Design Wall Monday 9-30-2013

This is a top secret project that I'm almost finished with.  Just a little hand sewing left to do. Complete pictures will be posted later. 

Last Wednesday I used my new studio for a mini-pillowcase day.  Kay's sister is involved with hospice and had asked Kay to make pillowcases for her clients as part of a Christmas event.  Kay provided the fabrics and had done most of the cutting.  Janet and I provided some of the labor. 

Here's Kay pinning one of the cases.  She pinned all of the cases.  I serged all that we finished that day. Janet ironed all of the fabric, turned the pillowcases and then ironed the finished projects.  The 3 of us finished about 14 cases.  Kay was able to pin the other 7 so all she had to do was sew them up. 
A selection of finished cases.

The finished cases ready to go.
On to the goals.  I'm surprised I got as much checked off as I did.  I had two days where almost no sewing was done because I was out and about with Pat. And another day off with friends.  Here are the results.
