Another photo shoot...

As many of you know, my pillows are being featured in this month's (June 2009) edition of Better Homes and Gardens (BH&G); see below for a look at the article.   This Friday, June 12, 2009,  BH&G will be at my home for a photo-shoot of my kitchen.  I'll take photos of the event as it unfolds and share them with you over the weekend.  

BellaRusticaMarket has been open for almost three weeks now and the response from people all over the country has been incredible.  I have tried to send a personal note to each of you but when I read the Comments I cannot "see" your e-mail.  Please use the website to send a note if you want a response and I will do so every time. 

I personally make each pillow by hand.  I begin with cutting the burlap and then I surge the edges for a professional finish.  Once the image transfer is complete, I machine sew the pillow, then press the edges before turning it inside out to press the edges again.  After the pillow form is placed I finish the pillow by hand. Burlap is tricky to work with but the results are elegant yet rustic, a perfect combination.  My little Coronado cottage becomes my workshop as the photo above indicates so I have my work cut out for me on Thursday evening as I clean in preparation for Thursday's photo-shoot.
Grazie tutti....
