Happy Sunday all! First I want to appologize if you’re a blogger and I haven’t been by to comment this month and if you’re a regular reader and have noticed my comment section is on the fritz. (Scroll to the bottom of the post and I will explain both issues). Now on to funner things….I decided to make a fall pillow for the front porch and stumbled upon this cute as ever owl pattern and knew right away it would look perfect on the adirondack chair my son made me.
I went to my fabric stash and picked out contrasting colors that I thought would look nice together and also feel like fall, used Wonder Under fusible web to turn the fabric pieces into iron ons, and then grabbed a ready made pillow cover from Hobby Lobby. The pillow cover has a zipper in the back so you can use an existing pillow form you already have at home. When it came to the white dots in the eyes I used a white fabric marker, it seemed easier than trying to cut a tiny piece of iron on fabric. You can download this owl pattern here. All you need to do is iron the fusible web to your fabric choices, cut them out, and iron them onto the pillow cover. It couldn’t be easier and no sewing involved.
I really like how it turned out. I also made other changes to the front porch for fall and I’ll be back later to show you those. Now, why I need to apologize….
First: I have Verizon for my home phone, cell phone, and internet. The last two months I’ve had a $700+ internet bill, my cell and home phone are constantly dropping calls and I couldn’t figure out what was going on. After several calls to Verizon and countless hours trying to figure it out the technician finally told me Verizon moved the direction the tower signal was pointing so a neighboring town would get better reception, so things wouldn’t work well for me anymore. My internet was constantly buffering and eating up data (I pay for 40 gigs a month and was truly using under 10 but because of the buffering it just kept trying to connect and costing money.)
Well I told them I thought it was pretty crappy that they didn’t have to notify existing customers of the change. The tech told me I could get out of my contract at no cost. I informed him I wasn’t under contract, and he said then I guess you should find a new carrier. That didn’t help pay the exorbitant costs I’ve incurred that last two months though.
So I’ve spent a week trying to find someone who has interned in my area, which is an impossible task, here in the sticks there is no internet.
Second: After some changes in WordPress my Comment Reply is no longer working. I do reply to every comment so if you’re no longer getting my replies will you please let me know (I’m searching out a solution). You can always check the comment section where you left me a message and my follow up comment will be right underneath. So I apologize for this issue too. I am trying to find a solution for internet but at this point it looks like moving is the only option, and that’s not happening any time soon.
