We've been without pillowcases for a week. Somehow, someway, somewhere they got misplaced in the laundry.
Just the pillowcases are missing, as far as I can tell. I'd for sure notice if some of my clothes were gone because I wear the same five things all summer.
But back to the pillowcases. I said I'd make a new set. Perfect excuse to buy fabric.
I love, love, love the DS Quilts line at JoAnn. That's where all this is from.
I thought the pillows might look plain, so I used one of my decorative stitches to fancy it up.
I like it.
The baby quilt is getting quilted.
I stared last night and, like everything else with this quilt, decided I hated it. So I stopped, had a glass of wine and went to bed. This morning I thought it was fine.
The Essex Linen is quilting just like any other fabric. The quilt sandwich doesn't seem heavier.
Here's a lame cellphone photo of the back.
The grey is Quilter's Linen. It's regular cotton with a linen-esque texture print.
I ordered it when I planned to border each block in grey. This is the back of the fabric; the front is much darker.
That's the front.
Here's hoping I finish up the quilting tonight, in honor of Melinda. Maybe I'll have a beer. Also in honor of Melinda.
And, ahem, the adorable dog photos for Aug. 30, 2011:
