My friends are constantly teasing me about my coffee swilling, night owl tendencies. I’m
glad lucky that I don’t need as much sleep to function as some people (ahem Ben and Manda). That being said, I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning, the babe woke really early & in effect I got a paltry 2 hours of sleep. I’ve walked into the wall twice today, keep forgetting simple words and decided several hours ago not to do anything involving a chef knife or rotary cutter today. Oh and apparently, at some point last night, someone snuck into our houseand replaced our kid with a little angry spitting pterodactyl, so that’s been fun.
The bright spot? This pillow! I’m working with the oh-so adorable Rashida Coleman-Hale ( of I heart linen fame) on some fun little projects right now. She was sweet enough to send me a bundle of fabrics from her new collection Washi for Timeless Treasures (On sale here.) How adorable are these? I have a mild obsession with art supplies and Washi tape ( Japanese tissue/ paper tape) is almost always on my desk or in my purse… and if we’re being honest, at least two different colors:) Throw in the millions of pretty/ funky/ cool designs and its easy to see why Rashida chose to incorporate them into her fabric line! The mixers are really dreamy as well, today my favorite is the cream triangle. Yesterday it was the turquoise star flower. The hand on these is incredibly soft, I’m thinking the gray floral print would make a darling sundress for a certain little dinosaur I know:)
I spent an evening playing with the different prints and my Accuquilt cutter. Its so nice being able to precision cut fussy shapes in a fraction of the time it take with rulers. I’ve got a really fun idea forming involving a ton of those little flower shapes, once I find some extra time. Here’s a quick shot of the back, I went for a quick envelop closure, my go-to pillow back. I’m already planning the mate to this pillow…. maybe if I just have one more cup of coffee I can use the rotary cutter a little bit.
