For The Love of Burlap

My home looks like I have zillions of pets, the dust kitties are everywhere. The crazy thing is, these are not dust kitties, they are burlap fuzz. They seem to multiply over night, I am constantly walking around with my little dust buster vac.

I have been so busy lately that I have not had a chance to come up with any new designs and that drives me crazy, my mind just doesn't rest. Sunday I decided to just do a little creating and that seemed to settle my restlessness. I thought I would share with you two of my new creations. I have wanted to do a burlap rug for months now so finally I got one done. I also wanted a very basic pillow and I love the combination of the burlap and black details so here are two of my new items. I also thought it would be fun to do a giveaway. So just leave me a comment and you will be entered into the giveaway for the burlap pillow below

I hope everyone has a wonderful week,

LOVE, love, love them!!!! I know what you mean about being busy and not being able to work on new things. That is when I draw things out in a notebook. Once I draw it I feel like my brain can focus on something else.

I am forever vacuuming to keep the dust bunnies and the fabric kitties from taking over the house. I guess it's just one of the 'side-effects' of sewing.

Love these!! Wow! I completely understand too about not having the time to create that you'd like. I really love that rug - such a great idea! (and, of course, I love the pillow - I am slightly obsessed with pillows).

Happy week to you too (didn't walk today... will tomorrow ;) My vacuum is my best friend with Zeke and all his fluff here.

My burlap pillow from Petit Coterie arrived today. I love it. Love the little attached medallion and the Rosemary (?) sachet. BTW, do you make longer pillows around 36". I need one for my bed.

Let me know.
