New Hmong Pillow

A few posts back I mentioned possibly designing another pillow for my Hmong collection, and I did! Hope you like. 🙂

I also have one more pillow to share and hope to have it up by tomorrow. =]

Good Night WordPressers!

Caydi Doll Pillow Series – “May Flowers”

Part 5

April showers do bring May flowers…and Caydi’s new pillow!

I used a range of charmeuse satin with a cotton flower print for this project. This pillow took me about 6 hours to make but I had so much fun making it. I had music playing in the background and was just having a sweet crafty sewing session! xP Hope ya’ll enjoy. 🙂

Tiny Pixel’s First Love

Today at work I listened to a patient’s beautiful story of how he met his first love. They however went their separate ways and it wasn’t until 70 years later did they meet again. They married and spent a wonderful 14 months together before losing her last November. I couldn’t help but be touched by such a story. The best part of hearing this story was that he smiled the whole time…still so much in love. I couldn’t help but smile back.

Coming home and still having this sweet story in my thoughts, I decided to whip out the old umbrella lights right away to help light up my pillows I had wanted to share last night. Waiting until Monday just seemed so ridiculous now. So WordPressers, I’d like to share with you “First Love”, named after his story.

Nobody ever forgets their first love…and hearing his story just confirmed it even more. 🙂

Etsy

Originally when I designed these pillows I wanted to create something special to relate to my husband and I. Honestly I have to say it seemed like all him and I ever did was talk on the phone…hence the design. 🙂 Nothing better than late night phone conversations to the point where you are doing nothing but listen to each other breathe and it’s so worthwhile already. =P I hope some day when I’m old and grey I can tell people about our story too and not just about the phone part. Lol.

I hope everyone will have the chance to meet that special someone because life is too short to spend it alone.

Good night WordPressers.

Bubble Tea Love

In my “About” section, I mentioned I enjoyed bubble tea and I wanted to make something to honor it. So long live the bubble tea! Here is a pillow I designed for all the bubble tea lovers!

If you don’t know what bubble tea is I highly recommend you try it. They are also called boba tea. Depending on where you purchase it, the drink may be in a smoothie form or a tea drink form. I prefer the smoothie if I have a choice. 🙂 At the bottom of the drink are the “bubbles” and you can slurp and drink them up with a big old straw they give you. It’s a great little sweet drink to have on a hot day…and after a bowl of pho! Oh goodness…pho is another story too. >.<

Find this pillow on Etsy, 8×8 or 15×15

A few post back I talked about the draft snake I made for a coworker. I did give it to her and she absolutely loved it. Yay!
