I was called into work last night at 6 pm and worked until 3 am.  I tried to sleep in this morning, but my two dogs wanted to play about 8 am, so I got up.  I ran a few errands and then came home. 

Yesterday or Saturday, I watched Nancy Zieman of Nancy's Notion Fame.  She was making Dresden blocks and using one of those mini wand irons.  It looked like it would work great when making mini quilts and, I decided that I had to have one.  Joann's had it for 50% off.  YEAH!  

I also worked on Jen's quilt.  I am about half finished!!

My cousin's wife Julie has leukemia and is in the hospital in Salt Lake City.  She is going to be there for about six weeks and will have to have a bone marrow transplant.  I saw the cutest pillowcase at the fabric store the other day and decided to make it for her.  BUT, I also thought that it might not make her husband too happy, so I made her two!

Here is the first one, is this HOT or what?!!  They have a fifth wheel and go camping lots!

Julie is also very sassy, so the second one should cover that!!  Ha!!

Love you Julie!

I have a feeling that I am going to be making more pillowcases in the near future.  I can think of lots of friends who have the need.


  1. Those pillow cases made me smile - I'm sure Julie will be cheered up by them too! A very thoughtful gift!

  2. Sandy, Another excellent job! I'm sure Julie will love them. xoxoxo, the sister

  3. Those pillowcases are AWESOME!!! They both made me smile.

    Happy New Year!

  4. My goodness Sandy how have I missed all your projects? You've been incredibly productive - wowzer!

  5. Julie will love your FUN pillow cases!
    You have started the year with a very productive Bang. You go girl.

  6. I stumbled across your blog while looking for a baby tumbler quilt pattern. I am amazed at your productivity! You certainly are an inspiration! I laughed out loud as I scrolled down and saw the pillowcases. They are sure to being some joy into Julie's life.
