Finished for Friday: Harry and Pillowcases

The kids and I are pretty excited to see the next Harry Potter movie.  We have our tickets for tomorrow.  To refresh my memory, I read the seventh book over again this week.  I re-read books quite often.  Can't wait for these to come out on the Kindle because our copies are pretty worn out.


I also started making pillowcases.  The local quilt shop is collecting handmade pillowcases for victims of the fire in San Bruno, which isn't far from where we live.  This is turning out to be a good way to use up my fabric stash.  Once I got in there and started digging around, I found all kinds of stuff I had forgotten about.  I'm enjoying using it for a good cause. 

I know many of you enjoy getting your links up on Thursday evenings, but next Thursday is Thanksgiving and I may be a little delayed getting that post up.  Apologies in advance!

Now show us what you've been up to!  I love seeing all of your creative projects.  Be sure to visit some of the other participants as well.  Have a great weekend.

Now I know what to do with all those cutsie kid prints in my stash that my boys have grown out of.

Do you think they'd take a pillowcase covered in antique handguns? Or perhaps dreidels?

Those pillowcases are so fun! I love them and what a worthy cause!

Also, I love, love, love HP! Don't have my tickets yet, but hope to see it soon. Have a terrific time!

How right you are, pillowcases are a great way to use up smaller pieces of fabric. I do the same for the Quilts Of Valor for wounded warriors and sometimes with other gift quilts for family.
