Sewing not cleaning

I have been trying to finish a few projects to send to the new shop so this household looks very much like 'call before you come to visit me or I will not let you in'. Tomorrow has to be a cleaning day or else... Instead of showing you messy corners of my home I chose some close-ups of my finished objects. Clever me. I had a piece of elk fabric lying around and I had been wondering what I bought that toile print for? So why not combine them and let the Scandinavian travel to Paris. (Do you think anyone in a small town will buy elk-goes-to-Paris pouches?). I've been admiring this log cabin pillow so I wanted to make my own version. Acctually I made it for my own sofa, but with this shop project coming up I'm sending that as well. Need to make more, it was great fun combining fabric strips.

Thank you all for the kind comments about my robot jacket in my guestbook! I'm planning to make wall hangings for the boysroom with robots, rockets and...
When I have the time.

at my house, every day is a 'call before you come to visit me or I will not let you in' day! :)

I like your cushion very much, especially the little bird applique.

Umm, that pillow and the elk pouches are quite fantastic. I would buy the 'elk goes to paris' pouches, and I'm from a small town!!
I love the fabrics you used to make the pillow, the composition is just right.
