Upon the impulsive organization of the linens tonight I ran across a pillow case Grandma embroidered. She was excellent with a needle and thread. For years I secretly loved the girlie embroidered, but totally uncool to my friends, coverlet that she had made that I kept on my bed.
I remember her asking me once if I could have anything on my pillow cases, what would I want. As an eight year old little girl, I wanted my beloved orange cat; Sunnie. So Grandma embroidered me a matching set of pillow cases, complete with a hand crocheted lace trim, with an orange cat and purple flowers embroidered on them.
Tonight I ran across one of them in the linen closet.
