for the family of Johnny Sileno

These prayer pillows were made for the family of Johnny Sileno. He died a day-after his 6th birthday after a heroic journey struggling with anaplastic ependymoma. (cancer of the brain). My friend, Jan, is a good friend of Johnny's grandmother, Kathy, and has asked for prayer pillows to be sent to Johnny's family to help ease their grief. If you feel so inclined to make a prayer pillow, or pillows, you can send them to John and Jennine Sileno, 15 Disano Dr., Newburgh, NY 12550. I am sure they will be much appreciated. Prayer pillows are 3" x 3" and embellished with beads, lace, ribbon, and/or small trinkets. A printed fabric with Johnny's favorite themes; fireman, water sports, boating, kindergarten symbols, and/or his favorite color blue! The real treasure is the "prayer" that you write on a piece of paper and insert in the pillow before you close the last seam. The prayer is personal for Johnny and his Family and Friends. It does not take long to make one; they are quite small and would mean a lot.

Krystal's Kat and Zach's Dinosaur

Finally completed the felted cat for Krystal. I am feeling much better now that they are both complete. I still have to add the eyes to the cat.... green beads or buttons, or, maybe just needle felt them on. I am also thinking about making a button charm string for Krystal of all "anchors", as she is using the anchor as her wedding theme. (She's a "Gloucester Girl"!

I am still working on the felted dinosaur for my granddaughter, Krystal's wedding. It is to sit on one side of an anchor alongside her guest book. A kitten is yet to be created. Will post photos when the dinosaur is completed. I have been stabbing away for hours at a time to form the piece, which is 13" tall!
