We are what we are....

I just had a revelation.... As I'm sewing the inner pillows for my new line "Queen's Lane Home" and will be finishing them with cute fabric for a toddler's bed, I realize that these pillows COULD be used for dogs as well! Then I realized that the only reason I'm making them for a toddler is because I have a granddaughter who's 2 - and she's the light of my life.

However, before she came around, I have always had dogs, and now have 2 poodles (a standard beauty named Starr, and a mini named Jacques, who thinks he's a big dog too). I have oodles of fabric, and at one time had the intention of making dog collars and beds (hence the jars of buckles and rings and the extra bedroom that's filled with various depths of foam). The name of this company was Fififoofoo, which I thought was all that and a bag of tricks. It's a lot of friggin' work!!!!!

So, I decided that maybe Fififoofoo will become a subsidiary of Queen's Lane Home. A division of QLH will have dog stuff called "Fifi Foofoo". Whaddaya think?

So, as I'm sewing these pillow innards for my QLH collection, I realize that they could be for dogs as well. And it's all because I've had dogs, and now have a granddaughter. I wonder if I'd had cats and been an old spinster, could these pillows have been for cat beds?

Anyway, I sewed 5 pillow innards and will be doing the outsides tomorrow. Each inside has the QLH logo, embroidered (of course) in white thread on the bottom part of the case, so that there's no doubt where they came from. I wish I had the $ to have labels done. That would have been so cool.

Oh, I received my new business cards for Oregon Digital Design - however when the printer saw the design, he said the foiling part (I wanted the wine in the glass to be foil) was too close in color to the glass and I should reverse it. I hesitated, but trusted him. Now he said he made a mistake and will be reprinting them, no charge, so I'll get what I wanted. Once a designer, always a designer.....

So, after working incredibly hard to clean up the house yesterday (and it DOES look beautious today still), I spent this morning digitizing, this afternoon playing a game on the computer, and just finished the pillows. Hubby will be coming home shortly, so gotta look like I slaved all day and am exhausted....

OK, where are my bonbons!!????
