Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up

So, I forgot our wedding anniversary (oops).  My husband was out of town for work and sent me flowers.  He was going to be home around midnight, so I headed up to my sewing room and put together something I knew he'd be crazy over. I left it on the kitchen island so he'd see it as soon as he walked in the door (My husband ADORES sock monkeys).

It is a pillowcase for an airline pillow (he swiped it on his last trip).  I had some sock monkey fabric that I bought a long time ago and wasn't sure what to do with.  The sock monkey face is cut from felt, fused, and then sewn on.  He can take the pillowcase with him when he travels (he goes cross-country a lot) and stick it on the airline pillows and think of me (and our daughter)  Grin.

This is so cute and sweet too.

It's good to be able to whip something up when you forget an important date, no?

I did that once for a Valentines day I forgot - customized a mat and framed a snap shot of the two of us. That picture is still on his desk at work - he was so touched.

I never did tell him that I forgot it until that morning  Smiley

Yep that is one of the perks of being a craftster. I never worry about not being prepare for a birthday , I just make somethink quick and viol. And another perk is having an excuse to swipe stuff (they were gonna trow it out anyways! )

That is so adorable - I can just picture your husband on the plane all comfy and cute with that pillow case. And how easy is that to pack? it's the perfect travel/"remember me and our anniversary" gift.  I'll have to click "this rocks" on this!
