My Daughter.

My Christmas present.  From my Daughter.
I love pretty embroidered pillowcases on my bed!

My Daughter has three children and a job and a husband and is very busy. 
 And I didn't know she even embroidered!
And she made these for me.

I know the gift of time because I sew.  And it touched my heart like no other gift could have.
I was completely surprised!  I am still overwhelmed.

Today , they will go on my bed!

I should have known she had such a gift.  She stitched this sampler when she was just a little girl.

Oh, how wonderful! I can understand you're being overwhelmed. The gift of her time to make something she knew you would love....that's the real gift, isn't it? Lovely.

You will sleep soundly and dream sweet things on those pillowcases! Such a precious gift of her time and talent.

Overwhelmed wouldn't even begin to convey my feelings if I had received such a gift!

What a delightful surprise! She knew the perfect gift for her mom. That in and of itself is wonderful. I know you will treasure those every time you see them. Merry Christmas.

These are so lovely. Nothing nicer than crip white pillowcases with a little embroidery. I love them.

Oh I would not know what to do if I received a gift like this from one of my daughters! Wow. I have got to get back to my little daygown. I was trying to practice my embroidery and then Christmas came. I am anxious to finish it though. I am your worst student ever!!!
