Craft Hope pillowcases

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time
Craft Hope has another project going.
Project 9.
You may remember about 2 months or so ago they were raising hand made washcloths for the people cleaning the animals from the Gulf oil spill.
This time they're collecting pillowcases for an organization called Conkerr Cancer.
They give pillowcases to childrens' hopsitals around the nation to give to cancer patients.

So...why am I posting about this??
Well, I know that a few of you friends of mine are of the sewing kind:) & thought you might like to join me in making some pillowcases for some sick/healing kids.
You can read more about it HERE.

If you are interested...
Make as many as you'd like, then you can drop them with me at home, church, with Mitchel...(you get the idea) & I'll take care of the rest.
One of the cool things about this is, you find the chapter in your home town & send them to the coordinator. So our pillow cases will be going to kids at Children's Medical Center Dallas or Medical City Children's Hospital Dallas. I really like that. Hits home a little harder for me.
The deadline is September 15th. I'd like to have them all by the 12th, to get organized & then get them sent.
It's a great way to get kids involved with helping others too.
Miss P & I are already making plans on what kinds of fabric to buy for these kids.
She knows how it feels to be sick.
But she doesn't know that some kids are sick for a very long time & have to stay in the hospital until they are all better.
We'll be talking about that & reading some books to help her understand that she's one blessed lady & to help her WANT to help these sick kids. We'll probably make some cards to go along with our pillowcases. She likes making cards. It works out...

If you want to join me...leave me a comment & we'll work out the details:).
If not, no big deal.
But would you join us in praying for these families over the next week?
Thanks! Yay!

By the way:
Beach pictures are coming...

Consider this your warning. We're a picture crazy family.
So thankful for healthy babies...
