I enjoyed a lovely heap of ribbon spaghetti here in the studio yesterday as I put together the last of the kits. Delicious! I was having so much fun playing with these fabrics, that I had to sew something else up. Just folding and assembling was like dangling a golden carrot.
Our love-chain is romantically dangling across our bedframe currently. I am a pillow addict. My husband just proposed that we put the pillows in "storage" in the attic or something, because our bed is never made and they end up all over, just causing more clutter. Can you imagine? And he was totally serious. I was like uhhh-right. He may not suggest that if he knew those pillows cost more than most of the furniture in our house. Eh-hem. But no need to start that conversation. Instead I thought I would make another one.
But this is no ordinary pillow. This, my darlings, is a love letter pillow. It is all funky pieced in the front with kit scraps and the back has an "envelope" for leaving sweet thoughts...or a grocery list. I'll be leaving a note for my sweetie..something about how much I love him blah blah and how sweet he is to put up with my blah blah bright colors blah endless making blah blah, but how waking up next to him (in a sea of pillows) is the greatest joy of my life, blabity-blah. Love, me.
You kit-customers out there will be getting your love-chain-to-be very soon. They are all ready for shipping (UK and Canada be patient, please, you're great!). But I hope all will be inspired to make a little love letter pillow for yourself or your sweeties, little and big.
(OH and don't ask what paint color I used in our bedroom, because that color is totally photoshopped in as I am still trying to decide how to cover the dead-green current color...but you can cast your vote if you like it.)
