I don’t know why, but I imagined “dresden” being moaned like “zombiessssss…”

So, at 8pm on Thursday night, Mr. Yazoo got a call from his sister to let him know that their dad was treating family dinner the following night as their grandma’s early birthday. Bwhuh? No notice! Ever eager as I am to justify my piles and piles of fabric, I dashed out to buy a pillow form and then made this cover (using Amy’s terrific tips) before I went to bed.

I had visions of making a cute, modern, hand-quilted pillow cover, but 1) the dresden I made took up most of the blank space and 2) I wanted to get at least four and a half hours of sleep before work the next morning. :>
