Because When I Arrive, I, I'll Bring the Fire

For the past year (hmmm, two years maybe?) we've been using turkey pillowcases in the living room.

Yes. Turkey as in THANKSGIVING PILLOWCASES ALL YEAR ROUND.

Now that it's a new year and I have my head out of my ass (it's true, it was up there all of 2008), I took a little time today while both boys were at school to make this...


... it's totally wonky. The colors don't match. The seams aren't straight. But OHFUCKINGWELL it only took me 45 minutes start to finish and hot damn it feels so nice to make something without pressure. And I think it's pretty.

I love those colors together! I think every room needs some red and if you can add yellow and blue so much the better. It's wonderful and cozy. Yeah you!
