Good Morning my sweet peeps! Yesterday I finished the binding and made two pillowcases.





I learned a long time ago that it doesn't pay to try to make fancy pillows for the bed.  Something about men and more pillows than needed on the bed?  Go figure.

We also do not like large pillows, so this was easy.

Yes, that is exercise equipment in my bedroom.....it got oust from it's original place just recently....

I think it is beautiful and the pillowcases are perfect. We don't do big pillows either.
