Pi Pillow

Don't look too closely, this is my first attempt at the Pi Pillow from the Stitch magazine, spring issue. It was lots of fun (I have LOTS of scraps saved from favourite fabrics) and hopefully the first of many Pi Pillows.

Old Lamp, New Shade!

While back east visiting my family this summer, I found my old bedroom lamp in the storeroom, the pink felt shade with pom pom trim long gone I guess. So here it is, version 2, for my son, with Heather Ross dogs and, I couldn't resist, pom pom trim (or as they're known around here, dingo-balls). I've since found another milk glass base (hooray!) at the Sally Ann and will make another one soon. This was my first project that required spray adhesive (my friend Tara's secret weapon!) which was an adventure in itself. I managed to spray my entire left hand - anyone know how to get that stuff off?!
Now if only I had a photo of the original shade crafted by my mom!
