I am alive and busy!
If you want to hear about some of our activities, Sara keeps her blog up to date. I am excited about our latest project however. I finished the flyer today for advertising. Our project is called "Making a Case". We plan to make 400 pillowcases and give new pillows and cases to the people who come to the December Love Feast at the Methodist Church and to the people at the Safehouse and to the Abbott House. I made three pillowcases tonight and I ordered 5 buy one-get one free pillows at Kohls yesterday. We are asking for people to make cases, donate pillows or just donate money so all the worker bees can sew up the goods. We are calling it Pillows for People and using Matthew 11:28 as a verse - Come ye to me all ye who labor and are heavy laden and I shall give you rest. I will try to take some pictures of the cases. I made one tonight with beautiful cowboy boots on the main fabric and put a batik topper that looked like leather. I made another with jungle animals and a zebra topper. We have a little over sixty days to accomplish this.
