more typography progress

I finished writing the text onto my future pillowcase. The colorful pieces of fabric are quilting-cotton that I will use to make a 5 cm wide "bevel" (like a wall) around the orange part. The back of the pillow will be that yellow piece on the left, with a zipper installed.


Here's what I mean when I say that the pillow will have a "bevel" / "wall". 
Do you know of a better way to describe this type of pillow?
I'd love to add piping like that, too. But I think it might be too much for me all in one pillow.

On another note, I'd like to share with you the perils of my workplace.

People returning from overseas trips leave such temptations in the communal kitchen:


Here are my other everyday temptations - especially the pretzels on the left:


and my newly found biggest enemy - the chocolate wafers 
(here we call them waffles, how do you call them?)


I've not touched any of these nor other evil treats in three days and counting. As a seamstress I know my measurements and I want them to stay the way they are!

I'll leave you with Shugy's philosophy on how to live life, which I find to be very wise.
