Fabric Report - Week 33

This is the last time you will have to look at these dragon pillowcases! I used all of the fabric, even the last 1/2 yard.  I made the last two for me and my DH with the small left over piece. They are the two on the front left with only the cuffs made out of dragons--black bottom for him, yellow for me.  I wanted to keep something as a reminder of what the fabric looked like (Right, like I would forget anytime soon lol) AND to remind myself NOT TO BUY any fabric at a sale that you cannot inspect first!!  I think I've made enough pillowcases this year. Delivered 53 in June to St. Louis Children's Hospital and there are 32 more here on the table. They will go to Our Ladies Inn, a safe shelter for abused women and their children. Thanks to several of my friends for making a few too so I wouldn't go crazy as quickly.

These pillowcases were helping my stash numbers each week.  Now I'm in trouble --I really will have to get going on the UFOs again if I want to hit my goal of using 200 yards for the year.

  5. OH MY GOSH, Dar! You're so productive, and generous! There's no way I could ever make that many pillow cases, let alone use up the same fabric.... over and over. God will surely give you an extra gold star. Bless you!
