MAKING PILLOWCASES & MORE

Our "Chat & Sew" group at church made Pillowcases today to send to The National Children's Hospital in Quezon City, Manila, Philippines. I found out about this project on "Kelley Highway" a blog on the web.

Karen had the pattern and showed us all how to do it.

A rather blurry picture and not flattering of me for sure!

It was fun picking out the different materials for the cases!

The Go Go Girls +1 took part in the annual walk at Mill Walk Mall and did a total of 10 plus miles.

Great Grandson Eli loves to work his puzzles!

"Watch me Grandma"!

The zinnias are in full bloom now! This picture was taken a week or more ago.

I deadhead and save the  seeds  every year.

I have all colors, but more pink shades. I need to plant some red, yellow and white ones next year!

With all the rain the Wildflowers have been beautiful this year! Hope you are enjoying the summer. I invite you again to visit www.preciouscottage.blogspot.com and Marlynne Snare Folk Artist on Facebook too. Bye!

I'm SEW excited to see your pillowcases, Marlynne! I hope you gals had fun with them, chatting while you sewed! What a blessing you all are! I'll send you an e-mail with my mailing address. Cram as many pillowcases as you can into a flat rate envelope or box-- that's the cheapest way.

Your precious family and your lovely flowers make every summer's day so very special.

Hugs and happy highways,
Kelley~

You girls are always busy doing something! The pillowcases were a great idea! Very cute picture of Eli and his puzzle.
I had a pot of zinnias this year, but a naughty rabbit ate them all! Yours look wonderful!
Happy summer- Erica :)
