    I got up, decided to make pillow cases for nieces and nephews for Christmas. I called work and said I'd be in late after I got a few done. (Never got to work at all :-) ) Finished them last night.

    Even better - decided I would not go to the LQS for fabric but would shop my stash. I found great fabrics in my own stash - I doubt I would have found anything I liked better at the shop and now I feel so virtuous that I might need to reward myself with a trip to the LQS (just kidding).

    Still have to bind a quilt for my son before the big day, but I am getting there.

    Beautiful pillowcases. I made several this year as Christmas gifts. Kept a couple for myself. I just love them.

    I love your stash. But now you have a legitimate reason to restock the yardage used.

    Great job. I love pillowcases. So personal, comforting, and great way to use both deco stitches and stash fabrics. Great to make coordinating kids' pjs and pillowcases. Only prob is quilting cottons can be so wrinkley. Hate to give a gift that requires ironing. Any solution for that except chemicals?

    you did a great job (and could use fabric from your stash)

    I think now you need to reward yourself and go shopping at LQS

    I made and embroidered 10 as gifts last year and I felt the same way. I kept one for my grand when she visits and they do get softer with each washing. The only solution I have found is to take them out of the dryer immediately.

    The pillowcases are gorgeous, I can't imagine having all that coordinating fabric in my stash lol!!!!
