One corner of my sewing table tends to be a catch-all for things that need to be fixed or completed - hems that need to be raised or lowered, shirts that need buttons replaced, and all manner of unfinished projects. I cleaned it off this afternoon and ran across a placemat I bought at Target before the holidays, intending to make a throw pillow out of it (thanks to the inspiration from Jellybean Junkyard). Rather than leave it in the pile to be forgotten until next January, I took 15 minutes to open up a seam, stuff it with some fluff left over for another project, and finish it off.
And look how nice it looks on the new couch! :o) It's now packed away with the rest of the Christmas decorations, all ready for next year's festivities.
