    My mom and I are crazy. We get going together and get crazy ideas....lol....so here's what happened. I made some tube pillowcases for a lady with embroidery, they turned out so nice, we decided to make like 100 of them for a craft sale coming up in December and then maybe list some on etsy. So we are over half way done with them and planning on trying to get them done tomorrow. I have to go back to work on Monday, so we need to get as much done as possible while I'm off.
    Why 100???? We can't just make a couple and see how it goes, we over do it all the time. At least, I'm not this crazy by myself and I got someone to do it with, right?!?!?! :roll:

    You are so lucky you can have fun and spend time with your mom! My mom passed away when she was 54. Enjoy your time with her.

    I do hope they all sell...lol...or I don't know what we will do with them all. Lol...we got my oldest helping us today, she's ironing while my mom is cutting off the salvages and I was sewing them. It's working great. I have to take a break for another thanksgiving lunch and back to sewing. I'll take pics when we are done. We should have them all done today.

    I can't wait to see what they looks like. You just need to tell the kids what doesn't sell ~ that's what they get as their Christmas gifts. I think they'll tell all their friends to have their Mom's go to the sale.....so they get other items for Christmas. :) The kids can even make up like lil invitations~ !! Anything to help you pass them on.

    This all sounds like so much fun! A lot of work, too.

    Good luck with the sale. How about a picture of your Booth at the sale?

    ya!!! we already called one of my daughter's freinds and asked if she was going to help iron and sew next time we decide to do something like this again. She has some really good friends that don't get to do much crafts unless they are with us....and they love it.
    The invitations would be great for the kids to do. Lol....they might be ok with only getting pillowcases though. My kids are a little strange.
