Toothfairy pillowcase

So I was away on a trip! I sure had a swell time, it was a mixture of business and pleasure, but it was all pleasure! To read more about it (and see some fun photos) click here!

One of the gifts I gave was this pillow case I made with an initialized pocket for the toothfairy. As you can see it's two sided and I just love the little retro cowboy fabric (it's Michael Miller's yippee cowboy).

Now for the pocket I don't know if you can see it or not but it has a a very 'cowboy' swirl imprint design on it, it almost looks embossed. I'm pretty sure I purchased sheets of it at JoAnn's although I can't find it online for you, however I would have gotten it in the store. I stitched it on with orange thread to match the prints, and finally added an embroidered letter. It was a treat to make and even more so to give.

A real gem

My dear Jessica, beautiful inside and out, she is a gift, of infinite giving. You may remember my previous post regarding her philanthropic endeavors in Brazil. Well today I received the most beautiful gift from her. This ring that features my birthstone! What a thoughtful surprise! Jessica, you touch my heart in so many ways and you bring smiles to so many faces, including mine! I've been smiling all day! I am so glad there are people like you in the world. Thank you so very much. REALLY SUPER BIG HUGS!!
