    Christmas presents for my cowboy

    My DH works in w. Texas, 7 hrs. away from where we work. He only gets 4 days off a month, so we usually only get to see each other a couple of weekends a month. Since he's working in the town that claims it's where the first rodeo occurred, I wanted to make him something that was cowboy themed. So, here's what I did.

    I love the Texas pillow, being from Texas myself. Where did you get the fabric?

    It's actually a dish cloth that I bought in a fabric store in Ruidoso, NM! I just used it as the front of the pillow. You can probably order them at http://www.marthas-fabrics.com/. Great selection of quilting and clothing fabrics. I haven't been to that nice a fabric shop in 25 yrs.!

    Now he can have you close even when you are apart How clever to use something other than cotton to get a design you wanted

    It gets so lonely when they work away.
