I'm in a Pink Pillow Mood

I've been thinking about sewing lately, as "winter time" seems to be the time of year that I sew. Today, when I went outside it certainly felt like winter where I live. Here are some pink fabric yo yo-d pillows that I made last winter.

This pillow I did not make. It was a gift and smells lovely. There is a little lavender tucked inside.

Not a pillow, but to me this wall is cozy. It is the end wall of my church studio. The gable was purchased at an auction. There were actually two and I was bidding against someone else. It turned out in the end we each wanted only one, so we split the final bid. Had we known this, we would not have bid each other up!!!
