Just dinner

I hope you get my title humor this afternoon, it is Friday after all!

It feels like I have been giving things away all week. Come to think of it, I think I have LOL!


Today's winner will receive a mini bundle of our BUTTERCUP collection. These are the best little bundles of goodies. Half the size of a traditional bundle or "tower" of fabric, these comprise of (40) fat 1/8ths… which is a fat quarter cut in half [9 x 22]… enough to make a lot of good stuff I promise! We really need to come up with a good name for these things, Lissa?

Now for those of you who attempted to guess the fabrics in the pillow and buttons…. wow, you guys are good! Its taking me a bit longer to sort through all of those so give me through the long weekend and I will post the list of winners of the mini charm packs here on tuesday. Thanks for your patience….



I have fallen in love with Aneela's little scooter girls lately and can't wait to get my hands on some of that fabric. Here's why….

…. I'm spending my afternoons chasing after this little munchkin. And can I just add that I'm not nearly as fast as I used to be.

BTW, hope you're still following along PILLOW TALK. Today's link is Deb. One of the sweetest women you will ever meet. And check out all that sweetness she is giving away!

Talk to you soon.

    Dreamy colors! Congratulations Stina! That ought to help brighten up winer in Sweden!
    Joanna, I have an idea for a name for the mini-bundle of fabric. Maybe call them “Short Stacks”. In restaurant lingo that is the small order/plate of pancakes.

    Buttercup Baby, you’re so fine!

    I did! I sent her the pictures too to show her my scooter girl. Cant wait for some of that fabric!

    SUCH pretty fabric! I love the suggestion of “short stacks.” I was thinking also of “Bite Size” packs or “Dessert Bites.” Or Mini Muffins! LOL!

    Short Stacks is a great name. Wish I had thought of it. The photos of your daughter make me hope our spring weather will hurry up and come.

  18. Deserae Fiedler | 19th Feb 11

    🙂 Looks like your daughter loves her scooter!

  19. Erica K | 19th Feb 11

    Maybe the bundles should be called ‘half pints.’ 😀 I love your title humor. It’s very cute. 🙂

    Your little girl is adorable.

    Congrats Stina.
