New Pillows

Howdy!  Things are great here at the Peele household!  We have been busy with life, baby, and some projects here and there. I wanted to get some projects here on the blog to show ya.  I have to admit, I didn't make them myself. I just had the vision and my friend Katie put them together!

Anyway, I bought this fabric a few months ago to make some curtains for my kitchen.  You see, our kitchen window looks out over our BEAUTIFUL hydrangias...but then sadly you see the neighbors house too.  At night it was a little awkward, so I decided it needed to be covered ;)


I had been planning on making those forever, but never got around to it until recently.  I'll post pics soon :)  I LOVED how it brought it all the colors I love and made everything in my kitchen and living room area POP!!  Thankfully, I had a bunch of fabric left over to make some pillows.  I am just not confident enough in my sewing skills yet to make them myself. So I pulled in reinforcements :)

Yesterday I headed to Katie's house to visit her and Turner.  She and Smith are great friends :)  


Look how much fun they are having!  P.S. Turner is one of the happiest little baby girls I've ever met!


Here's Katie showing her mad sewing skills.  She even taught me how to sew on a zipper! So these pillows look professional.  


And here they are all done!  I love how they turned out.  They are perfect.


And here they are in our living room.  I thought I'd show you a real life picture of what our house looks like right now.  Stuff on the kitchen table, the pack n play out (although, I did put it away today), the computer out, the hubs legs...you know.  Our house is way more lived in these days.  I am a stay at home mom now, so it gets a little messy :)

And lastly, a picture of the growing little man!!


Ok, maybe two pics :)


He is so big now! Smith is 7 weeks and 3 days.  I think he's about 10 pounds now.  We go to the dr. next week :) He's been sleeping through the night for the last 3 weeks.  And I am SOO grateful!  We are getting plenty of sleep here at our house!  Hope everyone is doing well!
