I sewed some new pillows for our family room to bring more red into our Christmas décor.
The JOY pillow was fun and easy to make. I picked a font on the computer, traced it onto some leftover muslin, then filled in the letters with a mix of bright red craft paint and textile medium. I stitched it into a simple pillow cover after the paint thoroughly dried (to make the piece easy to handle and in case I messed up lol.)
Our family room tree has a red and black buffalo check ribbon so I was happy to find this flannel fabric. I stitched some simple pillow slips and they are very soft and cosy. I'm still looking for an affordable pair of lamps to replace the turquoise ones I painted.
We bought the Natuzzi leather recliner from a neighbour who is downsizing and moving into their daughter's home. They were only asking $50 for it and it's real leather. So comfy and I love a mix of leather and white. With full grown guys in our home this recliner is a favourite spot to sit in front of the big screen TV. The white and turquoise pie cabinet in the corner is just there temporarily. I added a new piece to the dining room and had to do some furniture shuffling. I spent most of the weekend decorating for Christmas and rearranging. Still lots to do though. Wishing my American friends a great week leading up to your Thanksgiving.
