Stitching time

God has given us gifts we just need to find what it is...

Mission Dresses

This is called a pillowcase dress. The old fashion idea of this type of dress was take an old pillowcase and make it into a dress for a child. I am sewing the width of the fabric and then hem it and make the dress as if a pillowcase. I am making some dresses for the mission work that "Healing Hands" works with. I have lots of lace and reck rack and had fun putting trim on them. I have 17 made so far but my goal is 20 and I have a lot more fabric in my stash waiting to be made into dresses for the darling girls who wait! :-)

Pillows for Fun

This has just been a fun project for Patricia's Lake House. I think they will enjoy these soft pillow for many days of lazy life at the Lake!


This project was a challenge for me. I had a set of directions but they were not very clear so I just did my own thing mostly. I chose the colors as I went. I wanted to make it with bright and happy colors and I am pleased.


The new year came in and now it is Febuary where has the time gone? I have not gotten to do much quilting or needlepoint this year but my heart wants to. I have finished a quilt top but not quilted yet. I have made some pillows but not done the hand work on them. I helped a friend make a Roman Shade and bed spread with a few pillows and that is finished!!!!


I made this Yo Yo quilt the last couple of months last year. When I saw this idea on the cover of one of our quilt magazine's. I had a box of Yo Yo's made so this made it an easy/fun job. I appliqued each yo yo on to a 3 1/2" strip of fabric (this fabric was in my stash) I had a fun time making this quilt.
