Pillowcases and poor Mac
Yesterday I did a bit more baking...
And between batches made a couple of pillowcases for the children in Connecticut impacted by the school shooting.
You may have seen the request for pillowcases on some of the blogs. They are being collected by Quilter's Corner in New Milford, CT. There is a U-tube video on how to make a pillowcase using the "tube" method. I had to watch it twice...first I thought, "no problem."
Then I cut out the fabrics and went to sew...had to watch it a second time. Once you do it once though it really is "no problem!" It takes longer to pick out the fabrics than it does to actually cut and sew the pillowcase together...
I have four to put in the mail today...a seaside, a dog-show, dolphins, and space travel....I hope the kids enjoy them. Sewing helps me feel as if I'm doing something to help. Also helps me stay away from the new (yes, as a former journalist I am a news junkie!)
