Going home

On May 13th I leave for Colorado...Home.....  I can't wait to get there and I will probably be anxious to get back to Oregon once I am there....sometimes it's a no win situation.  In preparing to go, I decided to make some of my family something.  My Mentor (Pat) has been making pillowcases using the sausage method.  She talked me into trying it and now I am hooked big time.  I have made 8 so far and I have 4 more cut out and pinned to sew.  They are so much fun and I love trying to find fabric combinations from my stash.  Most of the ones I have finished, I have used my stash, but I did buy fabric for a couple of them.  Trying to match the fabric to the person I am giving them to.  Below is one of the photos of what I have done so far.

I am totally addicted to this method of making pillowcases!

Happy Saturday Everyone,

Wow, they really turned out nice. I have never made a pillowcase using that method.
I do need a new pillowcase. I only hope mine turn out as well as yours did.
