me on TV -oh dear heavens


first off holy hannah! 5000 comments later on the giveaway. and i come to find out that 5000 comments is the limit that blogger lets you have.
i.never.knew.that.
so i've opened up a second post for all you people who keep emailing me to open up the comments again.

okay now for moving on:
well so i have a little bit more news to spill.
a few weeks ago i got an email from the producer of a morning show here in utah called Good Things Utah asking if i'd want to possibly come on the show and demonstrate one of my tutorials.
i looked up at my husband with terrified eyes, and he asked "what?"
i answered " i think i'm going to be sick."

so one phone call later and i had agreed to do a show on Feb 4th.
yes that's one week from friday people.

i joked with the producer that i would probably toss my cookies on live air, and she laughed. i think she thinks i was kidding.

so here's where you guys come in.

they asked me to do one of two projects...

A.) the heart gathered pillow:


or
B.) the ruffle pillow.

and my question to anyone out there willing to give me feedback is...

which project would you like for me to throw up on while on live TV.
a girl's got a right to know.


i don't drink but i may just take up hard liquor for the next two weeks to build up some tolerance so i can drink myself into a drunken stupor relaxed mode for the show.

*edited:
*yes it airs that morning right as i'm doing it.
*yes for all of you out of state who want to watch the train wreck i'll post it here when it comes on the site.


i'll be over here rocking back and forth in the corner.

You'll do fine! They're SO nice and they totally ask questions and keep you on time and stuff. I'm glad I did it...once. ;)

(Just kidding...I'm emailing them about going back again, LOL!)

Lexie & Jeff said...

I love 'em both, but it's perfect timing to do the heart pillow tutorial since it's right before v-day.

DJ Rose said...

You'll do great. Does it air on that day?

I'm not sure which one to do. I love them both. My gut says do the gathered heart pillow. Good luck. I'll watch for you.

Aimee said...

Jake and I are laughing (not at you) but at your wording. You'll do great. Congratulations!! P.S. in case you needed a guys opinion, Jake votes for the ruffle pillow. It is my vote too.

Aimee said...

Chris said...

What a wonderful experience (!?!)...I'd be sick to my stomach too, but I think you'll do a fantastic job. I vote for the ruffle heart. I hope you post a link so those of us not in Utah can watch too. :)

Kalleen at Second Street said...

You'll be great. Both projects amazing. Good Luck. I'll be watching.

Jenn said...

The ruffled heart. It's so cute.

Colette said...

That is so exciting! I vote for the ruffled pillow. It's one of my favorites!

Ellen said...

I say the ruffle pillow. But do which ever one that you feel the most comfortable with so you don't lose your cookies on tv. :)

Fran said...

Ruffled pillow! Love it!

Frannycakes

Rebecca said...

I like the gathered heart pillow! I see the same type of pillow with a pumpkin, leaf, tree, shamrock etc in my near future!

Sarah said...

This is a fantastic idea. I am a fan of the Moda bake shop but rarely click over to check out everyones blog (time is always a factor) but today I am enjoying some yummy choc chip cookies thanks to you and have just found an awesome blog to boot. Thanks for the inspiration.

Ruffle pillow! It is my next attempt to be domestic and I would love to see it done so I don't totally mess it up! But your tutorials are amazing and I'm excited to see the show no matter what you choose to do.

Missy said...

Now I really wish I had TV. maybe I'll just invite myself next door while the show is on.

I like the heart pillow :)

morgan and whitney. said...

the ruffle pillow!!

Julie said...

I vote for the ruffle pillow.

Baskets Of Quilts said...

Definitely the heart pillow for valetines day

Rachel said...

heart pillow:)

Griffith Family said...

I say the ruffle pillow...sooooo adorable!!!

Ally said...

my vote goes to the heart pillow! Although I love them both! I wish I could watch the show!

The Hojnackes said...

I would love to see you do the ruffle pillow!

Katie said...

I'd go with the gathered heart!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I know you'll be fabulous, no liquor required and no throwing up!
Do the heart pillow - tis the season!
Best.

Larissa said...

oooh you are a celebrity!!!!

