We’re packing up the car this morning and heading to my mom’s house for a little birthday visit. Emma hemmed and hawed yesterday afternoon trying to "think of a special project to make for NeeNee". I decided not to give her any direction, to see what she came up with. She finally settled on the idea of a special pillow, which I simplified to a decorated pillowcase. (mostly because it was after 4pm, all children were up from naps, and dinner was far from ready)
You had to know there would be some horsey theme to her gift–a "rider girl" walking her pony over to the mounting block. I love the way it turned out. A quick and easy project that only required a little ironing of a pillowcase and a sharpie marker.
I have a feeling Emma’s gift will out shine the less-than-thrilling, practical one I got for her. Oh well. That’s how it should be.

What a beautiful job she did. I’m sure NeeNee will love it.
i always love that – it’s-4pm-and-i-need-an-elaborate-whatever-for-tomorrow. i’m so impressed – with how you managed to find a way to give her the project she wanted, and with her lovely pillow cover! lucky neenee.
It looks great! Have a fun visit…

Emma is just like my oldest daughter when it comes to crafting the best gifts ever! I love the pillowcase and I’m sure Nene will too.

What a sweet little project! Have a nice trip.
What a lovely little gift! I know Nee-nee (how cute is that?} will love it. Puts me in mind of my own once upon a time little horsey girl.
Love the “air conditioned” jeans too! 😉
