Colours and emotions really do go together don't they?
|Sunny day shot in November|
We had a little play, I sewed up the beginnings of a quilt as you go pillow for her ... that cheered her up and she was back to school the next day. And so the half made pillow stayed half made ... until now.
|Rainy Day shot in June!|
We are calling it her "Rainy Day Pillow". I love the tenderness displayed in the Sarah Jane print at the centre of the pillow.
Making this for my daughter has taught me that even kids need PJ days sometimes. Life can get a little overwhelming and no amount of rainbow can bring on a smile. It's OK to mellow in blues sometimes. They soothe the mind, cool any anger and freshen you up for the day ahead.

My youngest daughter was feeling her normal happy self that day ... her choice of fabric was a lot more "festive" ... check out this for colour ... did that wake you up?
Time to sign off and start sewing her little masterpiece together too!
