Pillowcases Collected!

Knot Just Knit-Wit's met tonight to collect the handmade pillowcases that we all made as part of the latest Craft Hope project.  We ended up with 21 cases for the Doerenbacher Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon.  Yeah!  What a great project that is made extra special knowing that it will bring smiles to the faces of children right here in our own lovely state.
One of our very own Knit-Wit's has a nephew who was treated at Doerenbacher's twice as a young boy, so the project touches very close to home.
Thanks, Knit-Wit's, for jumping into this project with both feet.  Awesome!

(Knit-Wit's pictured above - Sheila, Becky, Denise and Alli.  I'm in the top picture and Diane and Stacey are not pictured.  That's what happens when you go on vacation or live in far away places like North Dakota.)

UPDATE:  25 pillowcases now.  Thank you, Reggie!

How awesome! Those pillowcases sure are going to make some kiddos happy. I love the name of your group - he he

The new header is great too ... I wanna come sit and relax there!

How fun to see all the pretty fabric!!!
I think they should move North Dakota closer to Oregon so I could see them in person.

They're stunning! What a wonderful gesture and sure to bring a welcome smile to a child.

Great pictures! It was so much fun to do this group project with everyone and see all the fun pillowcases. Thanks for being such a good ring-leader...even if you are just knit-wit :)

Awesome!!! Thanks for inviting me to be part of the project. I forgot to email you and tell you I would be gone the day you collected them - and my life had gone into overdrive before vacation. Will you be doing it again? If so, please let me know. I'd love to be part of the project with you. And I would drive to Astoria to be part of the fun on collection day. I really believe this makes a difference in kids' lives.

Way to go! I can't wait to find out what the next Craft Hope project will be. I think they announce it next Thursday. I sure hope it's something I know how to do!
