Memory Pillow

You may recall that several months ago my friend Linda suggested she make me a "quilt" pillow from pieces of Ben's polo shirts. We cut out the pieces but her sewing machine broke down and she was not able to buy or borrow a new one so I mentioned it to my sister-in-law (Ben's sister) Donna. She said that if I sent her the cloth scraps that she would be honored to make the pillow for me. She lives in Las Vegas, NV so I mailed the pieces of cloth to her about a month ago. This weekend, she and her husband were in town visiting their son and they met me for lunch and then came back to my house and she gave me the completed pillow.



  1. That is a wonderful idea.This pillow comes complete with a host of memories,I am sure.

  2. That is awesome, Kay... I know that pillow will be a treasure to you forever...

    Thanks to Donna for making it for you.

  3. Kay-

    That looks like a real nice pillow!! I'm sure there are lots of memories with the pieces of fabric from your husband's shirts. I am sure that it will be a very good keepsake to remember him by as well!! Thanks for posting the pictures!! Have a great night!

  4. Oh very pretty and will bring memories to you forever.

  5. That pillow is PRICELESS. What a wonderful lasting memory of your husband. You will cherish it, I know. Take care.

  6. What a great idea and Donna has done a wonderful job with the different stripes. I hope it doesn't make you sad but comforts you when you are feeling low.
