Pillow Talk

One of my all time FAVORITE movies is Pillow Talk.  Come on, Rock Hudson, Doris Day, love, laughter - who woudn't love this movie!  If you have not seen it YOU MUST!!! 
 And speaking of Pillow's another one you MUST SEE!

Happy Days Are Here Again!

Any day when we get to receive fabric at the shop is a HAPPY DAY!  We NEVER tire of seeing new fabric, and the joy NEVER diminishes when we cut fat quarters from a brand new bolt of fabric.  Well yesterday our UPS man played a trick on us.  He came into the shop carrying two SMALL packages :( and had us sign for them.  Well we were expecting a large delivery, so a little disappointed we told him that "maybe you will want to call in sick tomorrow because you should have a truckload of packages for us."  He replied, "oh, tomorrow is it, are you sure?" and walked out the door.  We stood there puzzled because we checked to see how many packages his little computer said we were signing for, and it showed only two packages.  Next thing we know he is walking in the door with NINE VERY LARGE BOXES of what else?  FABRIC!  Over 80 bolts of fabric to be exact!  The more than 80 bolts included fabric from the lines by Moda called Sunkissed, Charlevoix and Chrysalis, and the cutest cupcake fabric EVER by Alexander Henry!  Our UPS man is a trickster, but we love him anyway.  Yes, happy days are here yet again!

Fun Pillow Tutorial

I love dresden plates - they are so fun to make and super duper easy with the Easy Dresden ruler, and so I was excited to see a different use for one of my favorite rulers!  Freckled Whimsy has a great tutorial to make this pillow

I cannot wait to make this!
