Well, at least it’s complete on my end! I’ve mailed off my pillow to my partner (though it may take a bit to get there) and I received the most beautiful pillow from Tacha/Hanies from Germany!
Here the two are:
The pillow I sent is on the left and the pillow I received is on the right.
Oh, I’m so lucky! I’ve had the best partners recently! Woohoo! Tacha worked hard to make something that I would love, but really all she had to do was make anything. Because I always love whatever she makes!
It actually matches our sofa perfectly…though I think I may keep it in my sewing room for a while to protect it! LOL.
She did the most lovely quilting and designed the pillow to imitate an argyle pattern that I loved. She’s oh so clever!
I love the diamond pattern and the mitered corners on the little squares. And the solids! Oh, it’s just so lovely!
I received it a while back but it’s 20″ square and I didn’t have a pillow form that size. I’ve been attempting to buy one for a while now, but was finally able to zip in Joann’s right before they closed, use a 40% off coupon plus my 10% discount card…and tada! I have a beautiful new pillow all the way from a dear friend in Germany! This is why I love swapping. I have a wonderful creation from a women I met in my very first bee and have continued to be in the same bees and swaps together… I love it when I actually start recognizing international addresses! How cool is that? LOL.
In other sewing news, I’m now officially officially late on my 3 x 6 Bee blocks. My husband is trying to convince me to do a simpler pattern for everyone because the one I chose is ridiculously hard. But now i feel like I have to do it…you know, just to show that I can. I will not be defeated by a pattern. Even if I do have to make it six times! So hopefully I will have those to share with you soon.
I’ve been busy reorganizing my sewing room and once I feel like it’s in a place that I’m content with I’ll do the “big” reveal. I mean it’s really just a room full of shelving and fabric….but I feel confident that you all will appreciate that like others could not. 😉
Christmas has been keeping me busy as well with parties and decorations and slide shows that I’m responsible for…but hopefully I can get some good old-fashioned quilting time in! I think Christmas will be pretty low key and I’m definitely happy about that. We need the rest around here! And I need some more sewing time!

Oh, you know we'll appreciate the sewing room! I agree with you on hoping things will slow down now that Christmas is near. I need some more slowing time!
I cant wait to see your sewing room. One day I will have mine the way I want it…but that requires some additional furniture/storage items first!
Love that pillow you made! The one you received looks like you…. I think its mathematical (is that a word? lol)
Both of the pillows are gorgeous!!!
Oooh, I'd love to see how you organized your sewing room! I'm in need of some organization, so I'd love some inspiration 🙂 I adore the pillow Tacha sent for you, it sure does work perfectly in your space, and that pillow you sent out is just so pretty. Those blue pleats just make me happy 🙂
