Paula's pillowcase project

I spent my day helping my friend Paula Yost at her second annual pillowcase project. I was so thankful that I had the opportunity to be a part of it today. You can get more information about the project here

My two littlest kiddos got in on the action and helped make cards to send with the pillowcases.

Around 60 volunteers made the day run smoothly with cutting stations, pinning stations, ironing stations and sewing stations. Guess which one I manned?
A few of the completed cases before they got packaged up!
My amazing ironing accomplice during the day. She made the whole day run smoothly and of course, helped keep me in line!
Some of the women that helped with the packaging. Everyone knows, it's all about presentation!
The completed project! Nearly 150 pillowcases were made to donate to Seattle Children's Hospital.

It's odd, but this reminds me of how I spent a month in hospital when I was a kid. I remember the jammies my grandmother bought me- yellow with a cartoon character on the shirt- and how she would smuggle in homemade soups for me to eatr as the hospital food was, of course, appaling.
Small things can make a massive difference, and I absolutely love the pillowcase thing! Gotta put this into my favourites and see if it is adaptable to anything local around here; british people are really into charity, maybe it catches on!
