Soldier pillowcases

I made 5 pillowcases last Monday at our mini-retreat. One of our guild members is a member of the Red cross and passes out the beautiful quilts to the wounded soldiers at Andrews Air Force Base. She told us they got a donation of 150 pillows and needed pillowcases for them. Each soldier gets a pillow when they are transferred to another hospital or released. I can't wait to go to guild Wednesday and see how many we all made. I know one woman made 30!!! If I was stashbusting, this would be a good way to use it up. Ahhh but unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on your point of view) I am not a member of that club so I just use and replace (not necessarily in that order) at will.

I was very busy sewing over the weekend but can't show you anything. I am working on the mystery project for our retreat and I know some of the ladies read my blog. Last Year I did this one (scroll down to see the correct photo) by Mary Johnson. This year we have an Asian theme. Tomorrow I'll show you the "ugly" fabric that we are supposed to make blocks to trade.

Until next time...
