I didn't do as much Christmas gift sewing this year as usual. But, I did make the gifts for my grand kids. I try to come up with something different each year. This year I made reading pillows. It's basically a pillow that has a pocket to hold books and a strap on the top to carry it by. I made mine the size of a bed pillow
and added a zipper so it can be removed for laundering. I add a couple
books to each pillow according to each child's interest.
I haven't posted anything for a few months and haven't done much sewing either. My sweet Mom passed away in October and I miss her so much. Then I got sick - probably due to stress. So I just haven't had any energy for my sewing world. I'm starting to feel better and hoping the start of a new year will be a new start for me too.
Since Paisley always makes me smile and feel better, I thought I'd post some pictures of her. She's a little over a year old now and it surprises me how much joy she brings to my life. When I lost my other dog a couple years ago, I wasn't sure when I'd be ready for another one. But the opportunity was there and (ready or not) Paisley came into my life.
