Do you ever fall asleep on the couch while watching TV at night with your hubby? Please tell me I'm not the only one that does this. Anyways, a couple of weeks ago, that was happening...and in the middle of my almost sleep state, I looked over at my husband who was reading the paper. A picture caught my eye, and I drowsily said, "Save that paper for me." He thought I was sleep-talking, I'm sure. So he asked why, and I told him that even though I was half-asleep, I was getting inspired by that picture. You just never know when or where inspiration will hit!
Since it's a new month, which means it's a new round of the Blogger's Pillow Party, I thought, Why not? I'll go 3 for 3 (here's my January and February entries) and use this inspiration to make a pillow.
I'm calling it "Orange Slice," and I used Amanda Jean's Ticker Tape tutorial. Here's a picture of the pillow with the inspirational newspaper.
I really wanted to try something I've never done before, so I added a binding to it, and I love the extra little something it brings to the pillow.

And my oldest daughter posing with it.
I used a 12x16 pillow form, Robert Kaufman Kona in Medium Gray, the binding is a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton that I had leftover from this quilt, and the scraps are just random things I had. I've really been wanting to work with this color combination for a while, and I'm glad I did! This was a fun little project.
