A GAL WITH A KIND HEART

 
While at Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last week, Jill stopped by and showed us this pillow she made.  She said a friend whose husband had recently died, asked her to make a pillow out of one of his shirts. So this is what Jill came up with.
This is a closeup of the pillow.  Jill said she is making a cover for the pillow so you will see that at the  neckline of the shirt.  This is such a clever idea!
Jill and her daughter recently vacationed in Argentina.  Jill brought back this beautiful bag which I had to show you.  She said that in a certain section of the town the people painted their houses all these pretty colors.  I bet that was awesome.  Thanks, Jill, for sharing with us.

A NOTE ABOUT COOLING BEADS:  Several have asked about where we got the cooling beads.  Cathy said that she got her cooling beads, Ashland Water Jewels, at Michael’s.  She said that if people are concerned about chemicals near their head, mouth and whatever, she would recommend these non-toxic beads.
