Cuteness factor overload! I am so excited about how this bucket tote turned out! Turns out our medium sized bucket tote pairs perfectly with a block from the Book Nerd quilt pattern. We got the Book Nerd quilt pattern in the shop a few weeks ago at the recommendation of a customer (you guys know the best stuff!!) I was so excited to try it, but I knew a whole quilt was not going to fit in my schedule right now. So I decided to try it on a bucket tote - it would be the perfect spot to corral...

I finally made pillows for my bed and I have to show you! I've been helping a lot of people pick out pillow fabric lately, and it got me itching to make new pillows for my bed at home. I've wanted to add pillows to pull everything together in our master bedroom for a long time, but never quite had the right fabric combos. Until now! These are some of my very favorites, and I am so glad I get to see them everyday! The large pillows in the back are king size and are covered with Indigo Rustica Chambray...

We call it Formation and it is my take on a patriotic quilt that is a bit more subtle than your typical themed quilt. I've always loved the red, white and blue color combo. It's so clean and classic, but I've never found the perfect patriotic fabric or quilt that spoke to me....

We got a huge stack of yarn dyed woven fabrics in the shop recently - Carolina Gingham, Manchester and Essex, which are some of my all time favorite fabrics. Classics that mix and match with other fabrics or look amazing on their own. Having these fabrics in my stash just makes me happy! But I also want to see and use them everyday! Because they are yarn dyed before the fabric was woven they are pretty on both sides, making kitchen towels and cloth napkins the perfect project. Guaranteed to be used and appreciated (by me at least) everyday. I've...
