Super Size Pound Cake Recipe...

Hi everyone! I've been wanting to share this recipe for pound cake with you for a long time. My mom made it for as long as I can remember for big family functions. This pound cake is one of my husband's favorites...second only to the ultimate chocolate cake!!  I love making it for larger parties or dinners, because of it's size. It's a Super Pound Cake, not just because it tastes great, but because it's extra large!! It's definitely a fan favorite.

How To Make Your Own Small Pillow Form...

Hi everyone! We've been busy moving our oldest daughter Courtney and her fiancé Courtland into their first home. We still have one more move of furniture this coming weekend (that dreaded heavy Ikea furniture that we're afraid to dis-assemble), but we're almost done!! It's been a lot of heavy lifting, painting, cleaning, organizing, but their home is beautiful. We're so proud of both of them for all they've accomplished at such an early age.

When everything is moved in, the final stage of decorating the new extra rooms they have will be the most fun! We all know after moving into a new apartment or a new home, money for all the final touches of decorating might not be there.

Pops of color, in the simplest form of pillows, is the best idea. Just one yard of fabric and a pillow form will do the trick. One yard of fabric can yield 2 throw pillows at 18 inches by 18 inches. You can also use pre-made fabric napkins or a tablecloth to make pillows too. It's just straight line sewing from there.

Today's post, however, is about the pillow forms. They can be so expensive in fabric or craft stores. Here's a tip to make your own from cheaper bed pillows you can buy at discount stores or ones you may already have.

How To Make Prairie Points For Your Next Quilt Top...

Hi everyone! I've been in my sewing room, fabric flying, making quilt tops to hopefully sell online soon!! Quilt tops that are already made are great for those of you who love to "quilt" and not piece. One of the little quilt tops or wall hangings I made has prairie points on it.  I thought I would share a tutorial on how to make them for those of you who love to piece like me!!

Here is one of the scrappy quilt tops I made with 1930's reproduction fabric...

The prairie points really add dimension to the quilt!
