Finally Some Creativity Time

     I have been working this week on a full-size quilt for my daughter, pics to come later. It's been a much needed release for me. Going for too long without working on something creative makes me feel like I am "starving", and I know that those of you with a creative bent understand this. Along with the quilt I'm making, I also managed to squeeze in a few small projects including the above pillowcases for my son. I only have a short break from school, so I am trying to squeeze in every last bit of creative time possible, it's good for my sanity ;) During the last semester I managed to get my creative fix by keeping watch on my cousin Dolly's blog and living vicariously through her. Thanks Dolly!!

     My son picked out the fabric, and who doesn't love Spongebob?! So I serged up the pillowcases for him in about 10 minutes. Simple, yet satisfying. And of course he loves them. I usually just sew pillowcases on my regular machine, but the orange fabric I used for the edging wanted to fray, so I used my serger. I like how they turned out and I think I'll do this all the time now.

     I have a few more small projects done that I'll post later this week, along with my progress on the quilt. Wishing you all the Happiest of New Years!


  1. You're so very welcome, couson o'mine !
    I was just talking about you today, to my sister, Mary Sue, in California. I was telling her how much I enjoy blog-swapping with you, knowing that we are kindred-crafting cousins !

    I am wishing you the MOST prosperous and HEALTHY and wonderul NEW YEAR !

  2. It is nice to see a post. I know the feeling. It is satisfying to finish a small project, especially when you haven't had a lot of time to work on creative projects. Hope 2011 is a good year for your family.
