I started off this new year hanging out with, and cooking for, my family - an awesome first page of my 2016 book!
4 were made for the girls with an Olaf theme (from Frozen),
and 7 for the boys and of course they had a Star Wars theme.
Here's the stack of finished pillowcases ready to wrap and put under the tree. That represents a lot of hours of effort right there!
It's been 16 years since I made these for all the kids, and since that batch I had learned how to make a french seam. That means there are no exposed or fraying seams. If you haven't tried that method yet, you can see a tutorial at Karen's Fabric Obsession.
Here's another one of my recent creations - a pickle tray.
I had fun finding unusual flavours and a variety of pickled vegetables. My niece made the labels for the tray. It was interesting to see which of the kids were game to try anything, and which wouldn't eat a single one!
Once the company leaves today, I will be heading to the quilting room to work on my mystery quilt. Did you see the exciting Allietare reveal? It's a gorgeous quilt and I can't wait to see how my version is going to come together!
