Goodies in the Mail & Operation Pillowcase


A few weeks ago Freda at "Sew Whats New" offered a prize to the 1st person to send her a link for pinup girls fabric. I sent her to J & O Fabrics & won!! And here my prizes a wonderful vintage handkerchief & a charm! I have a box of vintage linens from my mother that I someday plan to use in the right project & this fits right in. Thank you Freda!!
And what have I been up to the last couple of weeks? I finished the quilting & machine sewing the binding on Gilbert's quilt, now my daughter is finishing up the hand sewing. I'll get the label on & get it it's the mail next Tuesday. I embroidered a label on the Rainbow fish quilt for my month old great nephew & it's in the mail + I sent 5 bright pillowcases for the other nieces & nephews in Wa state.
Also I'm working on a few more pillowcases for the Operation Pillowcase Project. These pillowcases are fast & easy to make & use up a lot of outdated stash fabrics + it's a great way to say Thank You to our young men & women over in Afghanistan. If your interested in helping out head on over the the Operation Pillowcase blog & sign up!!! I will add pictures after I get them finished... Happy Quilting
