The Pillowcase Count Continues To Grow!

Last week's pillowcase post was so exciting! Even the liaison from Mary Bridge Children's Hospital was excited about the 101 pillowcase post.  
We've come a long way, but we have quite a journey still in front of us.
This week proved to be a banner pillowcase week as I received quite a few.
I received a message from Maggie asking about what types of prints to use. She said she had some religious prints as well as some patriotic prints and I told her to go for it. Within a few hours I received another message asking for my address so she could send the cases to me and I was amazed and replied, "that was quick!". She laughed and said that she already had them made but just wanted to check before sending them.
Then I received 9 cases from Cynthia who lives in central Illinois.
Check out this wild little print.
 Just so cute!!
 I received another 9 from Nancy.
She had a little "help" with her pillowcases. Actually, her little niece had come for a visit and was intrigued with the project so Nancy gave her a little lesson.   
 And look at what she did!!!! Look at the pride in that little face. Beautiful!
So to date we are now at 125 and counting. We'll be at the 450 mark before you know it! Thanks to everyone for your generous donations. I know I say this every week, but it deserves to be repeated.
Nancy is a friend of mine and we talked about the pattern that I have included each week. I am not going to continue to include that pattern as there is a much easier way to make the cases so I will be posting a tutorial on how I do the cases. If you remember, I've pledged 200, so I had to make the process easy. You are welcome to use whatever method you prefer. If you would like to contribute to the project, just email me and let me know, sewbussted@yahoo.com.

Remember, the deadline has been extended so there is plenty of time to make a few pillowcases if you can.
