Thanks to the boss at work...I ended up with the perfect idea for a new color scheme/pillow combination for the living room.
And thanks to Mom G-K's superb sewing skills...my plan became a reality!
As a housewarming gift, Julie purchased some awesome place mats for us (among other things). She suggested that they'd make great pillows and that she'd seen it done before with the exact same place mats.
Great work Mom G-K! Thank you!!!!
