
Stash busting is an understatement, I used items from my fabric stash, buttons, and even my ribbon stash.  LOL, finally proof that it IS a good idea to save EVERYTHING!!

Actually, yes! I laid eyes on that particular fabric the last time I saw my grandmother before she died. I asked her if I could have it and she looked at me with a knowing twinkle in her eye, knowing my fabric hording tendencies, and replied "Trying to grab the best stuff before the vultures descend?" I laughed and shrugged my shoulders. She handed me the fabric with a smile. She knew me too well, and I'll miss her.

Awww--what a loving memory of her you have in your lovely journal cover!!

It is such a good idea to put special fabrics like that to "art" use...

I think I might have to start my journal cover with scraps from all of my old kimono fabrics!  Many of them have stories that I would want to remember...

Sorry, mine ended up not being a journal, but it is still very "Teesha Moore."  I am sending this for a swap, but it's ok if my partner sees this, as it is one of several extras and there will still be plenty of surprises.  I am sooo tempted to keep it, though.  My pillows transformed into a picture frame:



I just have a business card in there from a local (and delicious) Colombian restaurant for now.

And the back, just for fun (I sewed in a plastic baggie for the photo holder...it is a little crooked, but it works!):



This was so much fun!!  Definitely the first of many for me!  Thanks for all the inspiration and motivation  Grin

Ooh, they're looking wonderful!

I love the alternative uses too, that frame looks wonderful and has inspired me to try something. Just have to see if it works!
I made two wrist cuffs using this technique and it was great for a 'quick fix' project Wink

I love the wrist cuff idea!

As for a needle, I think I am going to go pick up some hand quilting needles. I always spend forever in the craft store reading every package anyway so I never really thought I looked lost... just informed Wink

I got my dining room table back (long story LOL) so now I can start sewing up the starter pillows this weekend Cheesy. And hubby got paid so I can get some stuffing. I cleaned out my fabric and sewing stash because I hadn't been using it for a few months. So I don't have a whole lot right now. What type of thread have you guys been using to do the hand quilting?

I think I am going to do small embellishments after the quilting but wait for the larger pins and buttons until I see how I am going to use the pillows. Its more of a I don't want them to get in the way while I am attaching all of these together.
