I had fun today, lots and lots of fun! Many years ago when our daughter was a little girl, I used to make her applique pillows, I think she still has some of them tucked away somewhere. Today I decided to make some more children's applique pillows for my Etsy shop, the theme of this little pillow came to me last night when I had trouble sleeping. I imagined little mushroom houses dotting the countryside, I may be the craft person in our family but our mother was the story teller, oh how I wish she were still with us, she would have made up such a wonderful story about this little pillow that children would have been spellbound, just like we were. But alas the story will have to wait until this little pillow goes to a new home, maybe one with a story teller with a wonderful imagination just like my mothers. Now on to my award and my tag:
Tess over at Driftwood gave me an award this week, thank you Tess, along with the award came these wonderful questions, now you can find out even more about me...if you dare!
