Kissing Pillows

January, 2013--While attending an ANG CyberPointers meeting at Seminar in Philadelphia last year, I picked up some "kissing pillows" to stitch.  These are done using very simple stitches. then returned to a group who sew a backing to the front, and stuff them.  I understand these little pillows are given to men and women in the miliary who are deployed to areas of combat.  The family members about to be left behind "kiss" the pillow for the militia to have with them.  Also, military personnel will kiss a pillow for each child to keep with him or her as a reminder that their parent will return.  I'm told the demand is great for these little keepsakes.
