Pastures of Heaven


Yesterday I went to the Salinas Valley to revisit a home that I have done some sewing for through a very talented designer, Cindy Hattersley. You can see more of her work on her blog, Villa Cantina.

I was near Castle Rock which is mentioned in John Steinbeck’s book Pastures of Heaven.( I need to read that book.)
I got some pictures of some of my work: pillows, window seat and window shade.

Another window seat with pillows and shade.

A slipcovered chair with pleats. Oh how I love pleats on a slipcover.

A pleated chair cushion:

And although I made the large pillows in this last picture, I am including it mostly because I love the bird nest paintings above the bed.

 I came home with two pages of notes and measurements for some new projects. Yea!

I'm so blown away by your creative genius, Katie. I'd absolutely love curling up on the window seat or the slipcovered armchair with a good book and a cup of tea. Each spot looks so inviting and luxurious.

You do beautiful work. I make Slipcovers in North Carolina. It's wonderful admiring others creativity!
