Spring Fever Pillow

I have had a severe case of Spring Fever this year, and I knew what my March pillow needed to be! Last week, we all went outside, on a particularly windy day, and had an absolute blast flying kites, of all shapes and sizes! It was so much fun to tire ourselves silly, running up and down the street!! Our faces were red from the wind, and our cheeks hurt from grinning so much- it was truly a fabulous afternoon... So that lead me to this pillow...



A reflection of our first kite flying of the year, and there needed to be some sunshine. Although, the day was not sunny; inside, we felt the warmth of being together and having a joyous time, thus the "sunshine"! I pieced some wonky "sun" blocks as a border for the kite adventures, and then just HAD to add a "sunbeam" ruffle that would further emphasize the joy we had! This pillow now sits on the chair in our living room - it's the first thing you can see as you walk in the house. And I like it that way!


I am entering this pillow in the Pillow Party over at Stitched in Color! Wish me the best of luck- it's my first offical entry. Either way, I am in love with my Spring Fever pillow and the memories it already holds :) Here's the link to follow along---
Have a fantastic day, and may it be filled with Spring Sunshine!
