Lace and Buttons and a Pillow

Sometimes I just feel the need to start a project that I can complete in a short time.  I may have a list of things I am working on but this one thing can be completed in a short time.  Well that is what happened this afternoon, and this is what I made.

Pillow - $2.50 at TJMax,
it had some buttons at one time, only one left

Lace and linens I have gathered over the years

Lace from a box of goodies I received from Rebecca Ersfeld's giveaway a few months ago.

I arranged everything on the pillow, pinned it on and hand sewed it together.
Projects like this are "therapy" for me.

I added a few buttons from my button stash

Here it is in the corner in our dining room.
It is nice to do a small project between the big sewing and painting projects on my list.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by big projects or you just want to do something creative and see the finished
project, pick something simple that will brighten your home and your day.
