MODA PILLOW TALK!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I am excited to share my pillow with you and I am happy to say I'm offering the pattern for free! When Moda Lissa first told me about the pillow talk project, before Quilt Market last Fall, I really liked the idea of creating a project that was inspired by all the things that are special to me. I set out doodling and came up with the spiral idea and went from there. The flower in the center of the pillow is me (not that I think I'm the center of the universe or anything). The first off-shoot from the stem spiral is my family because they are nearest and dearest to my heart. There is a flower for my husband Steve, and one for each of my sons, Cory and Tom. Continuing along the stem spiral in the opposite corner is what my day to day life is all about - CREATING! The little shoots represent ideas and the crazy big bloom is the culmination of those little ideas into an A-HA moment. The next corner symbolizes my challenge to myself to reach out and step out of my comfort zone to experience to things. The last corner flower is really a bud, me at the beginning of my life. The "fingers" that hold that bud represent my mom giving me a great foundation in this life. And finally, throughout the whole thing, are a series of 3 red dots. These are my sisters, Ann and Bonnie, and myself. We are always there for each other!
Now, just in case that's not enough information, Lissa put together a list of questions for us -
What is a little known fact about yourself? I can raise one eyebrow
How do you relax? Listen to music and hand stitch or draw
What do you sleep in? I like to sleep in a stretchy cotton top and flannel bottoms. Probably not Steve's first choice for my sleep attire.
Do you sew in bed? Read? Watch TV? eat? I love to climb into bed with a good book.
How many nights have you or your spouse spent on the couch? Steve spent 1 night on the couch a loooooonnnnnnnggggggg time ago.
Nighttime toddy? No, but I like a glass of red wine with dinner
Early to bed or all-nighter? I'm usually asleep by 11:30, but I was able to stay up till midnight on New Years Eve!
Who would you most like to have a pillow fight with? Besides Steve..... (Steve close your ears) it would have to be with George Clooney
This Girl's Life Pillow Pattern. Enjoy!
