#437...wool felt state pillows

I recently helped my sister Sarah construct these canvas backed wool felt state pillows. She wanted to make them to give as gifts. We blanket-stitched a heart onto specific cities on each state. We had fun making them, and are thinking of making some to sell at a local craft market this upcoming fall.

#436...persian rug in the kitchen

Over the year's I've tried a lot of different rugs in my kitchen. Recently, I moved the rug from under my dining table (see it here) into the kitchen and I've been liking it so far. It is a vintage Persian that I got several years ago from It is easy to vacuum, lays flat, and does not move around when people and dogs run through the room. 
I'm hoping to enact some dramatic ceiling and glass front cabinet changes in this room toward the end of this year, so I thought I'd go ahead and document the kitchen as it looks today.
