Some of the Secrets...

... can now be revealed.

Not that they're so ultra-fabulous
that you'll all be overcome by shock and awe,
but just because I like a record for myself :D

It's no secret that I like to change the decor around in my house for different seasons and holidays.  My mom and sister are the same, though we all accessorize a bit differently.  Throw pillows make an easy and inexpensive visual change, so I made these for my sister along with a second set of covers.

It's hard to see in the picture, but this grassy one has a wonderful, fuzzy texture to it.
It's my favorite :D

The covers can be easily removed (no zippers for me - they have two overlapping pieces of fabric on the back.)

Both my sister and SIL really like red, so I put together a couple of very basic red aprons for my SIL...

... and my sister.

This one photographed kind of funny.  The greenish splotches are not nearly so prominent to the eye as they obviously were to the camera.  But hey, no one will know if your apron gets stained :D

I'm working on something else I can't show yet, as well as three projects my sister handed off to me (for her), so I'll post those later.

Ta-daa :D

Your family are very lucky indeed!!

I am still trying to get the hang of decorating my home, never mind changing it according to the seasons... ;-)

You are so talented! I love the pillow covers... I can't even begin to tell you what these would sell for in the touristy little boutiques that line Main Street here.

Oh, beautiful! I love that leaf throw pillow. These are the best kinds of gifts!
