|Arts, Beats, and Eats! Lots of hot weather,|
but no pillows (that I saw!)
Next on our whirlwind weekend of fun was a trip to IKEA, a family favorite. We are not obsessed with IKEA to the extreme that our house is starting to look like a catalog but we do pick up a few things here and there. Lamps, organization supplies, a couple bookshelves, things like that. Besides selling a lot of meatballs, they all sell a lot of throw pillows. Some are made from your basic cotton, which is generally what I have been working with. They are completely stitched and can be thrown in the washer - simple, easy. Others were pillow covers with either zippers or button holes. The pillows covers were made with lighter and heavier fabrics and anywhere in between. It was interesting just to get some ideas. IKEA also sells some nice fabrics with interesting designs. If I work my way up to curtains, I may have to make another trip. We of course had to get meatballs, that is everyone except for Mimi, who feasted on tube noodles with parmesan cheese. It just seemed logical to spend a really hot day checking out pillows and eating meatballs. And in case you were wondering, yes, Kevin brought the camera.
|And more pillows!|
|No, she does not eat meatballs! |
No, she did not put sauce on those noodles!
Other new things on the horizon for 715 Pillows. I started a Facebook page to promote my blog and possible future business. From this post on, I am going to limit how often I post about 715 Pillows on my personal Facebook page. Although, I will give people a friendly reminder from time to time. I am going to post fabric pictures, project pictures, and staff photos. I may even go so far as to host a few contests for loyal followers. As always, I love all your ideas, comments, and suggestions. Keep them coming!
