= 2 pillowcases for 2 young people who are just leaving their 2nd decade of life.

Did you know that my bff D has twins? She does. I think that's cool.

They're turning 20 in a few weeks and D asked me to make some pillowcases like the one I made for her husband for his birthday. She picked out the fabrics and I put them together. I love this pattern. It's so easy, and quick and fun to make.

One of her twins, the boy Q, is serving a mission for our church in New York City. He's working with the deaf, sharing the good word of God in American Sign Language. He's a cool kid, and a good boy. I taught him and his twin sister C for 3 years in Early Morning Seminary.

With the afghan for James that I finished yesterday and these pillowcases out of the way, my mountain of unfinished projects is shrinking. It's almost more like a "pending project pile" than an unfinished project mountain. I'm determined to get all the way to the bottom of it. Check back here tomorrow for a look at another project that I finished today.

Even though I still have a huge number of projects that aren't completed, you want to know what am I doing late at night when I can't sleep? Surfing the Internet for free knitting and crochet and quilt patterns, that's what. Some things I can't seem to quite overcome.

I'm okay with that though. I'm a dreamer and a planner and a looking-forward-to things kind of girl.


  1. I think you're just a terrific kind of girl--whatever you're doing! I can't wait to see you,

  2. OK I have to know if I guessed right... which one is Q's and which is C's?
