I just have to tell you this story. If you already heard it, just skip this post. 2 weeks ago, another Friday nite checking emails and stuff, I got a text from Emily. Emily is my sister's daughter, she is 16. A little history. I have all boys, so she is my girl. We are in lower SC and they are in VA, near DC. So we visit about once a year. Last year for Christmas I made pillowcases for the nieces and nephews. Emily love Converse low top sneakers. They call them Chucks up there. I found some fabric with all colors of Chucks on it, so of course that was Emily's pillowcase. I got a big big hug. Anyway back to 2 weeks ago and the text.
Emily: Hi Aunt Vicki, this is Emily, your niece. Will you do me a favor?
Me: sure, what
Emily: make me another pillowcase
Me: sure, what kind
Emily: Buzz Lightyear ( you heard right)
Me: ok, but you will have to wait until I get to the city to find some. maybe a few weeks.
Emily: can I get it and send it to you.
Me: sure about 1 yard.
So, several days later I get a big envelope with Buzz Light year in it. I make the pillowcase and 2 more a little more fashionable for a 16yr old girl. I called my sister to tell her Buzz had flown the coop and was on the way back to Va. Emily sent a letter with the fabric. She had gone from a single bed to a queen and none, I mean none of the other pillowcases in the house would do. LOL. She offer to pay me. I told her never.
You know my sister could have made this for her. I just love Emily, and I know she loves me.
Later Emily: thanks lots love you so much.
hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.
