A special holiday gift

My grandmother's sweatshirt made into a pillow.

Got this pillow in the mail yesterday and it made me very happy. My mom always gives us a gift around Thanksgiving time so that we can enjoy it during the holiday season. Well, this gift is super special because it is a pillow made from my grandmother’s old holiday sweatshirt. My grandmother passed away this past July. She always wore this shirt at Christmas time. It’s just a simple mouse design fused on there outlined with dimensional paint. I gave it a little hug. It’s like hugging my grandmother. I hope that doesn’t sound weird…after all, it wouldn’t be like I was hugging on this kind of pillow.

Anyway, just wanted to share this special gift. I’m still not totally into the holiday spirit just yet, but this is a little boost. 🙂

Until next time Swellions!

    Wow. We lost both Grandparents this year, but have yet to go through the remains of their lives together. I hear tale that there are sweaters and things that will need to be sorted, and I can’t think of a better use than to turn them into something special to have around. Thank you for sharing, and give Grandma a hug from me, too.