Either one is fabulous...the heart pillow is just in time for love day.

I would watch, but oh wait, I am out here...grrr.

rissa80@gmail.com

Matt and Kim Fairbanks said...

I LOVE the ruffle pillow. They're both cute so you can't really go wrong, but I vote ruffles.

V and Co. said...

i'll post a link up to the show when it happens on that day. maybe...depends on how bad it turns out. or maybe the worse it is the better to make fun of?

Kari said...

A - the heart pillow

Cannon Clan said...

ruffles all the way! cant wait to watch you, you will be charming like always :)

Jane@Little House of Projects said...

Congratulations! You deserve some attention! I'd say do the pillow that you think is the easiest for the largest number of viewers possible.

Jill Ann said...

Whichever one you feel most comfortable demonstrating. I've been on GTU a few times and they are amazing to work with. They're so relaxed, so it relaxes you. Promise!

I'm tempted to be in the studio audience that day… :D

Anne D said...

You will be great. I will probably miss it as it will not be shown here in Australia. I think you should do the one you are most comfortable with and maybe the one that will hide the vomit best!

Lizzy said...

Heart pillow!

Erin @ two more seconds said...

that's awesome! I'll totally be watching live ... and I vote for the heart pillow!

Stephanie said...

I love the heart pillow! I'll be watching!

amy smart said...

Woo! I can't wait to watch. V, you'll be awesome. Your personality is so fun and you look so cute too. I love it. Seriously - you'll be great!!

I vote heart pillow too! :)

I was on TV once talking about organizing holiday gift giving. There was a table of props in front of me. My pregnant belly knocked one thing over, which hit another and about half the table's contents proceeded to fall like dominoes. I didn't throw up though and neither will you. Mostly it will just go by really quickly.

As another commenter said, the best idea is to pick the project you feel more connected to. That's the one you'll be able to describe under pressure.

Tausha said...

its not as scary once you start doing it. But before, you should get some xanax! :) totally kidding! I have the opportunity to be on Studio 5, so if you need pointers or help, I would be happy to share my opnions and what little I know! You will do awesome! Wear a great lipstick-it will help you feel like a million bucks!!

rhilborn said...

I would say heart pillow. It's timely and the technique is stinking cool! Good luck, what a fun opportunity.

Joyce said...

Definitely the ruffle pillow!

emedoodle said...

The heart pillow!
Good luck! You'll do great!

Jacqueline said...

They are both cute but in the spirit of Valentines day you could not the heart. They can show the ruffle and have the link to your blog up and they could mention if people want to learn how to make the others to check out your blog. OR make the one that is less complicated for YOU to explain. Less to worry about the better.

MrsJoseph said...

I vote for the gathered heart, but both are gorgeous!

Shontelle said...

Definitely the ruffled pillow - it's gorgeous. And I'd give the liquor a miss - go straight for the valium...relaxation without the slurring. Only kidding. xx

Tonya said...

I like the ruffle pillow and you'll do great. I can't wait for you to post it for us out of staters.

Lyn said...

Ruffle pillow for sure

Teri said...

Oh, make that cute heart pillow since it is so close to Valentines day! Congrats on the honor!!!

Kwilt Noob said...

You'll be great! I'm sure they feel like they are lucky to have gotten you. I adore both pillows, but I really think the heart pillow is darling, and the perfect Valentine's project. Can't wait to see the video! Have fun!!

piece peace said...

With Valentine's Day coming up I would conduct the heart pillow tutorial. I have not been on TV but I have spoken before many large audiences before and practicing repeatedly in front of a mirror helps me feel prepared and less nervous. I am sure you will be brilliant. Congratulations!

Marie said...

Awesome! I cant wait to see it. I am sad I cant watch it live. But we love VA.. I love both, so not sure which one you should do.

Ruth B said...

Woohoo! You'll be awesome and if you throw up, do it before the show! I would like to see the ruffle pillow being made. This may be the start of a whole new venue for you. Maybe your own sewing show?

Sarah said...

Ah, go you! Can't wait to see it! Heart for valentine's day or the ruffle pillow for people to make more lasting projects. Either one will be great! The ruffle pillow may be easier to complete on TV.

