Buona Notte

.
I'm working on a good night, well literally working and working on having one.  You know, I've said before that my best products come from the ideas and suggestions of clients.  I spotted the "bonne nuit" stamped - not embroidered - pillow cover in the Pottery Barn catalog a couple of months ago, and embroidered out my own version of the pillow cover for my shop.  Shortly after, I received a request from a new customer with an Italian flair for a pillow messaging "Buona Notte."  Nice!  So, I created a listing for her without a photo, as the pillow cover was not sewn yet, but a description with photos of other completed pillow projects.  Just hours later, another gal e-mailed me and asked if I would "make a Buona Notte pillow for her like the one described in the current listing."  A custom order just from the description!  Awesome. 

I have been practicing on the big machine in the last week.  Nothing real to show yet.  Trying to get the threading down and keep my fingers intact!  

Bonne Nuit, Buona Notte, Good Night, Sweet Dreams ... back to work.

Yay for you! An order just from an existing description, that really is pretty darn cool. Hope you're still having fun doing it all, you must be gearing up for the holidays.
