A dear friend married recently. It killed me that I couldn't travel the distance to be with her to help celebrate.
I made this ring pillow for her...because she sent me the link and asked me to. While not useful in the kind of wedding she had, it became symbolic for me to make it for her...so I did.
I scoured the town yet wasn't able to find yarn that was "quite right" for this little project...so in the end I unraveled a sweater of mine and harvested the yarn to use and was quite happy with the result.
I love that when Sonya was here last month, I took her on a tour of my life, and on the half mile drive between my school and my home she pointed out a tree that had recently had a branch sawed off and seeing the heart, said it made her think of Jen.
Now when I drive home from school everyday and see that tree, I think of Jen and Sonya.