Jennifer O. said...

Seeing that it is close to Valentine's day I would take the heart pillow. Plus it looks the easiest to do too! Best of luck and try not to loose your cookies!

Jillian said...

I love love love both of them, but I'll go for the heart pillow. Good Luck!

Dean said...

Definitely the heart pillow. Good luck!!

Nichole said...

Ruffle pillow - more versatile than strictly Valentine's day.

Breezi@ Not Your Average Fairytale said...

Awesome!!! I'm so excited for you.

(although, I'd probably puke too if that were me on stage ;D)

My vote is for the ruffle pillow. So cute!

jednoiglec said...

Definitely a ruffle pillow! They are soooo gorgeous - perfect for girls - this little ones and this a bit elder:)))

bll1707 said...

I really like the ruffle pillow. You could change up the colors for valentine's day if wanted.

Sandy said...

Very cool - you're now the second person I know who has been/will be on that show - I really should start collecting autographs :)

I bet you could make an amazingly cute barf bucket to bring with you - it could look like a purse and no one would know...

Paula said...

I love the heart gathered pillow! Good luck, I'm sure it will be a success!

mom2three said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!
My vote goes for the ruffle pillow - it's one of my favorite pillows ever!

Ammie said...

Um, I'd love to see you make the heart gathered pillow. It's the bomb!

Kelly said...

i'd say with valentine's just around the corner, the heart pillow would be perfect! they're both great pillows!

Dani said...

Ruffled pillow! Please do the ruffled pillow, there's going to be sooo many Valentine projects showing up it would be nice to have something more versatile! :) Good luck, you'll do great!

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Ruffled pillow gets my vote!

Funky Kim said...

Note to self: Set DVR.

A.J. Dub. said...

I want them both! :) Can't wait to see the show.

I am increasingly surprised at how many of you quilty bigwigs are in Utah. I guess I need to move back. Maybe some of the talent will rub off on me!
I know my fam would appreciate it. :)

Hilary said...

Congratulations! I'd love to see you do the ruffle pillow. You'll be great.

Amanda said...

I think you should show the heart pillow. People would more likely figure out the ruffle pillow on their own - the heart looks more complicated. Plus Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it might catch people's eye. Good luck - wish I lived in UT so I could watch the show!

Red Headed Step Child said...

Ruffle pillow! Ruffle pillow! I vote Ruffle pillow!

Anonymous said...

WooHoo! I would do the heart pillow since its right before Valentines...that's what Martha would do...he he..=)

mrs.owens said...

I didn't mean to post anonymously...sometimes I don't know what I am doing on here.

MaryJanes and Galoshes said...

There are so many comments already I didn't read them to see what the popular choice is so far..... but from a marketing point of view I would go with the ruffle pillow. I love the heart one, but I think the ruffle one would draw more people to your site. Just my gut feeling anyway. Good luck! Can't wait to see the video.

Taylor

Lori said...

LOVE both, but I really like ruffles and have been wanting to make some ruffle pillows.

Barb said...

I think the heart ruffled pillow would be very timely! However, considering the 'gonna be sick' thing...maybe eating color coordinated foods lol. Have fun!

Danae said...

Congrats on the opportunity! I have to say I would certainly be just as nervous, but I'm sure you will do great! Since both projects are super its a hard call, but being that its close to V-day the heart may be more timley - but go with the one you are more comfortable introducing. Again congrats!

Emilee said...

Congrats! You will do great! I think you should do the heart pillow! It is on my to do list!

Anita said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the ruffle pillow!!!

Jessica said...

I like the heart pillow, but it might be nice to do which ever you are more comfortable with.

Diana said...

Go for the ruffle pillow and best wishes for the show!

Becky said...

I'm totally setting my TiVo now. I've already started the heart pillow, so I'd like to see you do the ruffle pillow, but either would be great. Break a leg.

Sarah said...

I vote for the ruffled pillow. Btw- my first reaction would have been exactly the same - you gave me a good laugh! Good luck!~

sarahpalya[at]yahoo[dot]com

girlsmama said...

