Eight pillowcases!!


Life got away on me these past couple of weeks, but it tends to do that sometimes. Between family camping and more training at work I haven't had as much time for blogging or sewing or any of the fun stuff. Oops, family camping shouldn't have been included in the not fun stuff should it? ;-) Actually I mostly got to help get ready for camping and then pack up and come home. I did get a couple of lovely canoe rides in with my husband though.
Meanwhile, I needed to get going on pillowcases. I always make one for our girls roommates, and they each have a new roommate this year so I wanted to get that done, and the easy directions on the stashbusters list were so great that I sort of got carried away! I made each of the girls a new one also, and then I made one for the boyfriend, and then a couple for Vanessa who is still at home with me. That's her in the background. She got the cases pinned up and ready for the photo shoot. I think that is her "Ta Da" pose. ;-) These things are so addictive that I have 3 more cut and waiting to sew up. Guess what the extended family and friends are getting for Christmas this year????
