I continue to be inspired by the generosity of so many sewists. With this week's addition, the count stands at 194 donated pillowcases. Incredible!!
This week I received 5 from a wonderful lady, Cennetta of http://themahoganystylist.blogspot.com/.
Lauren included a note,
"The pillowcases project was a lot of fun. I made a lot of mistakes, cut things wrong and got things nipped by the serger. I broke so many needles because I had the tension wrong. However, I learned that sometimes recovery is possible, that improvisation is a good thing and that little details make all the difference."
"Who would have thought that making pillowcases would be so much fun. The added benefit was that I got to use up some of my fabric stash!"
So, for anyone who is new to this, I am trying to collect 900 pillowcases for the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma, Washington. Each child who is admitted to the hospital is given the opportunity to choose a pillowcase. The cases add color and joy to an all to white and sterile environment. If you would like to donate a pillowcase, even 1 would be appreciated, please email me at email@example.com and let me know. The drive for pillowcases will continue through the summer so there is plenty of time.
Here is a link to the simplified instructions that I posted, http://www.rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-simplified-pillowcase-instructions.html The pillowcases are very easy to make and go together in no time at all.
Thank you Cennetta, Lauren and Joanne. You're just the best ;)
