Sewed Three Pillows in a Row

Now that we’re back from vacation, the countdown is on for my pillow sale, and that means I need to sew like crazy.  We got back late last night, and with the time change it felt even later, so the kids slept in and had a very lazy morning.  But not me!  My goal is to have twenty pillows for the Art in the Garden sale, so I need to get good and fast at sewing.  But there are a lot of steps involved.  After the many steps involved in just getting the design onto the pillows (silk-screen, hand painting, or Spoonflower), next I need to make the pillow piping, sew on the piping, sew in the zipper, and then sew the whole thing together.  It takes about an hour for me to sew a pillow.  That’s not that great, but I’m getting better all the time, and today, amazingly, I was able to make three in a row.  Woo hoo!  Hopefully I can do it again tomorrow.  We’ll see…
