A friend and colleague has been terribly sick with cancer treatments, so I made these to help cheer her up. She said cool colors are what makes her happy. I made the pillowcase because she's been spending so much time in bed. The little table mat can go wherever. It could be nice for a large placemat, too. It is the first time sewing with batiks and with doing my own improv piecing. I hope they do cheer her up!
