In case you have been following my NAJOWRIMO, you will note that I didn’t post anything yesterday. Robert and I were at the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum all day, from 9 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon and by the time we stopped in to Denny’s for our ritual dinner after the Depot, we were exhausted and I was in no mood to write anything.
This morning, the sky was filled with beautiful, white fluffy clouds and streaks from airplane contrails. Just a perfect beginning to the day. There for a while, I thought we might be in store for a bit of rain, but the sky cleared up and the clouds drifted away.
I have fought and fought the technique of creating a pleated ruffle for the pillows I’m making for the Depot’s gift shop. For something so simple, it’s been a real pain for me. I have finally found a method that works! I’ve been using my ironing board, a piece of tape-covered card stock and straight pins. It’s slow, but it works.
I have four pillows to add ruffle to — each pillow is 18″Wx20″H for a total of 76″ of ruffle per pillow. I don’t think I have enough cut and hemmed for all four pillows, so will just work on one pillow at a time until I get them all finished. I think they’re going to look very nice. At least I hope they will.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
