Words can't even describe how sad and helpless I felt in the last few days as the details of the horrible shooting in Connecticut kept emerging. Being a mother of three school agers myself, I just could not imagine the horror and despair all those families are going through.
And then I got an email saying that Quilters Corner in Milford, CT is collecting pillow cases to give to the Sandy Hook elementary children when they return to school after winter break. I knew that was something I could do. I went through my stash looking for some pinks and blues and I got to work.
I made three pillow cases using Kerri's wonderful tutorial. They were quick, and fun to make. And, I was really happy I could, in this very small way, show my support and care to this hurting community.
Here's the address where the pillow cases can be sent in case you'd like to make some, too:
312 Danbury Rd.
