 Some dresses with appliques.
 Some just plain
 Others with lace
 and a whole bunch with ribbon
 28 pillowcase dresses in small, medium, and large are DONE!! I will make that self imposed deadline of Friday as the mail date!! Yippee
Now it's on to a "Frozen" cape for Karsyn. While I was at it I went ahead and purchased fabric to make her a dress for later on. Her costume is getting a bit snug :)

I am sew glad that the pillowcase dress job is complete!! I really was worried something would come up this week which would have put me so behind to get these dresses in the mail to the sweet lady who I promised them too. YAAAA for no problems this week!

Tomorrow will be a nice slow day. Pay some bills (ugh), a few errands, clean up the desk and some files, then maybe, just maybe I can work on Karsyn's cape.

I am calling it a day early tonight as I was up at 6:00AM working on the dresses. I can't wait to crawl under those covers with my book.


  1. The dresses are adorable!!! So nice.

    Hope you can find some time to relax, Janie

  2. I have not forgotten about shipping a small box of fabric to you! My husband is having surgery on Tues to remove at least the left half and perhaps all of his perfectly functioning, but greatly enlarged thyroid. He had to get a part time job in order to supplement his pension and my SS and today he had to be out the door by 4:45 and I did not feel rested enough to drive through the fog and drop him off so I can have the car. We share a car and ........ Always love seeing what you have been making!

    1. Prayers for your hubby for a quick recovery!!

  3. Debbie and Diane, just want to tell you that today a wagon load of envelopes arrived and your generous gifts are here. Thank you both for helping me. The dresses are so cute and the children who will get a new dress will be wearing a large smile!

    I've been following Elijah's progress. His smile just wraps around your heart! I'm going to ask my son to look for a hat or shirt he might like from the base here at Indiantown Gap where my son works.They must have children's sizes, all the fellows have children!

    1. You are so welcome!!! Elijah is a very special little boy. We are so blessed to have he and his family in our lives