I am so excited for you!!! How exciting!!! I vote for the ruffle pillow. It's my favorite, although the heart one might be easier. I'll be watching!

Sew Sane Jane said...

How exciting! I say ruffle pillow (although both are fantastic)

Kelli said...

ruffle pillow

marilee said...

ohhh..either one. you can't choose wrong, since they are both great! i'd personally like to make both! good luck. you'll do great!

Natalie said...

the Heart Pillow for sure! Valentine's day is around the corner you know...

Cassey said...

I say the ruffle pillow...but purely because I would like to see how to do it...other than that I would have to agree that it is the season for the Vday pillow. Just remember to breathe. Good luck!

Emily said...

Congrats on your upcoming feature! I'm sure you'll be awesome, as you are with everything. I like both projects but I'm a little more drawn to the heart pillow, since it's almost February.

Laree said...

Heart pillow all the way!

Layne Bushell said...

I love em both...but I'd love to see you do the ruffle pillow!

~april said...

the <3 pillow since in honor of v-day!

Anonymous said...

Ruffle pillow!

ellen said...

I vote for the heart gathered pillow. And next stop Hollywood!!

LeAnn said...

How stinking exciting for you! I love to catch the show when I'm in Utah. They always have such fun ideas and topics.

Heart pillow or ruffle pillow?

Heart pillow is perfect for the holiday!

Have fun and good luck!!!

emily snyder said...

the heart pillow. totally the heart.

Swanson Family said...

How fun! Can't wait to watch - you'll be amazing. I vote for the ruffled pillow. Congrats!

craftydrmom said...

Both pillows are fabulous (of course), and while I am pretty sure I now need 53 ruffle pillows on my bed, the thought of making one of those bad boys on live TV makes me break out in hives. So my vote is the heart pillow... which I also need a flock of.

Have fun!

beth said...

i would say the heart pillow. I'll be watching you! Good luck

Beverly said...

I choose the pillow because you can always flip it to the other side. Just kidding, I know you'll do a great job! Can't wait to see the video.

bjahlstrom said...

Do the heart one!!!

Mama Spark said...

I love that ruffled one! Either way the people watching are the winners. So, a whole new career for ya then, righty-o!!

ContentEwe said...

I love that you are going for it eventhough the idea terrifies you!!

P.S. I vote for the heart pillow. :)

Genevieve said...

you'll do great! and i vote for the ruffle pillow :)

Krista Hansen said...

You'll be great!!! I already made the heart pillow, so I'd vote to watch you do the ruffle pillow. Setting the DVR now :)

Michael and Kelsey said...

i could definetly could use a video tutorial on the ruffle pillow. the heart pillow looks do-able for a beginner, and i plan to make one this afternoon.
you'll do great! im excited for you!

Purple Quilter Queen said...

Holy Moly! I can't wait to see the segment! I choose the ruffle pillow. Best of luck! Jenn

srander2000@yahoo.com said...

Good luck and I vote for the ruffle pillow

Anna said...

I totally love the heart pillow. That's the one I think you should show!

L Johnson said...

Congratulations, I think! I think it would make me scared stiff and i wouldn't be able to sew;) I vote for B although I like A too but my vote is for B!

Ben and Rebecca Moss said...

Oh what a hard decision! I love the heart pillow but I am currently trying to make some ruffle pillows for my girls room. I would love to see you on the air! Yes! Do the ruffles! that woudl be great!

ellzabelle said...

I say the heart pillow. I think this is more unique and perfect for Vday. Maybe when you do such an AMAZING job you can go back on and do the ruffle pillow, but this time I say heart pillow. Can't wait to see it. CONGRATS! Ellen

Lindsay said...

I love them both! but I think the heart pillow would go nicely for valentines day. Goodluck!

Ang-e said...

Heart pillow all the way. For the reasons previously stated.

Yay! It's about time you got some press for your awesomeness!

You're going to do fine-it'll be over before you know it and you'll come across lovely.

Annie said...

Ruffle Pillow!!!!!!!!!!!

