Flapping in the breeze :)

Current temperature outside = -6C (21F) ... my Babushkas were in mortal danger while I was outside in slip-on shoes (no socks) and a hoody, trying to get pictures of these pillowcases :D  But the sun was shining and it looked so lovely and crisp outside - I couldn't resist :D

In the last few days I finished off some fabric yardage that had been sitting in stash for quite a while.  I cut out 5 pillowcases, then gave the rest of the fabric to a friend, hoping she could use it (because by that point, I was really tired of that colour and those prints!).  I finished off the last of the cases last night - these will get donated.  5 meters of stash busted - not bad at all :)


5 little pillowcases hanging on the line ... none flew away and all are fine :)


I added lace trim to a couple of them :)

5 pretty pillowcases flapping in the breeze ...



... my toes were frozen so I ran before a sneeze :) 
Pardon the terrible TERRIBLE rhyme - I couldn't think of anything witty off the top of my head!

While I was out there taking pictures I somehow managed, because my fingers were frozen, to change the camera setting to the film setting, and accidentally got a few seconds of video, LOL.  Hopefully I can get this to work ... perhaps I'll be nominated for a video award ... or maybe NOT :D

  6. Award-winning stash busting. I just seem to add to mine. No- actually, I was a very good girl about ten years ago. I went thru the stash and seriously weeded out three full boxes for donation (my various sewing groups). Feeling quite smug, I was dismayed when the fabric fairies tried to squeeze in four new boxes of fabric within six months. I learned my lesson.
