Sewing Sunday

Mom's favorite sewing shop is participating in the Million Pillowcase Challenge. Make a Difference. Every pillowcase can make a difference in your community. A pillowcase can provide comfort for a cancer patient, hope for a foster child, encouragement for a battered woman, or beauty for a nursing home resident.

With every thing else going on in our family, Mom did not get to work on these as much as she wanted to. So today she and Dad set up an assembly line and made 16 pillowcases. Dad is good at measuring and cutting and pressing while Mom sews!

Kirby wanted to help!

These are the different cases. Mom made duplicates of some. Most of the fabric was from her stash with a little accent colors she got yesterday.

Mom will turn them in tomorrow.

Kirby, good thing you helped your Mom. She probably wouldn't have gotten that many done without your help.
Nice job Mom!
