Pillow Talk



They always tell me to clean up my room
they've even suggested a dustpan and broom;
"tidy your toys, hang up your dress"
they take all the fun out of making a mess!

Featured: my niece and nephew and some of my handmade pillows
I make a LOT of pillows



Tomorrow and for the whole of next week I'm on holiday in Scotland
I'll miss you all
