We got to spend some time with Gretel on the open roads. Gretel is, for those who don’t know, our recently purchased 1949 Chevy 3100 pickup truck. (I will have to do a story on her real soon.) Anyway, it was Father’s Day on Sunday and after our morning church service, we relaxed at home for awhile before doing some work on Gretel. She has a good bit of restoration still to be done, but its exciting to drive down the road in her. No radio, no AIR, no electronics – just the open road and a really cool old truck!
On my quest to return to crafting (and blogging) I have been looking all over the internet – ok, Pinterest for the most part – to find fun things to work on and write about. So my newest fixation is pillowcases. I have a TON of these things in my house. With 5 beds, and a grandmother who enjoyed embroidering anything she could put in her hands – pillowcases are in abundance around our place. So why not put some of them to a different use.
Here are some of the ideas I found. Have you tried any of these? Have an idea of your own you want to share? Please let me know!! I will share some of my completed projects as soon as I get to them. 🙂
