My BF's daughter and grand-daughter are coming up from Florida for a joint birthday party and I'm invited so I just had to make something for them. The Amber bookmark is for her daughter and the Ela pillow cover is for her grand-daughter. No, I did not make the fabric around the pillow - it came that way. I x-stitch but do not really sew that much anymore. My BF says both of them will really appreciate something made special for them.
