Sew fun...

I have wanted to make some new cushions for the sofa for what seems like years now. For one reason or another (no time, didn't want to spend the money, couldn't think of how I wanted them to look) I just never got around to it. Today, finally I made two new pillows and I couldn't be happier with them.
I got the fabric at Joann's the other day - didn't even cost me anything, since I was given a gift card at the end of the school year. Just picked some fabrics that made me smile and more or less just started cutting it up.
Ich wollte schon seit einer halben Ewigkeit neue Kissen fuer das Wohnzimmer Sofa naehen. Aus irgendeinem Grund (keine Zeit, wollte das Geld nicht ausgeben, konnte mich nicht entscheiden wie die Kissen aussehen sollten) habe ich mich aber nie an die Naehmaschine gesetzt und sie gemacht. Bis heute frueh! Ich habe zwei Kissen genaeht und koennte mit dem Endresultat nicht zufriedener sein.
Vor ein paar Tagen bin ich zu Joann's (einem Stoff/Bastelladen) und habe dort richtig zugeschlagen. Von "meinen" Kindern hatte ich zum Jahresabschluss einen Geschenkgutschein fuer Joann's bekommen, und so hat mich der ganze Spass nicht einmal etwas gekostet!

What can I say, reds oranges and yellows are happy colors to me and I love having them in the house.
Was soll ich sagen, rot, orange und gelb sind meine Lieblingsfarben und ich liebe es sie im Haus zu haben.
And since I was having so much fun sewing them, the machine is still out and I'm working on another project. Sew much fun. ;-)
Nachdem ich soviel Spass beim Naehen hatte, ist die Maschine noch nicht weg geraeumt und ich arbeite an einem anderen Projekt.
