Wednesday

Pillowcases everywhere!












oh boy!!!


this just proves how obsessive/compulsive I am !!! Patsy sent me a technique to make pillowcases with no exposed seams...well, I tried making one & totally became hooked on making them...I had yards of OOP novelty fabrics from a previous time that I otherwise would never use now...and I was going to give it all away...until I made that pillowcase! well, now everyone in my family is getting pillowcases as gifts this year...what fun this is...and I had to buy more themed novelty fabrics for my grandson's pillowcases...ha !!! he'll have a set for every month this year....geeeezzzzz....but ya' know...it feels really really good to do useful sewing again....I think this year I'm going to do a lot more of it....

Saturday

Feeling Blue Swap

I used my new toy-"the flower stitcher foot" to make a 5" square quiltie for a trade...the theme was "Feeling Blue" ... I put a blue piece of chiffon over the top & zapped it...but it hardly shows...next time I will use a more contrasting piece...also did a little beading...
and in the same trade was a bookmark challenge...so there are my 2 bookmarks done with my Babylock embellisher...love that machine...punched asst. fibers onto blue cotton & added a bit of beading...statin-stitched the edges...added fibers for the tassel...