Admiring your ruffle pillow!!

vivi said...

you will be perfectly fine, v!!
I would choose the project that is easier to explain.. but what ever you choose will be fine, I'm sorry I wont be able to watch it, is there a weblink to watch the show? let me know..

Ruffled! And do it in red/white prints. Good luck on your tv debut!

I'm lovin' the ruffled pillow. It could be pink and red for Valentives Day!
CONGRATULATIONS! You will rock it!

Nancy @ Live love laugh said...

Congrats on your tv debut!! L<3VE the heart pillow!! New Yorker who can wait till you post it!!
~Nancy

Beth said...

That's so exciting! You'll do great. The heart pillow would be so perfect!

Jane Doe said...

I love both. It is perfect timing for the heart pillow. But the ruffled pillow could, might, possibly go into repeats...not just a special occasion show. So the ruffled pillow is timeless, the heart pillow might rerun and only show itself at this time of year, around Valentines!

I don't how you are going to decide. did they tell you how long you had to demo?
Can hardly wait to see which you decided on
AND to see the show when you put it on here..

Jane in London, Ontario, Canada

Stacee Maree said...

I would go for the heart pillow. Love it. Good Luck. I would die, or pee my pants, then die of embarassment.

Tammy B said...

ruffle, ruffle, ruffle! more to hide the tell tale signs of an upset tummy ;)

Dayna said...

Definitely the ruffle pillow.

Victoria said...

How awesome! Not the sick part but the being on TV part. ;)

Personally I would love to see the ruffled pillow tutorial; however maybe you should go with whichever you could do in your sleep (or drunken stupor). :)

Best of luck!

maggie said...

Do which ever one you feel the most confident in doing. It will help you to relax.

Binky said...

I vote for ruffles.

cmcscraps said...

I vote for the heart pillow. Just before Valentines day and would make a great gift to give to someone special. Deep breaths and you will do fine!

Lynda said...

I think you should do the heart pillow. It's super cute!

You'll do great! :)

Wendy said...

You'll probably make yourself sicker thinking about the show than you will be sick during the taping ... I think you'll be Aces and can't wait to see the segment! While I'd love to see the ruffles pillow, like others are commenting, the heart pillow really does seem more appropriate for this time of year. Go kick some serious crafty-butt!!

Cecilia said...

I vote for the heart pillow. I'm sure you will do fine.

Thimbleanna said...

That's awesome V! I definitely think throw up would look much more attractive on the ruffles!

Jacqueline said...

You will be AMAZING. AHHH-MAAAZZZZ-ING! Do whichever one takes less thought - make it perfect and they will invite you back! And living in CA I CANNOT WAIT until you post it for my personal viewing!! xoxo

Anonymous said...

Do the heart pillow as it will be just before Valentine's Day. Do not drink or take something to relax you it will be a disaster. Also do not drink anything carbonated before the show unless you want to stifle a burp on air, don't wear blue eye shadow. Be yourself, think of the audience as your immediate family or friends and try to have fun.

Sierra said...

Wow!! I think I'd be sick, too...
I don't know how I'd choose between the two since they're both adorable, but I, personally, would love to see the ruffle pillow...sans throw up, preferably ;)

@signaturecreationsbysierra.blogspot.com

bethanndodd said...

That is so freaking exciting!! Congrats to you...whoo hoo!! I have NO doubt that you will do just perfect (and if you don't, noone will know but you!) I vote for the gathered pillow but maybe use some Valentine's day fabric to combine the Holiday with an everyday pillow (just a thought)

Stitch Memories said...

both are great but I would go for the heart!!! Perfect time to do....
Good luck - you will be wonderful!

Are You Serious! said...

I love them both! My favorite forever has been the ruffle pillow! I still want to make some! But I love the heart one too! My daughters will love those!!!

AKnativewoman said...

Bless your heart, you have nothin' to worry about - but you are so very funny in your dialog!! As to a project, I really love the ruffled pillow! Go out and share your talent with the world!

Ali said...

CONGRATS!!! I love that show (not that I ever get a chance to watch it, but I'll try on the 4th!). Heart pillow. So fun. Eeeeeek!

Christine said...

