Home is where the heart is....

Hello my lovely blog friends :)

Hope you're having a great Friday so far.  

Well, tomorrow is the big DAY for my cousin.  It's her wedding day!!! I'm so excited for her!!  I just finished her second present!! I thought that a pillow for her couch would be so appropriate along with the Life quilt for her unborn baby boy.  Don't you think? 

My cousin, had decided a couple of years ago to leave the big city, and live in a smaller one, which is around 200 Klm from Athens.   This decision of her, was the inspiration for the cute little pillow I've made for her couch.  Also, I was inspired by this gorgeous illustration I had posted about a long time ago, and of course by the designs of my favorite artist Kajsa Wikman. Can't you tell?? !!! I think it turned out really nice!!! 

Home is where the heart is...






I'm really sorry for the bad quality pictures, but I've finished it too late, and all the nice light had gone!!! And tomorrow we will be leaving very early... so I won't have the time to take decent pictures!! And I was so excited and wanted to share it with you lovelies. :) What do you think? Won't she love it??

Also, my week's project the re-organizing thing got a little postponed due to shopping shoes for the wedding {it was the first sales day today, and I seized the day!!!!hehehehe} and making this little cutie.  But the sewing room is almost done.. It need some final touches, but I can now share some pics with you.  Everything is still in it's place, although I was in there for hours, cutting and fusing and sewing!!! This is the top secret!! To put everything back in to place, after you've finished with your project!! Right? But don't you get bored to do that? I just want to take pictures of it and admire it after finishing it, not put everything in it's place.... 

So here's one corner of the sewing room...



I've tried to reorganize my fabric stash by major color shades!! And you were so right!!! I did realize that my stash is not so tiny as I thought.... Now the dining room is still unpresentable but I have high hopes of finishing it next week { when I'll get back to work :-( }.

Anyway, I have to prep myself for tomorrow, which means maybe put on a facial mask, or even polish my toes... so we'll talk again:)

I'm wishing you all a lovely weekend, and hope that it won't be so hot like here!!! uugghhh!!! I might be wearing my swimming suite under my dress tomorrow... hehehehe:)

  2. That pillow is stinkin' adorable - if she doesn't love it you can pass it to me for sure! Now that I'm almost caught up I'm hoping to make a few thinks from Scandi. Stitches. I feel like I want to wait until it gets cold though (I'm such a nerd :) I'm probably going to start with the little...I think she calls them 'tomtes' (?) in the book....or the little houses. They're my favorites.

  22. Hello everyone. I'm Eleni's cousin, for whom this lovely pillow was made and I really need to say some things. First of all I want to thank my dearest cousin for this unique, adorable and full of love pillow-present.It really means so much to me, especially now that I've known all the story behind the presents for me and my baby, because i have to admit that although I've seen pictures of it on the facebook profile of sewhappiness, I had no idea that it was meant to be mine and even more that it was inspired of my life choices.All that makes it even precious to me.Thank you Eleni, thank you very very much, love you girl deeply...
