Well its not a super huge accomplishment but I finished 2 pillow cases today. I did pull out the new brother machine and used it because I still haven't figured out the tension problem with my other machine. I'm not sure what to do about that. But I used my brother embroidery machine for regular sewing and it was great!! When I find what I did with my camera I will get a picture of the two pillow cases.. One is cowboy boots for my friend Amanda and Curious George for my brother.
Earlier I posted about what to use as a gift for them.. Well I used the pillow cases a chocolate bunny and some other little things sunflower seeds, note paper, playing cards, pez dispensers. One of these days I'll have to post all about my brothers PEZ collection. I don't remember what started it, it might have been the first time that I deployed because I found some great PEZ things overseas, but my brother now has probably one of the biggest PEZ collections in the state.
I took pictures of the pillow cases and will post those later. We are all watching "No Reservations" right now.
