The Luckiest Girl: Library Love Pillows




Have you ever had so much fun with a project that you start wishing you could disappear with your sewing machine for like a week? I tried, but Travelocity doesn't offer such a holiday. They should. And I'm not crazy.

Library love pillows - my heart is swooning. Arielle adores all books by Beverly Cleary. Printing a favorite book cover and refashioning it into a pillow to hug is almost too good to be true.


I was a lucky girl and won a four week art e-course with Jeanne, thanks to Edie's giveaway last month. I'm in the middle of five projects right now - Edie's quote is so me - but the library love pillow required materials that I had on hand and could finish quickly. 


This type of project is dangerous for me; every bed, chair, and sofa runs the risk of five or six of these beauties. Jeanne has inspired confidence and knowledge to make art that is meaningful to me and my family, and I can't thank her enough.


I'll be taking a bloggy break until next week - Friday night is the Opening Ceremony for the Summer Olympics - will you be simultaneously glued to your sewing machine and TV like me?
