So, remember this Happy Pillow?
Ok, well I made it out of an extra Dresden Plate I had just sitting around.
It's all hand-stitched and cool stuff like that.
And I LOVE it.
And it's staying in my house, with me, which I love even more.
Well, turns out I entered it in a pillow contest over at Sew, Mama, Sew.
Remember when I was trapped inside my house for days on end?
Yeah, that's when I did it.
That's when I entered my Happy little pillow cover.
Here's a funny story.
I checked Sew, Mama, Sew just about every day to see if my pillow made it as a
"Pillow of the Day,"
which is the contest I thought I had entered.
Well, yesterday came and went, and my Happy pillow still hadn't made it, and therefore, my hopes were dashed.
BUT WAIT... there is a Pillow Contest as well?
My hopes are back to undashed!
Yesterday was the unveiling of the Top 20 pillows for the "Words to Live By" category, and I had to wait until today to see if my hand-stitched ray of sunshine made it.
I made it into the Top 20!
So now there's a voting thing happening, and people can go vote for their 2 favorite pillows.
... GO VOTE!
...and if it happens to be for my pillow, well, that would just be fantastic now wouldn't it?
Here's the part that makes it kinda cool:
I told my Hubby about not making Pillow of the Day.
I was bummed.
Like everysinglemorning when I checked the website.
For about 2 weeks.
I think he was getting a tad sick of
hearing about it the disappointment.
Then I told him about the actual contest that was happening and how I still had a glimmer of hope.
I'm sure he was just as pumped as me.
Well, anyways, this morning I caught him checking the website to see if my pillow made it...
(and that's how I know I did something kinda cool.)
