Love and Pillows

I recently came across something, that made me smile. You see, My Guy and I travel a lot. A LOT! When we first started dating, it was a long distance relationship. One that crossed timezones. And fond us on opposite ends of the country. He would fly me out for the weekend. He'd make it a point, to hangout with me early in the week. But it was tough.

Skype became our best friend. E-mail, IMs, and phone calls were a must! He'd hide little notes, so I could find them, when we weren't together. I'd steal a shirt of his. We were actually quite funny! So when I saw this pillow, it just made me think of this time. And my Love!

These days, we live and travel together. But recently, we've been apart. More and more. As I try and help my Mom take care of my Dad. And My Guy has to work. We still make it a point, to only be away from one another, for just a day or two. But those are some lonely times.

I'm positive that these pillows would be a nice addition for us. A comfort of sorts. With our home states on them. Just a little something to remind us, of each other. When we are apart. Funny how, My Guy, was searching the internet, for these pillow cases. And we can't find them anywhere!

I guess, that means, I need to get busy. And I'm not that great at embroidery. So this could get interesting. Have you seen these anywhere? I really want to buy a few. I even searched Etsy. With absolutely no luck! And I'm pretty positive, that they have to come from a handmade shop. Please help!

My Favorite!

I know that it's still early. But I've been thinking about "Wintery" types of things. Like clothing. And it got me thinking about my favorite crochet scarf pattern. Bernat's Softee Chunky Woman's Hat & Scarf Set. For the last 4 years, I've been making this scarf...

I don't know what it is. I just adore this scarf! Is it crazy that I've made 3, in the last day? I'm trying to get started on my Christmas gifts. And honestly, this is so relaxing to make. Although, to be honest, I've never made the hat. I should try one. ♥
