Pillowcase update

I am successfully getting rid of my stash by making pillowcases for the cancer kids  for my neighborhood ASG (American Sewing Guild) in N. Palm Beach.  My goal is to make 1 pillowcase a day (since the meeting last Monday).  Our next meeting will be April 18.  So far I have completed 9 pillowcases. As far as I'm concerned I am not ahead, I'm still going to do 1 a day but if I cut out more and get them sewn up, they are extra.   My time is most important to this project until the deadline.  My stash is going down. Yay! Blessings, Janet

Pillowcases for cancer kids

I don't mean to be too busy for you. I enjoy your visits and comments.  Thank you.  I have taken two quilt show trips and promise I will show pictures.  I have two owl pillows with crochet tops and appliques and cute owl print fabric on the back.  The main issue of the month (due April 18 at the ASG - American Sewing Guild) is the pillowcases we are all doing for the cancer kids.  I decided to make 1 a day.  I made my first one Thursday and cut 3 more out today for the weekend.  I wanted to do this last year (1M challenge) but didn't get it done, since they extended it, I'm doing it.  The ASG will be having a cookbook come out and that should be fun. I have entered a recipe.  Have a great week.  Blessings, Janet

Mr. Bunny and Mr. Carrot

There are two new dolls on the horizon and each one has a bunny and a carrot. The reason for the season will soon be just a flip of the calendar pages.  They are celebrating early.  One has blue eyes and one has green eyes.

Special People

I thought I had put up a couple of things I have been working on and completed.  However, I see I missed the train.

My girlfriend had a birthday Monday.  We spent the most wonderful day together.  I made her a special gift just for her because she is a very special friend.  Blessings, Janet