Congratulations, you'll do great!!! My advice "Fake it, 'til you make it", always helps me. I think the heart pillow would be appropriate for Feb., but I love the ruffle pillow too. Good Luck!!!

Christine said...

do the heart pillow so they will have a great reason to invite you back!! Assuming of course, that you don't toss your cookies on anyone! Break a leg!

Kim Walus said...

Do the Heart Pillow. It's perfect and you will do just fine. You have the advantage of being cute and darling yourself so, just enjoy and have fun with it.

ladybug said...

I love that you are asking us which project you want us to see you ack on! You crack me up! (and I do believe that you'll be great as well!) Congrats!!!

Noni said...

The ruffle pillow is my vote. And I'm totally setting a reminder to watch that show that day. I don't have to watch it regularly. I'm not sure I even know what TV is anymore.... I'm excited!

Rob & Cami said...

I love the gathered heart pillow! It's a perfect Valentine's craft. And, you will do great! I love reading your blog and it will be fun to see you in person!

Little Birdie Secrets said...

First off, LOVE that show, even though I don't live in Utah, because all the fabulous bloggers are strutting their stuff there! Lucky girl!

Secondly, do the heart pillow! It's so much more original!!

Good luck--can't wait to watch you!

mac said...

Congratulations. I would like to see how to make the heart cushion.

Heather Macbeth said...

Do the ruffle pillow!!!! I'm in love with it!!!

Good luck!

Happyme said...

I love the ruffled pillow...a girl loves frilly things!

Kathy B. said...

Good luck to you! I can imagine the nervousness you are feeling, but you will do fine! I think the gathered heart pillow is the better choice to demonstrate. It's seems like a more "do-able" project, but at the same time it has several steps, so you can keep busy with talking about each part while the cameras focus on the pillow.

mackenzie said...

Love, Love, Love the Ruffle Pillow!!

Elisabeth said...

Vanessa- Congratulations! Since it's so close to Valentine's Day I'd do the heart pillow. It's really cute. I wish they had shows like that around here. Where I live, everyone is too intellectual for crafts. I fit in much better in Utah!

Nancy said...

I think you should do the one that you feel most comfortable with. I absolutely love the ruffled pillow but the heart is just perfect for V-day. Either one - I know you'll do great. I'll keep you in my thoughts!!

Tweedlebug said...

I like the heart pillow myself. You'll do a great job, and I'm sure everyone on set will do their best to help you get through just fine.

Kathleen Sigg said...

I was late getting to the progressive dinner so thanks for opening the comments again! Love your designs!

amandajean said...

why did you say yes? i'd be freaking out, too! but I'm sure you will do fine! congrats on being asked. that's so super duper cool!

i'd vote for the ruffle pillow.

Cheryl said...

I'm excited to watch you! You will do great! I vote for the ruffles!

Teala said...

Ruffles!! You wil be awesome...can't wait to watch!

Laura said...

I am BEYOND thrilled for you. You will do wonderful. Just fight the instinct to fall into the fetal position and giggle uncontrollably and you'll do great! Can't wait to see it when you have a chance to post it.

Anonymous said...

I would do the heart gathered pillow because it is soooo close to Valentines Day. Plus, being on air and all, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the easier project would stress you out less, but that's just me..like I said, correct me if I'm wrong!

Teresa said...

I vote to do the heart gathered pillow. It's super cute, and unique. (I've seen lots of ruffled pillows lately)

Anonymous said...

I am thinking the heart pillow!!! You will be GREAT -

happy zombie said...

I am sooooo not surprised you were asked and I'm so freaking excited for you!!!!! I'll be watching when they post it online (hoping they do). You'll be awesome, my friend! Freaking awesome! Just remember to lurf your cookies at home before you leave.

Oh, definitely the ruffle pillow. Very girly!

mel said...

Congratulations! How exciting for you - I'd definitely vote for the ruffle pillow!!

Vanya said...

Both are lovely but I especially like the ruffled pillow. Best Wishes!

ashley said...

heart pillow!

catie said...

you'll do great! and my vote is for the ruffled pillow. PLEASE do post it for the rest of us, good morning utah doesn't come all the way to kansas for me. :)

Jodi said...

