Pushing Forward

Yes, I have taken myself to task and have set up a program to accomplish all that I need and want to by Christmas. Yesterday I designated pillowcase day.  In between all the household things that needed to be done I made 5 for all the little people I love in my life.

I love making pillowcases because it starts with choosing some really fun fabrics!  And, what is not to love about shopping for fabrics that are totally out of your normal list of fabric wants, lol.

I love coordinating the trim and cuff and I use a French seam so there are no raw edges or raveling after laundering.

here is a photo of the pillowcase body.  Aren't they fun!  I love thinking about the kid I am going to make one for and choosing the perfect fabric :)

Not sure what is on the list today.  The weather continues to remain below freezing and thus the snow remains.  Which means it is another day of quilting and this evening Valori Wells Kennedy will be speaking at the Guild meeting and I am hoping she will be sharing her trip to Morocco!

Have a great day and let me know if this is a handmade Christmas or if you will be hitting the malls to complete your list?  Mine is a mix of both.
