It is always such a joy to receive wedding invitations to friends or family weddings. Marriage is such a blessed event. I used to dread the task of looking for that special gift but no longer. More often than not I now hand make embroidered, satin pillowcases for the bride and groom. There is nothing better than laying your head down on a satin pillowcase. I purchase the fabric, assemble the pillowcases and then add the finishing touch by monogramming them with my embroidery sewing machine. Love it!
