On May 3rd I read a post by Carol at Brown Quilts that really touched my heart. She has a friend who has worked tirelessly to bring a bit of home to our fallen soldiers recuperating at Walter Reed, those going off to war at airports and USO rooms, etc by giving red, white, and blue pillowcases and quilts to these brave souls. Well she was recently diagnosed with cancer in her hip, pelvis and Stage 4 in her lung. The doctor has said 12 to 18 months. What amazed me is that this brave woman is still working to bring a bit of home to the soldiers at Ft. Collins, GA and because of her cancer asked Carol if she could help her out and maybe deliver them to the soldiers there - she's still working tirelessly and unselfishly to provide something for our service men and women with all she's going through.
So Carol put out a call in the blog community to make pillowcases to help her friend out. These pillow cases would be delivered in late summer - so there is still time if you'd like to help out as well. I spent this weekend putting together a few pillow cases to send to Carol this week and here are my results:
I hope you'll visit Carol's blog here and think about helping out with this project. As for me I'll be spending the day making a patriotic wall hanging for the house, after all 4th of July will be here before I know it.
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
