I made one of these for a friend of my mother...who has had a real trying life in general...to lift her spirits. I came up with the phrase and hand painted it on the fabric & then did a simple log cabin design to frame it & turned it into a pillow. I sewed a ribbon for hanging into the top edge...because it's more like wall art than a 'couch' decoration! LoL!
That just struck me funny!  Cheesy I do crack myself up!



Anyhow, comments are extremely appreciated, as I kind of fell in love with this idea...and was wondering what you all might think of this kind of thing. Wink

I have made a bunch in various designs...for Hanukkah, Christmas, and everyday....its not limited to holidays really. Undecided

It think it is great; so clever and it made me smile!  I could use one of those right about now - I am right there with your friend's mother.

I'm so glad it made you smile for a moment laughingsister...sorry to hear you've been down that road too.

This friend of my mom's is the most amazing role model...I don't know where she finds her strength...come to think of it, my mom is like that too...and could use one of these! ...only she's not Jewish... ...but...that might make it even better to make her one as well!  Grin She's got my same sense of humor...guess I know where that came from!

Thank you quiltgrl & Laughing Cat (love that name)...for the kind words!
