Reasons Why I Sew: Reason # 3

Reason # 3:  I love my Mom.

Mama R has been searching high and low for a mattress cover for one of the beds. The mattress is not the most comfortable firm. And she's been looking for a mattress pad that would make it feel less firm.

She has purchased and returned many mattress pads and covers over the past few weeks. Some were ill-fitting. One was actually shorter than the package's listed measurements. And most had a plastic like topping. I don't know why it took me so long to come up with the solution. But better late than never.

"Why don't we make one?," I asked.

"That would be nice," Mama R replied.  "I would be very happy."

And that is another reason why I sew.
