i have a friend that was an amazing seamstress. she made the bedding for both of my children's nursery's. she made pillow covers and slip covers and cushion covers and all sorts of things for my aunt and for many people in this valley...
people called her the fabric whisperer.
you could show her a picture of something you wanted her to make and she would just do it.
she was magic.
she was an amazing person, kind, loyal, giving.
in the days before she died she was working on a crocheted blanket that she was going to donate to the local Lions Club for their annual Christmas party auction.
when she started to decline and couldn't sew anymore it was very hard for her. when she asked me FINISH an order i had been prepping for her to sew, i was honored.
she said, "you are the only person i would trust to do it. if someone else has to do it, it has to be you"
it makes me teary thinking about it, remembering her.
these are a few of the pillows i finished up for her.
sara jane parade on the front,
sara jane balloons and just stay little on the back with a small fingernail ruffle.
there is another peaking behind there... white and blue and flowers... so pretty.
she showed me her secret to the perfect invisible zipper. and i love her for that.
it is so easy i wondered why i always agonized over them.
i will and do miss you terribly betty. xoxo
i have misplaced my camera, again. aarrrggghhh
please say a prayer to the camera gods that it will show up,
or my husband might kill me. ;)
