The title of my post must sound crazy to some of you, but it's true. We're finally experiencing some steady sunny days here in the NW with temps in the 80's. Love it!
These are lemons, if they ever turn yellow??
Strawberry plant from my dear friend, Heather, at My Everyday Graces.
The nicer weather has inspired me to do a little freshening up outside. I posted here about our backyard getting an update last year. We are really enjoying the water feature.
I used these fabrics to make a few seat cushions and an accent pillow to liven up the seating areas. They're outdoor fabrics from Joann's.
I did some cutting to get just the right flower for the front of my pillow.
This is what I wanted for the center of the pillow.
Here it is with a couple of store bought pillows from last year.
I backed it with the contrasting fabric and used an envelope closure (see the lens cap)
because I'm terrible at finishing a pillow with a hand stitch.
Here's the other side of the patio.
As you can see, I didn't even finish these seat cushions, but just
tucked the remaining unsewn side like a pillow case.
I hope summer lasts awhile!
