Sew...that's my girl!

 I'm sew done with the pillows for this room!
Don't worry...I have at least 3 rooms to go.
I needed something for the king-sized, 4 foot tall, bubble gum pink
headboard that seemed to literally "take over" our
Master bedroom.

 And it involved two more bold patterns within the 
same color scheme....

I made serious, fast, friends with Marie at JoAnn.
She told me she didn't like the floral fabric with the headboard
fabric until I added the stripes.  She said, "your style must be
REALLY eclectic" eclectic was a bad word.

  She kind of bugged me with her opinions at first, but
after awhile she grew on me.

I sewed the pillow cover that doesn't require a zipper,
much easier, kind of like an envelope.

Found the fabric at JoAnn...
....slapped down a 40% off coupon on the register, 
and headed on out.

Enough sewing....

....after watching another episode of "Bethenny Ever After"
I'm announcing my girl crush!

I just love her!
So much so, I am putting a pic on my sidebar to be
the first to say "That's my girl!"
...I have to meet her.
I follow her on FB and entered the contest to meet her on her
website and if any of you have any connections to me meeting her,
that would be fab!  I'm not going to take it the stalking level, 
I mean seriously, she lives in New York, but
if she comes here for a book signing...I will meet her.
Or, I will die trying.

So fabulous! Mary, I told her I wanna hire you to give me a lesson! Never had Home-Ec in HS as I was always taking Spanish instead... so I have zero experience. I'm LOVIN these pillows and want to make some!

Why can't we live closer to each other? Would to have sew dates and craft nights with you? The pillows look great. I cannot wait to see your house one of these trips home. Miss you.
