I found a great fabric supply shop!

I found a great fabric supply shop on Etsy! He has some great items and ships quickly! His wife and mother in law also have a shop, so its a family thing, which I think is neat. And, he is from MI, small world!

I purchased the flannel I used to create my "Give a Girly Hoot" Heather's HugEm from his shop. I mentioned his shop in my listing and let him know that I had created something with the fabric he sold me. He created a feature on his blog about my shop! He researched my shop and did a very nice write up!

Check it out here.

Friends make great customers!

I am always so excited to get orders in my Etsy store! I recently had a fabulous order that was placed by a good friend of mine! (Friends make the best customers!)

My friend Tara makes a yearly donation to the Women's Resource Center in Chicago. This year she is going to have me make five of my Heather's HugEms Baby Security Blankets as her donation! I am so excited that Tara had such a great idea, and that I get to work with her on it!

Thank you Tara for being so generous and having such a great idea!

I will post pictures after I get the new blankets sewn!
