My February goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to make twelve pillowcases. Part of the retreat I attend every June is making something for a charity. For many years we made 22" quilts, aka Love Covers, for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Louis Children's Hospital. One year we made a quilt for every retired nun at The Mercy Center. For several years now we have been making pillowcases for the patients at Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.
We started out a little slow in 2011.
We made quite a few more in 2012.
In 2013 we really outdid ourselves.
This year every person who attends the retreat is being challenged to make twelve pillowcases, that's only one a month so should be very doable. I pulled fabric this week for pillowcases so that will be my goal for February - to make my twelve pillowcases for retreat.
I think it's a nice variety of fabrics. Something for everyone from toddler to teen.
I'm linking up with the Goal Setting Party at Fiber of All Sorts for A Lovely Year of Finishes where I am goal #112.
