This past weekend, I was feeling the need to sew, but without anything I needed to sew. I remembered the day we bought the futon sofa that's now in my room. In the store, we saw a vignette with a bunch of cool accent pillows. I started to buy some to go with our new piece of furniture, but I stopped myself, thinking "I can make that." But how often do I say that, and then never make it! The same thing has been happening with skirts. I've seen so many cute cotton skirts lately, but can't bring myself to buy them. Thankfully, this hasn't happened with all shopping--after all, I know my limits, so I still *allow* myself to buy shirts and such--things I know I can't make. How often does this happen to you--skipping a purchase with the intention of doing it yourself? And how often do you follow through?
Here's a little pillow I made to go on that sofa--it matches the fabric on my chair cushion. But it turned out looking better on the bed in the guest room.
