All of our couch cushions were looking a little ratty. And we inherited a bunch of kilim pillow cases from my dad which are beautiful to look at but way too scratchy to lean against (let alone rest your head on). So I thought I would make some. I finished the one and then moved on to other things (it is Christmas ya know) and now I have a big pile of fabric slated for pillow cases and a bunch of still-ratty looking couch pillows. Oh well.
And one small gripe: I am finding it very hard to get into the holiday spirit when it is 60 degrees and rainy.
