Embroidery Silks, Pillow Cases and Cato

19 Dec

I needed more embroidery silks for finishing off the pillow cases so went to my favourite shop, Redruth fabrics which is an Aladdin’s Cave of gorgeousness.

Beautiful silks

This afternoon I finished off the pillow cases which each say ‘Goodnight ******’ (Insert name of Grandchild here). As I was doing the embroidery, I was thinking about my Mum who did the same for our four children nearly 40 years ago. Two, at least, of our children still have their much loved pillow cases!

Pillow cases finished and ready to pack

Our children and their children love the picture story book, ‘My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes’ and visiting next door this afternoon, I was reminded of it when Cato came to sit near me, not on my lap or on the settee but in the box lid.

    The pillow cases you have embroidered are a wonderful idea. Something different. Thank you for the idea and hope you don’t mind if I do this next year. I have my first grandchild Bobby, 4 months old, so a lovely thing to do next year. Hope you’re feeling better.

      I have always thought so and now the Grandbabies are old enough to appreciate them. šŸ™‚
