So a couple pillowcases got whipped up here this week. Had to literally shove aside a spot to cut and work ( packing continues and you know it gets worse before it gets better) But, got a spider man one built up for Ethan's 5th birthday. His cowboy hat and boots I'm sure will fit inside. I think he'll love his new pillow dream pet or whatever you call it ...lights up and gives him good dreams....in fact he told me that's what he wanted since his broke and he can't have good dreams without it! Jamie put out the call for cute pillow case for Noah's cot at Day Care so hopefully he'll take one this week, and have a spare to wash. Guessing on sizes so these were both experiments to see what fits so I"ll wait for Jamie's go ahead to make a different one here and there for his naptime there.

Louise and I are teaching a "scrappy trip" class in Sept. at ETC. Gonna be lots of fun to go on this "trip"!!!!! It's a techinque class in building these great blocks without ever cutting a square! We've designed them to be done with a jelly roll if you desire or you can use up your scrap strips. Another sample is coming but here is one so you can start your "trip" plans! They are so addictive, so check it out, it's hanging in the large classroom.
My Mom turned 82 this week! We met them at Joe's BBQ for a great dinner and visit. What a milestone every year is!

So Holly Jolly Days was scheduled in July and August hoping it'd make us feel alot cooler! It actually works as we hibernate in the cool air at ETC and work on our projects! We've made a table runner ( my sister was already the recipient of it! :-) ) and then we made place-mats and napkins, we are moving on to the cute snowman and the last class is this tree skirt of santas! It can be a table topper if you'd rather or slit it to make the tree skirt like mine. You also don't have to brave your way thru the furry minkie as the pattern calls for flannel, but oh this came out so cute you may need to do it the same way! It too will not live at my house as I can see my cat Emma never leaving her spot under the chrismas tree. She already loves sitting under it and now with this soft stuff! ugh! But class is right around the corner if you want to make one, 12 happy Santa faces all to cheer you!

OK, for all you girls out there waiting on this photo, since you stayed up this late here it is! Our Project for All Cut Up! Darling, cute, tiny, wonderful little Tuffets for PINCUSHIONS! Yes I know they are tiny and itty bitty but they were so fun to make. In fact I'm wanting to make some on my own and not get paid for doing it!! :-) ( wonderful job that I have to get paid to play!) So yes if you bravely come tomorrow for All Cut UP at ETC. I'll tell you how easy and how fun these were, all out of a charm pack! You use every stinkin little bit too so come see the fun!
And I couldn't stand it but had to try one out of a batik charm pack too...just for fun! We've got the crushed walnut shells all ready for you too. A few little tips and tricks and you'll be amazing all your friends! Both Amy and Haley walked by during my design day while I was doing these and truely thought I WAS SICK to do them but they were really alot of fun! there was a reason for this darling pattern being chosen for All Cut Up. Besides being a great use of a charm pack or scraps, just think of your friends for the upcoming holidays....how cool to get a few made for your sewing buddies! So there you have it, all you "lurking" students of mine that make me smile every class, here is your little fix so you know what you are in for tomorrow. Bring some show and tell for me to OOh and ahh over! I had dinner with Bode and Brock and got to hear all about preschool and watched Brock stand by himself so my crazy day is complete with that. Thanks for staying up late to see! See you all tomorrow! ETC is the spot, 11:00, a 15 minute demo, you get the pattern and you can stay and sew so bring your machines and come for some fun!

Here is just a slight bit of a tease for Wed. this week at All Cut UP. It's not much and maybe I'll weaken by Wed. and post a "real " photo so you can see just what they heck have I been doing....hmmmm lots of pretty colors.....
Been a little busy here, crazy weeks at work, lots going on here and the best part about this weekend is this little guy coming to visit. Course he brought his Momma too and that was fun! Tried to give Jamie a bit of a break altho don't know if we were totally successful at that. We did do a wonderful shopping trip snooping out bargains at Kohls yesterday. Whew we did good. If you wear a 3T and under we found some grand deals! 80% off plus a $10 off coupon, plus %20 off and then 15% off, wow! Better than any used consignment sale! So Noah and I treked the store while Jamie treked the racks!
