She should sleep better now, right? :o)

My mom will be 80 in September. Wow, sounds like forever, doesn't it? About a month ago, she was here visiting and we went to a quilt shop - her, me and my sister Isabel. She saw this fabric and said "Oh, I would sleep better under those guys." Ewww! This is my mother talking, not a girlfriend. LOL Well, I thought if it'll make her happy..... So I bought a piece of the fabric, about 3/4 of a yard, I think, and made this pillow case for her. She LOVES getting mail so I guess I'll pop in an envelope and send it to her. On baby project off my sewing table.

I got two more blocks made from the yellow and white swap I did. I want to make 4 more to have a lap size quilt. I pulled some more yellows out of my stash to use. I'll pobably just put two borders on it and that's it. Tonight I'm going to my buddy, Sherrie's house. I'll either put something on the longarm or have her show me how to thread the serger she gave me. Fun, fun, fun. A girls gotta have fun! :o)
