I love making something out of nothing.

That is my favorite kind of project.

I was starting to feel bad that my super squishy baby had to sit in such a hard seat.
So I grabbed some scraps from the fabric I used to make curtains for our old kitchen and some batting from who knows what, and stitched up a little cushion for her little back.

I'm not sure how practical it is, but I sure do love the way it looks.

In other news, we are in the middle of a mini-remodel (turning our Arizona room into a laundry room and our laundry room into an office), so look for pictures of that soon.

And tomorrow is Oliver's birthday.
He wants to celebrate at McDonald's.
Bless his heart.


  1. Did you know that one of the McDonalds near you has a water slide? Maybe you could go to that one.

  2. whoa, a water slide? wow.
    your cushion is perfect, and i can't wait to see your office, if only you didn't have to paint that darn floor. . .

    happy bday oliver!!!

  3. Very cute! I love it! You are so talented. I've heard your house and decorating skills are awesome. :) Can't wait to see what you do next.

  4. Pretty cushion... as long as it is washable it is practical!

  5. and this is exactly why i want to learn to sew - so i can make those random things i suddenly need.


  6. Happy Birthday Oliver!!! Hey, no mess for you to clean up right? Good kid.
    And awesome cushion~ OK. I bought myself a sewing machine so I could do just this kind of thing. I thought that since I took sewing lessons for a couple years as a kid I would pick it right back up. Nope. So one of these playgroup days when either you or me are hosting would you give me a few pointers on the machine?

  7. very cute. those are my favorite projects too... you feel good. you are recycling and filling a need.

  8. i love seeing all of your projects. sometimes i just need to try to be more like you.

  9. You and leslie both have such an "eye" for beauty. I'm hoping it rubs off on me as I "blog stalk" you!

  10. hope it wasn't because of anything i said! although it looks great and stella will be comfy. mom

  11. 1. totally beautiful!
    2. Happy Birthday Oliver!
    3. What's an Arizona room? I know here we have Florida rooms which are just a screened in patio.

  12. Love Stella's cushion. You are so talented and can make something fabulous with nothing.
    Love you

  13. way crafty. wish i could do stuff like that.
