Here it is, Friday again - - - can you believe it? It's been such a tumultuous week that it seems like a long time since last Friday, but we're here again, and I hope you've got a little time to do some whooping with me! Let's get started!
Last Friday, I mentioned that our church quilt ministry would be making pillowcases to send to Texas for Hurricane Harvey victims. Well, the idea took wing and people started asking if they could also send pillowcases to us to help - and so A Heart For Texas was born!
For details on the pillowcase drive and how to participate, please check out this post. We'll be taking pillowcases at least through the end of September (maybe longer depending on Hurricane Irma!) and may have a quilt drive in October.
So today I spent some time making pillowcase kits for our monthly sewing day this Saturday (I've got plenty more to make tomorrow!) We'll be using this tutorial to make ours, although there are a lot of great tutorials out there. And we'll be hosting a hands-on activity at our local fall festival next week, getting the community involved in making pillowcases for Texas!
Today I made labels to be pinned on the pillowcases, which will be filled in with the maker's first name and location. My hope is that this will remind the recipient that people all over the country are thinking about them and praying for them!
So - - - can we all get a whoop whoop??
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you dance a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you -
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
