Good Morning Everyone! The day was not as I have planned.... again! I'm sure glad I'm learning not to be tied to my schedule.

These are the first of the pillow cases I've started making for Christmas. They ended up taking much longer than I expected because I picked a satin stich style. But they are super sweet and I fear I'll have trouble parting with them.

Late yesterday we received a call that someone is coming from out of town to see our home today. Mad dash! We had let it go a bit, but after 3 hours of cleaning and reorganizing it is back in shape. I just have some minor things for this morning. I'm trying not to get too excited/scared about the prospect of this being "the one". It will open a whole new can of worms for us and deepening our trust in the Lord!

I have a neat Frugal Friday post coming up this week and I'll also post picks of the vintage house coats I made for each of the chickadees. Next on the list is nighties! Check back if you can!

What a beautiful pillowcase!

As far as the clothesline you just pull the rope towards you or reel it out away from you on the pulley.
The black thing holds the two strings of rope together and travels with the line.
I'm sure if you google pulley clothesline, you would find directions on how to install it.
Good luck!
