Now I'm Happy!!!


I'm finally happy with these pillowcases.  The bright solid color works great and the threads on the back don't show through like they did on the white.  I'm sure no one will notice the threads on the white borders but I SAW THEM.  I have another monkey print and one girlie one that will say "Sweet Dreams" with a cupcake. 

Today I preparing for the granddaughter's sewing day on Wednesday.  Yesterday we purchased their fabric.  I'll cut the pieces out so all they have to do is sew straight seams.  I think I'll do all the serging on the seams.  I think the serger might be a little too much for beginners.  Don't want to take a chunk out of their skirt or p.j.s.

It's a lovely spring day here in the desert.  Orange blossoms on the the trees.  Allergies acting up!!!

Love the brighter color, but either way, it's just so darn cute!!

I don't even know what serger means. It's unlikely I could even sew a straight line. Actually, in 1988, an older lady who worked at the law firm I was at in Columbus, MS, had me and my best friend over and tried to teach us how to make a log cabin pillow. My girlfriend did great. I, however, had a lead foot so the lady who had us over finished my pillow for me. :) It's a very windy, dusty, mucky day here. Yuck! Hope you are having a good one. Tammy
