    Default Pillowcases Galore plus Quilts

    This is the treasure trove I brought back from our M* forum retreat. 38 pillowcases, and 6 quilts. This doesn't include the numerous tops, and unfinished cases to do (donated by Charyti, and many by Peggy Anne) Also the many yds of fabric that were purchased, by Steve, (JudyUSMC's hubby) just for me to make pillowcases. Quilters are the most generous people.
    I cannot thank everyone enough for their generosity, but it means more to me than you can possibly know. Bless each and every one of you for caring enough about the kids and me to give me so very much. You truly do humble me.

    That's wonderful Marilyn. I know the kids will feel the comfort of home when they have them.

    That's terrific, Marilyn. I knew those piles were getting deeper by the hour. It's a wonder you didn't pop wheelies on the way home.

    This is a most generous group of people and we should all be honored to be part of something so HUGE when the world is falling apart around us. Too bad the media isn't reporting on all the goodness that is going on. I think goodness begets goodness. Your efforts are astounding Marilyn , from what I hear on this forum and knowing just how much these charity event take out of a person, God bless you. Of course, they give us back a great deal in making our hearts just a little fuller.

    I finally got to empty the box that Charyti sent me home as well. It included 11 and 38 pillowcases that I just have to finish the final french seam....how awesome is that?

    Beautiful! What a great group of people who gave time and money for your cause! It would bring tears to my eyes to see the joy in a kid who gets to choose from all those wonderful pillowcases!
