Today is my mom's birthday.  This is my mom and me - a lifetime ago.

I wanted to make something special for her and had found a vintage pillowcase in an antique store and decided that was the something special.  Someone had cut off most of the pillowcase and only left the good part along with a little bit above the decorative handwork.  In order to even it out I cut part of the top off and added it to the bottom, hence the seam.  I added the lace and burgandy underlayment and then quilted it.

Happy Birthday Mom.  Mother's hold their child's hand for a moment and their heart for a lifetime.  I love you.
