Not Quite a Quilt

 My dear husband is usually morally opposed to throw pillows.  I managed to convince him that pops of color are necessary when staging a house for resale.  I am quite the expert now you see, after watching over a dozen episodes of the house doctor.  So blue is the accent color is the master bedroom, it goes with the quilt.  Bonnie Hunter's Roll Roll, Cotton Boll I do believe.  I had two pillows, but design is supposed to be done in odd numbers.  See how much I've learned from Netflix? 

While the open house was going on yesterday, I found myself out and about killing time.  Joann's was near the deli where I was enjoying lunch, and so I found some brightly colored fabric on clearance.  I really hated the brown pillows that came with the couches.  Honestly, I think that they came with the last couches, not with these. 
See how much happier they will look?  I've got them sewn up, it is just a matter of stuffing the pillows inside and then hand stitching the last side closed.  I think I've run out of home improvement shows to watch on Netflix.  Maybe I will enjoy a movie while I sew.  
I'm afraid to get all my sewing supplies out again, but I don't have Tuesday's block done.  If I am smart, I will whip up the next three weeks in one shot.  After that we will (hopefully) have closed on the new place and I can start setting up my sewing space.  Kurt is anxious to start painting, but honestly, my fabric is important too.  Turns out that switching houses is exhausting.

Hopefully everything moves along quickly. Yes, moving and all the things associated with it are exhausting. Hope you are able to relax with a little stitching today.

Those new pillow covers will be a HUGE improvement!! Getting the next three TT blocks done is a good idea. Here's hoping you can swing it!

It certainly is exhausting especially as you have a young family.

Love the new pillows and hope you’ll be back to making a mess again soon!

Selling and moving are a pain. We just did that last year and I hope it will be awhile before we do it again. Good Luck.

Hope your home sells fast so you can just enjoy the new one and not have to keep up the previous one... selling a house is not a lot of fun I think... once you have the house staged it is a waiting game for a decent offer... here's to hoping you get a great one that doesn't take a lot of consideration to accept too :) Kathi

Your staging looks amazing! Good luck!

That staging looks amazing. Hopefully you had a very successful open house with lots of competing offers to contemplate afterwards!

I'm a bit behind on my blog reading, so hopefully as I read this, you have sold your house and secured your new house. Moving is a tremendous amount of work!!! It took me quite a bit to settle into my new sewing room a few years ago, but it was worth it! GOOD LUCK!!!
