Early Morning Photos

My Feline Photo AssistantsAfter staying in bed long enough to watch another beautiful sunrise, I decided the sky was so beautiful and the light so lovely, I'd take the new pillows outside for photos. My two Feline photo assistants were there to help.

Since surveilling the deck–and the roof beyond if he can get away with it–has become part of Johnny's morning routine, it was a win-win idea. Grace doesn't like the cold deck, but the morning's excitement was enough to bring her outside to join us.

Early Morning Sky ... and my completed Pillow Shams

Scrappy Triangles Pillow ShamsThe pillow covers are 24 inches square, quilted simply in-the-ditch, backed with an old Hoffman Challenge fabric and bound with the darkest purple used in the half-square triangles.

They'll be going onto my bed, but these photos make me want to make something like them for the deck chair ... it looks so much cozier with quilty pillows.

Beautiful! They look great out on your deck chair - now all they need is a matching lap quilt for these chilly mornings.

I love the photo of those pillow on your deck. I love the privacy of your deck. Mine has a railing all the way around. Difference of being in TN vs. the southwest, I guess. I doubt there's a dab of adobe around here anywhere!

Those pillows look amazing! And I agree about something quilty for the chair, it's a great backdrop for showcasing quilts.
