say it with a cushion

.
I little whiles ago I made a cushion for some friends housewarming party. I tried to sum up the house in a few words, and came up with 'hell yeah'! It was ace. The party I mean, and the cushion too. I drew up a speech bubble and improvised, and stitching the letters on the machine was easier than I expected. I meant to tell you ages ago, but you know I've been a bit sick and I'm just catching up now!
.
So I improved on the prototype and created another one. hello. This one has cursive writing, a better pattern and a handle on the back for easy posing when the occasion arises, so you don't have to hold it awkwardly.
.
They are big enough to be comfy and squishy, made from heavy calico so they're durable and are fully washable. They're in my store now as a custom order (with ideas for personalised text) and I plan to make some off-the-shelf ones too. My (french) housemate would like 'bon jour', and I was thinking 'sweet dreams', 'you're lovely' and 'uh-huh'.
.
What words would you see on a speech-bubble cushion?

(here's the original cushion, now I feel a bit bad because they have the prototype, and perhaps I ought to replace with a better one?)

That is awesome!

I would put "um... no"

on a speech bubble pillow.

Don't feel bad - they have the original, it's where it all started! I love your cushions, they are super duper cool.