They are both fantastic but I would go with the Gathered heart one as it is 10 days before Valentines day which gives the viewers time to make one of their own.
Good luck I am sure you will be fine.

Liz said...

My vote is the gathered heart pillow! :) Congratulations on being famous!!

Amy said...

The heart pillow, it is so cute!
And I think why you are in Salt Lake, you shouldn't miss out on Art Market, you would love it, it is that day from 10 - 7.
www.artmarketutah.com

Melissa said...

Okay, so here's what I'm thinking... they are going to ask you back, so on the 4th, you should do the heart pillow, since it will be good timing, right before Valentine's day and all. Then, when they call you in three weeks and say, "We must have you back! You were so great!" you can do the ruffle pillow then!

pam1228 said...

It's a tough choice because they are both great...but...since it's almost Valentine's Day, it seems to be most appropriate. Good Luck!!! Wish I lived in Utah so I could see the demo.

Stephanie said...

I love the ruffle pillow! Its very anthropologie looking!

Suzy said...

Love both, but the ruffle pillow is my pick!

Gayle said...

How fun for you to be doing this! I did a segment for Studio 5 last January and it was a really fun experience - I think you'll do fine!

Wren said...

I love the heart pillow, but it's sort of cliche, right before Valentine's day. But, that's sort of what those shows are--holiday appropriate things.

I vote for the ruffles..wait, the heart.. um wait....ok, the heart. Yes, definitely the heart. It's just too cute!!

Katie said...

Wow! So awesome that you've been invited to share your tutorials on TV! Way to go you. :)

Oh, and my vote goes for the ruffle pillow (the second one). Obviously both options will be winners, but the ruffle pillows are my personal fave.

Best of luck! I'm sure you'll be great. :)

madrekarin said...

The heart pillow would be a great choice! Perfect timing and you wouldn't have to deal with copious amounts of gathering threads! Good luck! Or should I say, "Break a leg?"

Ann said...

The pillow with the ruffles. Good Luck

Skip and Faun said...

I have my loud hand clapper and very loud, very cool whistle ready to go! Yes, V, I can whistle like no body's business! ...you will feel very loved... or embarrassed. Hopefully loved.

Nena said...

I can't wait to watch you on TV. I've got it set to record. I vote for the Heart because it looks more complicated. I love both pillows but I think the Ruffled one would be easier to figure out by myself--you could even show it and just quickly tell how you did it. I have no idea how you did the heart so I'd like to see a demo. Good luck--you'll be awesome.

I can't wait to watch you on TV. I've got it set to record. I vote for the Heart because it looks more complicated. I love both pillows but I think the Ruffled one would be easier to figure out by myself--you could even show it and just quickly tell how you did it. I have no idea how you did the heart so I'd like to see a demo. Good luck--you'll be awesome.

I say the ruffle pillow--it looks harder for me to figure out without watching you do it on tv. My friend takes a pill thelp her relax before performing--maybe you could get in on some of that. :)

I'm a little late here. I wish I could see this show. I would like to see you teach the ruffled pillow if I were able to watch. Congratulations. Mary Jo

Ruffled pillow for sure.

I vote ruffled pillow. The gathered heart looks way to simple (I haven't looked at the tutorial though). The ruffled pillow looks complicated but doable(is that a word?)

Love the ruffled pillow. My 13 year old daughter said ruffled pillow too.

Thanks, Vanessa, for getting back to me on where to find the sand castle fabric. I didn't get any in time to make my Gathered Heart Pillows, but I'll look for it next time I'm at a quilt store.

Thank you also for the awesome tutorial!! I'll definitely use this one again!

Well, I think the heart pillow would be of more interest given the time of year, but if you're gonna puke on something, go ruffled. It'll hide the chunks better and keep it from splattering your hosts.

Yup, as it's just before valentines day, do the heart one... congrats btw, you'll be great.

Do whichever you are most comfortable doing - that will take away half the fear. And, the hosts are amazing!! They totally walk you through what you need to say and keep you on track. Don't sweat it. Once you get started its like you are working with a friend and everything else disappears.

You'll do great!!!
