UPDATE! :http://craftgrrl.livejournal.com/13721849.html

(I'm sure you all are tired of hearing from me by now - Sorry!)

So it's been brought to my attention that Sew Expo has a crafting for charity thing called pillow case patrol. It's where a bunch of seamstresses and embroiderers make pillow cases for the kids at Mary Bridge Childrens Hospital. Last year they took in 2800 pillowcases which is about a 3 month supply.

I really think that for our first Craftgrrl Craft for Charity we should get in on this. A pillowcase only takes about a yard and a half of fabric (HELLO STASH BUSTER!) and is so insanely easy to make that even the most inexperienced of us could do them... not to mention it's for a good cause. Pillowcases are even light enough that maybe the non-US based craftgrrls could participate.

We could make them, send them all to one place and then have them all delivered to Sew Expo in March with a big note that says something like <3 craftgrrl with the names of everyone who participated. We could even have a photo gallery for you all to upload pics of your pillow cases before you send them off.

What do you guys think? WHO IS WITH ME?!?!?!

This is probably my most favorite piece yet! I pushed my scarf-creativity to new limits! Take a look at the new scarf:

Wait... the below picture is a scarf?? See the whole thing here! )

I keep making insanely large and ridiculously complicated cross stitch projects, but this one kinda turned out quite nicely, I guess!

More pics and stuff over at my journal.
