On the edge...

OK. I admit it. I'm excited (I would say obsessed, but that is such a strong word, I won't use it). When wandering through blogland, as I do quite often at night, I stumbled on these gorgeous pillowcases at rosehip.typepad.com I scrolled and scrolled through Beata's blog, the beautiful photos just kept coming. These were the most beautiful pillowcases on the planet. Luscious fabrics (and you know how I love fabric), luscious crochet trim. Did I say "crochet" trim??? Oh. My. Goodness. I can't crochet!!! But, I MUST. I have got to have these. A quick phone call to my friend and she assures me she can teach me to crochet. I must learn, I must! These are the most beautiful pillowcases. I. MUST. HAVE. THEM! I can't get them out of my head. How soon can I get to a fabric store? How on earth will I know what kind of yarn to buy to do the trim? My precious friend goes shopping and comes home with a sack full of the most beautiful colors of yarn that I could possibly want. She knows me so well, she chose the perfect colors for me. (Isn't she so sweet?) A few days go by and I'm checking out the new posts on the blogs that I have linked to my own. I click on Bitty Bits and Pieces - the entry is about another blog "You Go Girl". Cassie at You Go Girl is doing a tutorial on the wonderful pillowcases I saw on Rose Hip! It is such a small world. I am not the only one that was excited over the pillowcases. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my little heart for the wonderful tutorial Cassie. It is so much fun following along. I can't wait to get to the next step. Here is a photo of my two pillowcases so far...
