WiP Wednesday

Whew, May was a busy month for me!  Travelling, last day of school, a family birthday, Memorial Day weekend, starting to overhaul our home, a stolen cell phone (sad to be missing out on Instagram while I use an old "dumb-phone" until my upgrade...), and even a fender-bender (someone ran into my parked car while I was in the grocery store) has left little time for sewing and blogging.  Man, I'm tired just re-reading that super long rambly sentence.  Too tired to fix it too!  ;)

So I haven't been up to much in front of the sewing machine except the things I HAD to finish.  Here's the progress on those things:

Pillow Talk Swap 10:

PTS 10 Done

PTS 10 Done Front

PTS 10 Done Back

I finished and mailed out this pillow cover, along with some other goodies, to my PTS10 partner.  I hope she loves it.  Fabric is Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee along with Essex Linen.  The pattern is Evan's Star.  The closure is a zipper from the tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew!.

And we all remember that tragic tornado that hit Moore, OK last week.  I have family in the area who watched the tornado pass by their homes (thankfully) only to demolish the homes of their friends and neighbors.  Please see the OKC MQG blog for more details if you would like to help.
