Duplicate pillowcases...


When Sarah and I made the pillowcases seen here, she had got enough of the fabrics to make another pillowcase for her home.  So, I decided to start on them yesterday.  There are actually 7 of them...not sure if where the other two were when I took this yesterday.

Yesterday was spent trimming the fabric to make the ends straight.  and the rolls done...and I actually got that line of stitching done.

After our morning trip to Hardee's I came home and did a bit of the usual chores, plus made a pot of chili, then I went down to the basement and actually vacuumed some down there.  Then I started and worked on these pillowcases again.  I got them all pulled right side out...I make them basically the way Tea makes them in this video....

If I can get to work on them tomorrow, I should finish them...then will feel free to start on something else.

That being said, I am so wanting to have time to take a drive....I would love to go to Goose Pond or to the Heron Viewing Park north of Danville, Illinois.  And I would love to go to Willow Slough, but never know what effect a longer trip like that will have on Roger.  He tires so easily.

Whoever chose these fabrics has a lot of talent at matching patterns! I do hope Roger starts feeling better.

I love the colors of the cases, you are so talented.. I would be hesitate on a long trip also.. once you get where you are going you have to go back and if he gets to tired there is nothing to do about it.

You are so talented. I just love the fabrics. I wish you could make some of these day trips you long for. I know you would enjoy taking photos to share here. Hope you rest well tonight.

I love the colors. The small ball pattern is my favorite.
