The pillowcases are beginning to pour in. Maybe I should say fly in since they are coming form so many directions!
Today I have a dozen from Daisy and as all of the pillowcases have been, hers are lovely.
and look how cute these are.
A goose with it's wing in a sling,
Thank you Daisy for your lovely contribution. With Daisy's addition, that puts us at 276. I have so many coming in, so next week there will be a number of pillowcase posts. I think that everyone should be featured for their generosity.
In the off chance that you do not know about the project, I am collecting 900 handmade pillowcases for the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma, Washington. I have committed to making 200 of the 900, so I actually need 700 donated cases. Each child who is admitted to the hospital is given the opportunity to choose a pillowcase for their own. How lovely for them to be able to rest their head on a pillowcase made with love. At this point we are well on our way to the half way mark of 450 pillowcases. I should be able to do the big hanging of the 450 the week of August 12th. I couldn't get through the video I did for the first 100 without crying. I'm going to be a basket case over 450!!!!! I'm so excited about reaching this point and I thank everyone who has helped. It means the world.
If you would like to make a few or even just one, here is a link to the simplified instructions that I did, http://www.rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-simplified-pillowcase-instructions.html. And if you would like to see the previous posts that I've done, including the celebration of the first 100, you can find all the posts here, http://www.rhondabuss.blogspot.com/search/label/Mary%20Bridge.
