New Project!

I hope everyone is enjoying this winter weather, or at least a day off of school! Today I took some time to organize and finish up pillow cases which will be donated to Ryan’s Cases for Smiles. This incredible organization has already donated over 1,700,000 pillow cases to children who are in extended hospital stays battling childhood cancer. I will be dropping off 50 pillow cases on Friday!

This is my first time donating my pillow cases to this organization, but when I read about their mission I just knew I wanted to help. I have seen how excited children get when they have a bright, cheery pillowcase to call their own and I am excited to know that these pillow cases will be going to some of the same hospitals I have donated to before including CHOP, St. Christopher’s, and Ronald McDonald House.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support me with my projects – I could not do it without your donations of fabric, supplies, and of course, the help of my American Sewing Guild friends who never let me down when I announce a new project! I’m still finishing up some wheelchair bags to take to the nursing home – I’ll be sure to post as soon as they are done and ready to be delivered!
