Gumdrops for birthdays

I finally have time to blog about the gumdrop pillows.  More on the reason I've been absent later.....
Here's the unwrapping of the pillows.  Because of their size, I wrapped them in queen size bed sheets.
ONE for Lu Lu............

and ONE for Cece................

And they look great in their rooms

ta da!  So cute.  Now their little brother might need one that has baseballs and basketballs.

In other news, I got a new job!!!!!!!!  The interview process was really long and my nerves are/were fried.   But further to that, my assistant resigned while I was interviewing so I was doing her job and my job while waiting to hear about my new job.  Needless to say, I'm very tired.  Finally, my last day at the old company was Friday and I have two weeks of vacation till I start the new one.  Hurray!!  While I'm off I'm making some work outfits and visiting a friend in NYC!  Yep, that means, fabric shopping!


  1. These are fantastic & very thoughtful gifts. I've been wanting to make these pillows and you have inspired me to get sewing...
    Congrats on your new job!

  2. I'm so glad you liked them. The kids LOVE them. I didn't post the boy one I made but he loves his too and rolls it all over the house, apparently.
