I finally finished up the commission project from my etsy shop for the quad handprint pillow covers.  FOUR OF THEM!!  I even got brave and added a hidden zipper closure to each!!  Found a great tutorial on Sew Mama Sew's blog.  It was alot easier than I thought it would be and they turned out so beautiful. It's zipper closures for all of my pillows from now on!!!

And now they are on their way to Illinois to be enjoyed.

Hope everyone is getting all their handmade gifts ready for the holiday season.  I for one am way behind!  We had alot of drama in our household last week - Total of 3 dr appts, one of which was an allergist for Miss Em.  Then on Thursday Emma sprained her ankle in gym class and my mom went into the hospital because of a blot clot in her leg and lung.  All at the same time on the same day!!  It's been trying but we are starting to see an upside!  Emma's finally getting the hang of walking on crutches and Mom is home resting.  Needless to say, I'm a bit worn out!

So it was good to get these pillow covers finished so that I can move onto the next commission project.

Take care!


  1. My advice: Don't even think about asking what else could go wrong! The power of suggestion is very strong! I hope this week is going better for you. The "hands" turned out really, really cute! ---"Love"

  2. YAY! I'm so glad you finished them they look AMAZING! I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

  3. They look great! So sorry about the ankle sprain. They can be really painful. I understand why you couldn't come to Love's - too bad. Hope your Mom gets well soon.
