|A friend of mine from high school (we "found" each other on facebook via another mutual friend) is a Foster Mom. She is doing a pillowcase project for all the foster kids they get in. She posted on fb for help. Since I recently got into making pillowcases, I said I will make some. :D I tried a new pattern, using only two fabrics. It's so much easier. I used the pattern/tutorial from the Missouri Quilt Company for the three fabric pillowcases, and then found the two fabric pattern after going to the all people quitl one million pillowcase website. I think they are sisters. ? Anyway, that reminds me I need to enter these on that site. Lol. I wanted to do more pillowcases, but... All that cute fabric starts adding up. And I could tell my hubby was wondering what I kept spending money on. :/ I might do some more, but maybe not ten. (Shipping was expensive, too.) :( Eon helped me pick out some of the fabric. The Toy Story and Cars pillowcase fabric, he said "You should use this one. Little kids would like it." ;P ("Little kids", lol...)|
|Can you tell a little better now?... (The one in the crib.) I did Eons' room in a sage green and butter cup yellow.|
|It was in this book, "P.S. I Love You Two".|
|And I found all these pieces that I am almost positive I started when Evan was little, or maybe even before he was born? I know I used fabric from a quilt I made for my cousins' baby (who is a year older than Evan), in some of these pieces. I also know I sent a BUNCH of these to someone I read about in a magazine. (I never got a thank you, or even found out if they got to her, either.. :/ Kind of sorry I even sent them.) Oh well... I have no idea who I could finish these for, except to send to Pine Ridge. I don't remember where I got the pattern for this, probably from one of my quilting books. I will have to look. I think it's called "Flying Geese", though. :) I finally got a window bird feeder, I am so happy. I put it on my window outside my craft room. And I love to see the birds come to it while I sew. :) I can't really see them very well on the feeder in the backyard. Which reminds me, I need more bird seed.. :P |
Okay, it was bugging me... so I went to look through my books, and it is called "Wild Goose Chase" in the book- "Quilts, Quilts, Quilts". Look a sample of it is on the cover of that book. (It isn't on mine.) :) That was one of the first quilting books I got. I think it was THE first one. I sewed a log cabin quilt for Eli (I started it for Evan, though..) from that book. I'll have to dig it out and take a picture of it. He ripped a hole in it and gave it to me to fix. I will fix it... someday.
