Did you know that some places actually have designated parking for motorcycles?  Sadly - this was the ONLY photo I took on Saturday at the Renaissance Faire - but we did get special parking and we did have a fun time.

When my mom moved this past summer into her very first "solo place," she wanted beautiful pillows to go with her new white wicker patio furntiture.  Being the fabulous daughter that I am (really - I am!).  I made her some pillows ... after returning the 6 pillows to Walmart and Target that were NOT the correct colors.  So, I make her some pillow covers and we buy the forms and life is GRAND ... except ... she needed more.

So ... being the fabulous daughter that I am (there's no question about this!) ... I make her 4 more pillow covers.  Now I'm just about out of these fabrics so hopefully these will be enough.

And ... just in case you were wondering (am I'm SURE you are), what the heck the Cute Husband and I do when we're not on the motorcycle ... we worked at my guild's Quilt Bingo on Sunday.  He's such a good sport.  He managed to position himself near another Ravens fan and received score updates during Bingo.  Unfortunately ... the Patriots won and now he owes my sister $5.00.

OK ... mad dash to the Post Office so Mom will have her pillow covers by the weekend.  How's that for a Fabric Tuesday?!!
