to complete the trifecta…

…i learned how to sew! (knitting and crocheting are the other two, if you were wondering). i went to marie’s house today for a sewing tutorial and she taught me how to make envelope-style pillows, so you can remove the cover and wash it. so easy! i went to joann fabric and got some fabric from the remnant rack for $4.50 and made this pillow. yay!


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.

    Thanks, Marie – for the comment and the lesson! I don’t know if my professors would call the start of a busy semester a great time to get started on these projects though! 😉 I just keep telling myself it is an important part of work-life balance!
