These pillows for John's sister Chris are finished. These are both 24" by 24" and will be part of the window seat in her dining room. Chris uses color the way I use black t-shirts. So it's always fun to work on something for her because her color sense is so different from mine.
This iron is a Christmas gift for the studio, and I am pretty excited about this. It's the Rowenta Steamium and kind of futuristic-looking, isn't it? I've had two other Rowenta's, each lasting for over 10 years. Considering that an iron is something I use as often as and in conjunction with my sewing machines, I'm happy with their lifespans.
The heat control of this older iron has come off - broken plastic parts - so that this iron now has one temperature: HOT! Also check out the number of steam holes on this new iron. There's supposed to be 400!
In the true spirit of the season, I won't use my new iron until December 26!
