Cushions for a Cause

Back in January I told you that my friend Carol from Naturally Carol had put out A Call for Cushions to collect pillow covers to distribute to flood-affected families and individuals in Queensland, Australia. As of right now she has collected 43 pillows! At the end of last week I sent a package off to Carol with four pillow covers: two from myself and two from my mother.

These are the two that I made...

And these are the two that my mother made. She had some leftover quilt squares from a swap she was involved in a few years ago. They made great pillows.

I love knowing that these pillows will go to people who will really appreciate them and need a little sunshine in their lives. Carol, thank you so much for the opportunity to help.

They turned out great! I am really wanting to do more charity sewing. Dana posted about a book that gives you ideas of things to make and where to donate. I love the ric-rac detail on the back of one of the pillows- how fun!

Wonderful cushions. They will be so appreciated and you are nice to participate. It seems we crafty women love to share and what better way than to someone who needs so much.

What nice pillows! I'm still working on my pillows for Carol. I want to use my stash but first that means I have to have my stash under control. I'm almost there!
