    I’m keeping this post for inspirations for making pillows. This was such a generous and sweet contest. So glad to thumb thru my Facebook and see your posts. I get a blessing every time. I have a low functioning severely autistic adult son I am a caregiver for. At times he can b so aggressive and melt down me. Me. Zeiman u r so calm I can turn on the computer to one of your sewing shows and he calms right down… Your an angel in our lives.
