PILLOWCASES

Debra Spincic of http://debraspincicdesignstudio.blogspot.com has just set up a new blog for pillowcases to be made by us for a battalion of soldiers in Iraq. She needs 50 and is asking us to sign on for making 2 each and apparently dark colored prints or dark solids are preferred because of the washing problem. Some soldiers hang them up and pin pictures of their family on them. Come on gals let us help Deb make the 50 mark.

She has set up a new blog: http://operationpillowcase.blogspot.com where you can sign up. Wouldn't it be great if we could find a pin-up girl fabric for them? Start looking. I will give a prize to the first one to sign up and find a great pin-up fabric.

I am sorry but you will have to copy and paste the links as I cannot get them to highlight.
