I had a brainstorm on Wednesday after we had gone out to lunch (renea, les, lisa, ree (reneas mom). It took a while like at 4:30 in the afternoon but......i wanted to take a picture we had taken at lunch and make each of them a pillow for valentines and going away. well, you know Renea is the queen and Lesley is the Funky Art Queen! So i spent some time in the fabric store and worked fast and furiously but I did finish them. I made them pillows with our pictures on them. Reneas was made specifically for her and Lesleys was made specifically for her. You can see the jewels on their crowns. The round things above Renea's are typewriter keys that spell QUEEN because we all know that she is!!!! Lesley's has Funky Art Queen embossed on her body! actually her jacket. these were so much fun to make. i had a blast! and i hope they loved them. i think they did.
the back of renea's pillow. i tucked in a vintage valentine i ordered on Etsy.
This is the back of lesley's. i love the little birds on both fabrics. this one makes me think of the counting crows song "birds on a wire". i'm gonna have to make some more of these. i had to copy renea's pockets because i had to do them so fast i couldn't come up with something else on my own! i will miss my friend's physical presence but we will still talk every day. post pictures, phone each other, blog so we can keep up with faces, e-mail, and then there is always going to visit,,,,,have i left anything out? love you girl. you will be great in Cleburne. lots of people to meet and you have no problem with that! remember if you don't want to work and still want to meet people you can VOLUNTEER! i just thought of that! love you and already miss ya.
