It seems that I have only been posting of late after a tragedy. That has been true, but once again there is a need.

With the tragedy in the Connecticut school that struck the hearts of so many across the world just a few days ago, leaves most of us with questions that may not ever be answered.  But if one of the questions you have is what can you do to help make a difference in the children who did physically survive this ordeal there is something that may seem simple but it could still be so touching to know they are being thought of as well.  And you can do this easily with your own children, it is making pillowcases!  :-)

I saw on Facebook yesterday that Becky, of Quilter's Corner  is trying to collect 600 new home-made pillow cases for the children who still attend Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut by the return of Christmas break.  

Quliter's Corner in New Milford, CT is collecting pillowcases for the children at Sandy Hook School. She is trying to collect around 600.  Please pass this message to any sewing friends. Pillowcases can be mailed to her at:  Quilters Corner, 312 Danbury Rd, New Milford, CT. 06776.  

Okay, I can make a few pillow cases. The best part is this video on how to make the tube pillow cases from when Missouri Quilt Co was helping to raise a Million Pillowcase Challenge.

Easy Tube Pillow Case Tutorial - Support the Million Pillowcase Challenge! 

This is the easiest, cutest, quickest pillowcase y
ou will ever make! 

So now, can you make a pillow case or two? I do hope you join me in this effort.

Ciao for now! :)
Take care, J
