Did you guess iPHONE WITH HIPSTAMATIC CAMERA APP???? You're so clever! Bear with me while I play with my new tech toy. I promise that this won't turn into an all-hipstamatic-photo-all-the-time blog, but this pillow seemed like a good project for trying it out. Since I made this pillow on retreat last weekend, it officially counts as the 'something old' in this post (relatively speaking).
How sweet is that wee bunny?? This is a panel by Rabbit's Haven that a customer chose for me to make a pillow for her new baby's nursery. I embroidered some of the details for extra interest, used a sweet green tweedy print for the inner border and a coordinating floral print from the Rabbit's Haven line for the main border.
The idea is that this pillow will accent the baby's vintage-look quilt that I completed last November. I hope his mommy likes it! Here's what the quilt looks like:
So, I brought home MY new baby (yes, the iPhone 4) yesterday at 3 p.m. Already my friend freaked me out by facetiming me - and of course my son answered the phone because I didn't know how. Don't think I'm a complete dufus, but I didn't even know what facetime was and the guy at the Bell store that sold me the phone and plan never told me about it. Imagine, I can video chat with someone through this tiny magic screen? Shucks. But get a load of me: I already downloaded the hipstamatic camera app, took these shots, downloaded the free Flickr uploader app and wrote this blogpost for you and it's only really my first day at this! Plus, I have texted. Like 10 times.
I'm so hip. I better get myself some low rise jeans lest anyone think I'm an actual mom.
More retreat projects to come!
