Yesterday was dyeing day. I got 5 gradients dyed, including 2 new ones and I had time to dye some socks and tshirts for gifts too. In the evening the serger and I got together and got our Christmas on.
I wanted to make Christmas pillowcases for Ella and her brother, Eli. They also have 2 cousins so I made 4 of each. I felt that I needed to make 2 designs so that they could alternate pillowcases with the laundry cycle and no one would have a meltdown if they didn't have a Christmas pillowcase for a day.
Mom is spending Thanksgiving with their family so I'll send these with her to deliver. Today Mom and I are running errands all day so the only thing I think I'll get done today is to get my stuff together for quilt club this weekend.

Great fabrics! Perfect for pillowcases. I've decided that I will make each of the grandies a new pillowcase every Christmas as a 'Grandma Tradition'. Guess I should have made them in Christmas themed fabric!

I don't usually do holiday themed items because then I have to store them for 11 months - and forget them the next year. But I do like those Christmas fabrics. The kiddos will really enjoy them.
