pillow fight for a cause!

I love pillow fights! I love them even more knowing that no one is going to run off crying because they got hurt.
I just met an amazing young lady, her name is Malynn who has gone through some pretty tough stuff. I got an email from a 14 year old a few weeks ago when I was looking for testers to sew my patterns and give me feed back. I was kind of taken back that a 14 year old might be interested in testing one of my patterns. Malynn did end up testing one of my patterns and did a fabulous job. Here is her picture of The Little My Favorite Bag.



Photobucket


Malynn has a goal to donate 100 pillow cases to Primary Childrens Medical Center in SLC, Utah. To help other children feel better about their stay. I can't even imagine as a parent what it might be like for a children to endure what they endure. Lets help Malynn help them smile :-)




Ladies......Let have a pillow fight!

It is my personal goal to send her over 100 pillow cases! If you are local and are interested in sewing a pillow for this cause please email me at amy@katicupcake.com. I would like to get a sewing night or two together and teach those of you who don't know how to make a pillow case. Those of you who do know and want to join us to help others, that would be great. I will try and get a time put together in the next few days!

Quilt Market Pictures!

Do you ever neglect the things you need to do, even hate to do, for something you would rather do? Well........I have to admit, I should be cleaning the upstairs bathroom right now.............but I don't want to.........so I'm blogging instead!

I'm not sure what happened at market this year! It was crazy busy. I had six times the help this year, but somehow I didn't make it around to all my favorite booths! So for those of you I missed, I'm so sorry! Her is what I did catch at market!

Photobucket

Here is my booth I think this was by far our best looking both ever! It's nice to have talent in the family. Thanks Dad, you did an awesome job!

This is my Dad and his wonderful wife Diane! They hung out with us for an evening. It was fun to have them see what I do.

I'm sure you all know Sandi Henderson, but what you probably didn't know is how much I adore her. After her first market in SLC about four years ago (has it really been that long?) I scheduled here to visit my quilt shop and do a pattern signing! I have just adored her ever since. She has helped me along my way and has inspired me to want to become better and better at what I do. You are awesome Sandi!

I just love how she puts things together!
