Not too long ago, a friend of Scott's had an emergency appendectomy (that's doctorspeak for "got his appendix taken out" - I just learned that big word from Scott!). The day he got to come home from the hospital, Scott decided that he wanted to make him a nice little "welcome home" gift.
His idea? A pillow. HA!
He asked if I would sew it for him. I answered, "You could sew it." (Seriously, folks. Pillows are so simple!)
And so we worked on a little sewing project together!
Here's the final product, right before delivery:
Scott sewed this fabulous decorative border. Makes it look real homey, doesn't it?
I sewed the four edges together. Scott stuffed it.
And then we added the final, special touch.
No, your eyes did not fool you. That is, indeed, a fabric interpretation of an appendix hanging off the side there. An appendix that has burst, no less!
