Working on those Pillows!!

Yes, I am still here.  Some of you have even had a comment or two from me.  Just haven't had the motivation or time to complete any projects to blog about!

I have been steadily applying for positions and contacting everyone I can think of to let them know I am looking for employment again!!  I have a couple leads with people I know, one in particular I am very fond of and hope that it works out.  While tossing and turning at 2am one MORNING, her name popped into my head and I made sure that I would contact her the next day, then I went to sleep peacefully!  Found her name and work phone number on the internet very easily (thank you God!!).  There may be a newly created part time accounting position assisting her open around December so we are going to lunch later this month to see if it would be something I am interested in.  I feel like it is the Lord's hand guiding me and I continue to apply for jobs and see where He leads me!

I did take some time to search for fabric that was cheap to make pillows for my new to me sofa that I blogged about HERE.  I found this fabric at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $2 a yard!  It is very heavy and I am still shocked that I got it for that price.  It has a golden brown pattern depending on the nap on a dark red background.  I bought 4 yards which should make several pillows for $8.

I really like the color against the sofa.  It is a little hard to see without a flash!

I will take a sample and match it to some stripe material and hopefully something contrasting to keep it interesting.  Just takes time and patience to find bargains!

I had started working on this round end table before all the turmoil around here!  Here is a sneak peek at it.  I'm not done with it as I think it needs more distressing on the doors and then another coat of glazing to tone down the gold.

Sorry, another dark picture.  Too early in the morning here!

Now I am off this morning to visit and check up on my aunt in Quincy, IL.  Will be home tomorrow evening.

Thank you so much to everyone for all the kind comments of support you have given me.  It is amazing how much support I have felt from people I have never met in person.  It is truly a wonderful group of people out here in the decorating blog world and again, I thank you all!!

Have a wonderful day and I will hopefully be blogging more soon!
