101 to be exact! I received a package from Ilse, the second package mind you, just a few days ago. Inside were 9 more pillowcases! So Ilse, you were the one to put us over the first 100. As I told you last week, I know there are more that are finished, but I don't have them in my hands...yet. Jenny has 26 completed and Dolores has 10, so that's another 36, putting us at 137. But, I really don't like to count chickens before they hatch, so I will patiently wait until they too are in my hands.
Mary Bridge. Every month they pass out 900 pillowcases to the children who are being treated. They find that the pillowcases add a bright touch to an all too white room, and the parents are greatly touched by the generosity of so many kind people who take the time to make a pillowcase.
I will be collecting pillowcases until the end of summer. I am hoping for 900. I'm very optimistic and I am trusting that we'll get there :-)

Thank you to all who have so generously donated to this project.
The next pillowcase pictures will be of all 101 hanging in the breeze. I think it will be a beautiful sight!!!
