Today I made a large pillow for mt bench. I know it looks a little lumpy but I don't mind. I have only basted it closed so that I can change my mind and do something different. I may take the stuffing out and just get a body pillow or something to use instead. I am going to leave it as is for now.  The neighbor kids use my porch to wait for the school bus. They will probably be using my bench more than I will any way. They won't mind a lumpy pillow to set on while they wait.

This is where I wanted to put the bench but it is a little two long,
So these chairs will set here nicely. They will get a coat of paint later on when it is warm enough to paint outside. I have not decided what color to paint them. They have been kind of green for a very long time. Maybe forever. I might paint them blue or red but maybe green again. 

I found some old curtains ( valances ) hiding in a closet that will be good for the windows around the porch. I was still awake at 2 am this morning so I was up prowling about..and dug out these valances out of a tote of odd stuff. Sometimes I think I should just get rid of all that odd stuff but, then if I had done that then I would not have curtains for the porch.. Not sure it needs curtains but now that I have them I might as well see how it works out.

Today has not been a very productive day. Probably because I was still awake at 2 am.
I did make the pillow and two smaller pillows form the leftover fabric for the chairs when they are done. I glued the outer layer on my large design wall..Now fabric will stick to it without having to pin...as long as it is not to heavy I guess.

That is about all I have managed to do. I had a list of things I wanted to get done but I simply do not have the energy. I was going to load the next client quilt and piece a block or two on a project for myself. After using the spray glue with out gloves...well my fingers a kind of sticky. I am going to have to get something a bit stronger than soap and cold water to get it off. LOL
