I drove 16 hours straight home on Monday from Delray, and those last two hours were the worst!! I was ok when it was daylight, but dark made it hard to keep my eyes open! I arrived home about 1-1:30 Tuesday morning and so, no... I have not had time to to finish another UFO... 3 next week! oops!!
What I am about to share is based only on my experience and preferences. I use feather/down pillow forms as the base of my pillows because they hold their shape over time much better than a poly pillow. I also cut the fabric the same size of the pillow form (18" form, 18" fabric square). This insures that my finished pillow has a full and smooth look.
Here are a few pictures of the "project" that Brent and I worked on while I was down there. This is the front part of his garage that has been converted to a workroom for him. We still need to do some painting, and since I have come home he has added an extension drop leaf to the work table so he can roll out fabric. Check out that neat sewing machine which he used for the leather shoes that he makes. I LOVE that machine!! That's one I don't have!
