I guess I am on a pillow kick.  Yesterday it was a pillow for your phone, today it is a case for your pillow.  I am working on Easter gifts and I love to make and give pillowcases.  I picked these cute fabrics up at Joann’s and I love how they turned out.  I bought the end of the bolt of the top piece and I wanted to make 8 pillowcases as I like to give them as sets so I made the top piece smaller than I normally would so that I had enough to do all eight.  I did not buy enough of the purple to do all eight as it was quite expensive.  I decided I would look around at different stores for more fabric that was similar.  This one I am working on a tutorial also.  Happy Tuesday!

Well, I finally finished my housewarming gift for my sister(hopefully she is not reading this) now I just have to get it in the mail to Texas. 

Housewarming Gifts 004

I made the embroidered and then quilted potholder and embroidered on two kitchen towels.  I add a few kitchen scrubbers and a welcome sign.  Hopefully they will bring cheer to her new home!

I’m still here!

No, I have not forgotten about posting to my blog, I just feel like if I don’t have a picture I should not post.  I know, kinda silly.  Our “kids craft day” on Sunday went really well.  It was a day that the kids get some time to put together handmade gifts for their friends.  We had 7 kids (My older sister’s 3, my younger sister’s 3 and my 1).  We made over 20 notebook covers.  They turned out really cute, but there are many more to make.  The idea was for the kids to each make 2 or 3, well it turns out that they have lots of friends and each wanted to make between 9 and 13.  Needless to say we did not finish.  Now I will have to finish my daughters with her or while she is in school.  Another project to add to the list.  And the list is long.  I do have 7 gifts made and wrapped.  Many more to go, so back to work for me…..  Happy crafting or shopping!!!
