More prep work.......

Today is sewing circle at church and we hope to finish up the final pillowcases for the 100 we are donating the domestic abuse shelter.  Most of this last 15 are made from donated fabric and I chose contrasting trim or cuffs from my stash.  I donated over 40 yards when we started on them too.  I do the cutting at my house where I have the large cutting mats because it is hard to cut large yardage at the church.  I also baste the trim strip to the cuff on all of them before I take them.  I really wanted to play with my batiks yesterday, but after spending 5 hours on this project, I was done for the day.

Done after only 5 hours? :)
The cutting is the really hard part, so you're doing a great service to take care of that at home.

WOW... those pillow cases are quite unique and should warm the hearts of the recipients. Your reward is gratifying just knowing they will bring smiles to those in need.
