Waiting Is The Hardest Thing!



I am in "waiting" mode.  I  have a shipment of beautiful vintage European grain sacks on their way!  You can see some of them in the photo, which was taken by Wendy Lewis before she packaged them for shipment.  I have many American grain sacks on their way too, from all over the United States.  I hope to have a wide variety to choose from!

My dining room looks like a shipping warehouse right now....it is like Christmas when they come in...trying to guess which grain sack is in each package.  It is always so exciting to open the package and hold a piece of history.   I need to get them all in so I can decide what kind of pillows to make from each one...so many decisions...zippered, envelope back, sashed and tied, buttoned....ooo I can't wait...hmm then the decision to ruffle, flange, fringe, pipe, etc...I love it!

I have two professional workrooms signed up and read to go.  I guess I will put together an order of pillow inserts tomorrow... I will be using a mix of 10% down with 75% feather...but I think I will also have the down alternative available just in case someone has allergies!

Stay tuned...you never know what might happen here!  

Blessings to you this week....I hope your Valentine's Day is AUTHENTICALLY LOVELY!
