Blocks and pillowcases
I have finished a few things to send this week.
Lyn is making a quilt for Illene, who is going through hard times, and she needs us. Would you like to help her? Please read here to get the information. Every single nine-patch block is welcome!
These are the ones I’m sending :
Stephanie wrote this post about sending pillowcases for the Hole in the Wall Gang. If you get interested, there is a video where you can watch how to sew the pillowcase. I read the instructions she gave, but…
The truth is, I racked my little brain trying to understand how to sew it together… But I am one of those people who need some pictures!!! A “visual brain” I would say. But after seeing it, all went well. I had fun making them and I think you will, too!
I made one for a little princess (with castles and fairies) and one for a boy (a little sailor, perhaps!) :
I’ve also been cutting a lot of strips for the No Strings Attached Challenge, the more, the better, the merrier!
I’ve got the blues…
But also the greens,
the reds and oranges,
What am I going to do with them?…..
I am not so sure, but I thought I should start cutting the strips. I have to begin somewhere.
Last week there was a parcel waiting for me when I came home.
It was from Stephanie, she is such a dear friend, always caring for others. She sent me a snuggly, lovely flannel pillowcase to keep my back warm - thank you so much! I love the cups, to me they are filled with hot chocolate and some marshmallows!
It is a blessing to feel the kindness from my blog friends.
If you are having sunshine, enjoy it!
If you are freezing, keep warm!
Wishing you all a lovely and creative week!
Until next time
