I'm making a little progress on my pillowcases! I've made 5 of them so far. They really don't take that long to make, so I enjoy that.
Here are the first five...
If anyone else is interested in making some to donate to "For Jamie's Sake" you can click on the tab at the top of my blog. Your help would be greatly appreciated. There are also several free tutorials and patterns for the pillowcases. Here is one that I found that is quick and easy. There are also several on You Tube.
A few nights ago, I could not sleep and it was fairly cool so I made my way upstairs to the sweat shop and organized some of my fabric. I don't have near the stash that I use to have but what I do have, I had in plastic drawers and totes and it was always hard to find anything. I decided to put it on my shelf so that it would be in sight and I might be a little more inspired. The top shelf of fabric contains anything from 1/2 yard cuts to 2.5 yards. The second shelf of fabric contains anything from 3-5 yard cuts. Beside the shelf, I have a couple of bolts. I still have my fat quarters, panels, and novelty fabrics in plastic drawers. Oh and also my civil war repros are in a separate tote too. I do have some of my civil war yardage on the second shelf. For now, I like it better this way.
Here are a few of the string blocks that I made out of my light strings. I think I have 56 blocks done so I will probably do a 7x8 setting with 2" solid strip sashing between. I know it's not going to be real pretty but these were piling up like crazy.
Today has been a long but good day! My mom had a company picnic thing at an amusement park about an hour or so away. We went there back in July with the Church too. Anyway, we all had a wonderful time but I'm afraid I will be laid up on the couch for awhile. My hips, back and legs are throbbing like crazy! I can't even stand up straight to walk. UGH! :(
I'll probably have another post tomorrow night to show you a couple of other exciting things. Well....they are exciting to me. :) Tonight I'm just too tired to post about it all.
