Here’s my latest pillowcase trimmed with baby yarn this time.
I tried using two colors, and I like the way it looks with this pillowcase.
I’m so happy to have some of these of my very own. I’ve wanted to make them for the longest.
Go ahead…take the plunge and just make one of your own. It’s not hard. Just a little measuring, marking, stitching, and then the fun crochet to top it all off. It’s a nice relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
Susan had a question: Where did you get a needle big enough to handle yarn...yet sharp enough to pierce through cloth??? I get my needles at Hobby Lobby in the crochet section by the crochet hooks. There are usually two or three sizes to a package. The trick is you don’t go through two layers of fabric. You put your needle below the sewn edge. It is harder to get your needle through the side seam where you have two or more layers of fabric, but it’s doable. It’s the same needles I use for weaving in my ends of yarn when I crochet, and I have no problem at all getting the yarn through the eye. You can see the size I use in one of the pictures from my first pillowcase post.
Teresa & Kris: Where did you go in Louisiana? We went to Shreveport/Bossier City to the casinos. We stayed at the El Dorado Hotel/Casino this time.
Corn Relish & Chicken Salad
(Recipe in previous post)
We had the Corn Relish Salads Friday night for dinner. They were so good! I took my own advice and bought a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. I also added chopped green onion and a couple of chopped Roma tomatoes.
I’m waiting for my cousin to get back to me with my Aunt’s recipe for Fried Okra Salad. She has brought it to our family picnic a couple of times, and it’s really good too. Don’t be afraid of the OKRA, you big babies! Put on your big girl panties and sit up to the table and EAT IT! I’ll send you to bed without supper, dammit!
I mean, uh, stay tuned for the recipe. So sorry. I lost my train of thought for a second there. The heat is making me irritable. Yeah, that’s it…it’s the heat.
ANYWHO…Cousin Sharon? Did you get my email? Don’t make me come over there! ;)
