Sunday sewing and sewing...

I've been sewing since early this morning.  Got some stuff ready to ship.  Then I decided that I had to create something.  I had started a pillowcase last week, so I thought I'd finish it today.

I used strips of 2.5" fabric for one side of the cuff.  If you recall, the last time I made something like this it didn't dawn on me that I would only need 3 strips for the outside and that the other side would be INSIDE of the pillowcase.
So this time I got it right.  :)
I also put a strip on the bottom and I wanted it to go towards the body of the pillowcase and it did!  :) 

Here's the inside of the cuff, see, not strips of fabric there now, just a 5" interior.  I'd make it 5.5" next time I think maybe.  :)
I do have to admit that I love the wild and wacky colors.  :)

The body of the pillowcase is Moda Marbles, the strips, I have no idea!!  :)

Had to throw in a picture of my sweet Rudy.  He does so love to chase and retrieve things.  He'll chase any toy I throw and most balls!
Look at that long tail of his!  You rarely see a long tail on a poodle or a cocker spaniel.  So since he's a cockapoo, I think maybe his tail should have been docked, but I'm good with it long too! And when he's wagging that tail, it can HURT and is considered a weapon!!  :)

I'm such a doofus.  I ordered this book THREE MONTHS ago and totally forgot about it.  I love this quilt and want to make one like it.  :)

I don't think it's as difficult as it looks, but time will tell I suppose.

I was looking for my pile of quilt patterns I've printed off, and do you think I can find even one?  Oh no, not even one.  I have no idea where I put them, and since I'm stingy about my ink, I sure hate to print off more of them.  ARGH!

I"ve been listening to some music.  One of my favorite all time songs is Amazing Grace, and nobody does it like Il Divo.  Il Divo is 4 men who sing, and sing very very well.  Anyhow, take a look and a listen...

It's almost time to feed the dogs.  Have a great week, and God Bless,   Anne

Poodles are great and powerful retrievers! He gets that honestly. Dutch was a retrieving fool. Swissys are not hunter.retrievers so he was quite the oddball. Bonnie Doon would watch the ball fly, turn her head to me and say, you threw it, you go get it!

You are really going full bananas on those pillow cases!
