It's is my mum's birthday today on Mother's day,
a double celebration and I wanted to make something nice for mum.
I was pondering what to do with what I had here
and a memory popped into my head of pillows on my parent's bed when I was a child.
I remember them having his and hers pillowcases and I loved them,
it made me feel safe somehow.
I had a couple of really lovely pillowcases and I got some very soft visafix
and I enlarged some words on the computer very big and traced them on.
I used a lovely natural coloured linen fabric for the words,
I didn't want it to be to garish. The pillow slips are actually softer in colour than this.
Then I blanket stitched around all the letters.
I won't lie, it took me five hours, even though it's just a few letters
but I'm stoked how they turned out.
My mum liked them too which is the plan of course!
Actually I was thinking it would look quite sweet with a little cushion
with an ampersand on between the two pillows.

These would make a lovely present for an engagement party
or a wedding present I think.
