Pillow Parade Marching Through Blog~land

"Thou shalt sit on a cushion
and sew a fine seam
and feed upon strawberries, sugar and cream"

Okay...if I must sit on a cushion...then I shall.  But first I shall gather them all up and be in a parade...cha, cha, cha!

When I heard about the Pillow Parade that blogging golden girls Kari and Kijsa are hosting...well I just couldn't help my little ol' self...I had to jump in line and march along...cuz at the end of the day there isn't anything more important than the cushion you rest your noggin on and the charming~er the cushion, the better.

Yeah baby!

I LOVE house pillows...I just can't stop sewing 'em...

Dish towels aren't just for dishware any longer...
I stitched this bad~boy into a pillow
before he knew what hit him...

One of my "drop cloth" house pillows....stuffed with buckwheat hulls...

Drop cloth house pillow pals...

I saw this sheet at Target...and fell in big time love with it...all I could think was ~
I'm going to make a skirt to wear and some pillows for the living room...
...and...I did...

Another house pillow...house pillow obsession!!!

I think that checkerboard is the friendliest fabric friend...don't you?

The details...made a tube and tied the ends in knots...

Matching curtains in the nook...and my favorite saying stenciled on the walls...

Checkerboard...makes me smile...

Another dishtowel pillow...stuffed to within an inch of it's life with buckwheat hulls...
Seen here hugging a curl~y, swirl~y pillow friend...

My newest house pillows for spring...linen and burlap roof....stuffed with buckwheat hulls...

More spring pillows...

A closer peek~a~loo...

Simple~dimple house pillows...hand painted with love...

See the roof of this pillow....it is made from an old pair of pants my sister gave me years ago...

More wildflowers...

I hope that you enjoy the rest of the parade back over at Kari and Kijsa's...thank you ladies for hosting such a fun party!

Pillows are so easy to make...you don't even have to sew...just hot glue the fabric together if you fancy.  If you can't find a print you have in mind...don't fret...just paint the fabric...if I can do it, ANYONE can do it.  Just let your imagination go wild and more importantly...have fun.

Smiles ~ Ramona

Hi Ramona and it's so nice to meet you! Oh, you're just wonderful! Look at all of these beautiful pillows you've made! I've never seen 'house' pillows but I love them. I truly like the idea of taking a tea towel and making a pillow! I may have to steal, um, borrow that idea!
Thanks for popping in to see my pillows. I hope you'll come back again sometimes.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your blog is great...adding to my reader list.

Ramona: I love your blog! I LOVE those pillows and I am a plate freak too! I am not, however, very good with the sewing machine. I try, and try and try, but it is difficult! I am envious of your gift!

I am adding you to my blog list!

Have a great day!

Lou Cinda :)

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.

רציתי לחלוק אותכם בחוויה אשר עברתי לאחר הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במהלך שנתיים לאחר המאורע, הרגשתי רע מאוד, חסרת שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. בכל טיפול רפואי רגיל לא הצלחתי לעזו לעצמי וכתוצאה מכך פניתי ל- [b][url=http://www.maker.co.il/3_15707/%D7%9E%D7%90%D7%9E%D7%A8/%D7%9B%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%91%D7%93%D7%95%D7%AA-%D7%A2%D7%9C-%D7%A0%D7%A4%D7%A9-%D7%94%D7%90%D7%93%D7%9D-%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%99%D7%A1%D7%95%D7%99-%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99-(%D7%9E%D7%A1%D7%90%D7%92%60).html]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. ייעצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ-Spa-Vip.co.il - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר מכיל עיסוי שוודי משחרר במיוחד אשר עורר לי את החושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. אין לי מילים לתאר את השינוי אותו עברתי, אומנם זה היה טיפול עיסוי שוודי ראשוני, חזרה השמחה לחיי, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Articles/Article12945.aspx]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם הרבה כוח, מחויכת ומוכנה להמשיך הלאה.

עיסוי האיורוודה הוא עיסוי המתאפיין ב ריח של קטורת, נרות ומוזיקה נעימה. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע מפנק מעל המגבת לאחר חשיפה של הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. נמרח שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, לאחר מכן תנועה עדינה ומלטפת מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. אחרי כמה תנועות עדינות עוברים לצד השני של הגוף, לאחר אותם תנועות על הצד השני מתחיל שילוב של לחיצות רפואיות מכיוון שהגוף התרגל למגע מפנק ומרגיע וזה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול ספא מפנק של עיסוי עד בית הלקוח.

אני לא האמנתי שדברים כאלו יכולים לקרות עד אשר חוויתי מסאז איורוודה מושקע כלכך, המעסה המקצועי אליי הביתה עם מגע שלא הכרתי שלא תיארתי שיכול להיות. אני ממליצה בחום לכל אחד ואחת אשר חשבו על עיסוי רפואי, [b][url=http://israblog.nana10.co.il/blogread.asp?blog=682132]מסאז[/url][/b]' או פינוק מטריף חושים בחג על Spa-VIP.co.il.

A few days ago I was pretty disappointed with my marriage with my significant other. Why you ask? Well, you know – stuff gets in the way.

I found great advice here: [url=http://www.marriedaffairguide.com]dating married online[/url] Advice.

It wasn’t about my wife. It was all about moi. I started checking the web for advice on how to change my marriage. I ended up landing on this website: [url=http://www.marriedaffairguide.com/dating-married-online-sites]married and dating[/url]

So I decided to meet her. She was Ladna. After a few too potent drinks, we left together– we did what we had to do – she asked for my phone at the end, which I took for a re-invite.

Thankfully there was a falisafe guide named: [url=http://www.marriedaffairguide.com/how-to-have-an-affair-married-seeking-affairs]married but lonely guide[/url]
