I was able to sew the next two QOV pillowcases while DH, DD and DS went for a motorcycle ride.
The first two have the bright white stars and the later have the tone on tone stars. I cut a few different reds for the trim and a few different creams for the accent, so the next QOV pillowcases will have more variety!
These are the 'goodies' DD and I decided to purchase for donation. Microwave popcorn, beef jerky, assorted rice krispies treats, drink mixes and some hard candy. Cheryl is organizing the drive through her husband's work. The members bring the 'goodies' to the Oconomowoc Quilt Guild meeting, Cheryl takes it to work and the work will post the 'goodies' to the soldiers overseas! Thanks Cheryl for doing this for our guild! Last year, Cheryl organized an effort to make Christmas stockings along with the 'goodies'. She also provides a long list of 'goodies' via e-mail that can be sent to our soldiers. DD and I merely shopped off the list. :)
Another goal this week is to make a few of the cancer bags. These are tote bags will a little support pillow inside to be given to the patients at the Breast Cancer Treatment facility. When I get one done, I'll post it. I believe the bags are given to the patients so that they have a place to put any belongings they have when treatment begins. I'll ask on Thursday and let you guys know 'what' I find out. :)
And finally, I'd like to wish all Canadian citizens a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING! :)
