My Mother spent the day today with her friend sewing pillowcases for a quilting retreat they are going on in April. When they signed up for the retreat they were given the fabric to make up pillowcases which will be donated to a women's shelter. Ummmm...my Mother doesn't quilt, she's just along for the fun weekend.
When I was little, my Mother used to sew Barbie clothes for me (I can't even remember that) and she used to get very upset when I would trade her beautiful sewn Barbie clothes for the store bought clothes my friends had (I don't remember that either). I guess I don't blame her.
Anyways, here are the beautiful pillowcases my Mother made today (thanks Dianne for e-mailing me the pictures!!)
I'm thinking I might need some of these beautiful pillowcases. Apparently they have French seams which took a while to figure out. My Mother is coming for a visit next weekend, I'm thinking I'll get a lesson on pillowcases from her.
Edit: My Mother isn't quite as talented as I thought. She only made one of the pillowecases (the bottom one). Her friend Dianne made the other.
