Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend – it’s been a quiet weekend with my family for me. We have a new puppy, Gus has been with us for about three weeks and a ton of fun! He’s a good puppy, and is fitting in well with the family, but keeps us on our toes for sure. Shoes are put away, and the kitchen floor is clean!

I hope you had fun learning more about Think Big – and just maybe were inspired to add a new pillow to your space!

My Sophia had a birthday party for a friend last week, and when I suggested we make a pillow for her friend, she jumped at the chance to sew with me.


In fact, she did all the piecing and quilting on this quilt-as-you-go pillow cover! I finished it into a pillow for her while she was at school, and she LOVED giving it to her friend! Now she wants to sew another for herself, and I’m so glad to instill that love of sewing in her! And a pillow is just the right size to start and finish in an evening.

 Think Big is available here, and I extended the promo code for today use – ILovePillows – for 30% off your signed copy. I extended the promo code because the book had been marked sold out for a couple days – sorry if you had any frustration with that.

Happy Quilting –
