Love is a Pillowcase
Happy love day, friends. If you are alone today, take heart. One never knows what next Valentine's Day will bring. Give yourself some TLC today in the form of a mocha or your favorite music. xo
Lisa Ridgely--how I adore your exquisite calligraphy. Thank you for the "happy valentine's day" file. As you can see, I happily attached it to my collage, above. I can think of a thousand places to use this! Find it in Lisa's shop here.
Now, about the pillowcase. My mom is known for them. She makes the most beautiful, crafty, creative pillowcases. As a child, I always felt safe and loved sleeping on my pillowcase adorned with tiny red hearts. As a grown-up (is that debatable?), I have washed my Mary Engelbreit case so much it hardly has color left.
In honor of mom and the pillowcases she makes us with love, I sewed her one for her birthday.
She liked it.
She even called it "glorious." Glorious: by far my best sewing compliment ever.
Mom, celebrating your birthday with you, dad, J2, Caleb, Nathan, Ian, and Lilly was so special today. You are loved and adored.
