Two Quick Projects Done

I may be absent the next couple weeks. We are getting ready to make an important announcement at work in a couple weeks and I'm working lots of extra hours. I'm still trying to stay caught up on reading blogs and may make a comment or two, but hang in there, but mid-June I should be back to normal.

I did get some playtime this past weekend. I finished my red and white needle case for my redwork group. It didn't finish very square. I've had this problem with many of the needle cases/wallets I've made this size recently. I hope the person who receives it, likes it. The inside has two pockets and two red wool "pages" for holding needles.

At the retreat I was on recently one of the members gave a pillowcase demo. It was a great demo and I was inspired to make a pillowcase for DH. I had some leftover New England Patriots fabric and the piece was just large enough to make him a pillowcase. He loves it. So do I. Too bad I used up all the Boston Red Sox fabric I had or I would have made a Red Sox pillowcase too.


I should get some playtime in this long weekend. On Saturday I'm taking two quilts to the long arm quilter. Then we have a birthday party for our 5-year-old nephew and then we are having company for dinner. On Sunday DH is going golfing. I'm staying home Sunday and Monday so I can play. That is, unless by boss decides to wait until Monday to pack to go to London on Monday night. Oh well, that's life.

We'll be here when you get back. Take it easy. Work is just filler between quilting sessions.

Don't work too hard - quilting will keep you sane.

It will be interesting to hear about the announcement - come back soon.

Don't work too hard. You know what they say about all work and no play! :)

Aren't pillowcases fun? I found some fabric with paper money all over it and made my 19 year old son a pillowcase out of that and he loved it.

Take time to get in a few stitches here and there! Your needle case will be appreciated by some lucky one!

See you when you get back, Paula. At least you can see the end to the extra hours!

Good job in the needlecase! Don't you just love redwork?

The needlebook is great - I am sure the new owner will love it. I love to make pillowcases. They are such great quick gifts.

Do you know I recently almost deleted you, well to be truthful, I actually did! I sorted out all my favourites alphabetically and I have another with coffeee in the title who has changed blogs 3 times....I thought yours was one of her old ones and deleted it!!! That's what i get for paying attention to names and not blog names, I just thought of you as sweet P!!
Anyway, I found you again, but my apologies for being neglectful! Cheers, tracey
