Java love

I hate coffee, never had a cup of the stuff, love the smell, hate the taste, ICK! But I do love the bags that coffee comes in. Not the little waxed or plastic bags at the grocery stores but the big, burlap bags that the beans come in from the plantations before they are roasted. I had no idea that coffee beans were green - who knew.

Anyway, Kyle has been getting some coffee bags from the coffee roaster next door to their fire station in Emeryville. Well, I have been having fun playing around with the bags. The successful project a cool pillow - and it has a zipper!

There are 2 other projects I am attempting - one is not working out so no more will be said on that subject. The other is covering our ottoman.....just got a new electric staple gun for that puppy. I can't wait to get started. And I am also taking sewing lessons so hopefully my skills will improve.
