It’s been a pilowcasey Christmas. Here is a sample from the 10 pillowcases I’ve made over the past few weeks. One for each of my friend Em’s 8 kids and 2 for December birthdays.
And for my pastor’s 3 girls, jewelry display frames. I was a pastor’s kid and missionary kid and remember all the nice things people that I barely knew would send us during the year. It just feels right to give a little something to our pastor’s kids, just like others did for me.
Fabrics are (from left to right): Anna Griffin’s Bailey, Moda’s Full Moon Forest, Amy Butler’s Charm, Michael Miller’s Feelin’ Groovy. Aren’t those little flower pushpins from Target cute???
I am thinking about making one for myself. One of the results of having my 3 babies in 2 1/2 years was that I quit wearing earrings (I mean who had time to do something so frivolous like put in earrings???) and at some point between feedings and diaper changes, my ear lobes healed themselves. It was like going down memory lane looking at the earrings I had – which ones were given to me, which ones I bought in Taipei’s Shilin Night Market (a great picture can be found here – oh I miss that place!), which ones I wore to my friend’s weddings, etc. I think I might like having some of them hanging in the closet or the bathroom where I can see them.
And now the holiday sewing/crafting is done. It’s time to relax! Wishing you a blessed Christmas!
