To see updates on what is going on with my pillowcases please check out my facebook page at facebook.com/avereeanne. I can update my facebook page with little help from my mom. This web page is more difficult for me to try to do. I am still doing my pillowcases and I'm very active in my 4H projects. I do add all the things that are going on with my 4H and pillowcases on my facebook page so all of my supporters can stay up on the lastest news. Thanks so much for supporting me! It means so much to me!!:) As of the end of June 2012 I have made 570 pillowcases! I hope that means 570 smiles to someone that was needing a little sunshine and happiness!!!

I have had a very busy couple of weeks!

Wow!  I have been super busy!  I made all my 57 pillowcases in 11 days.  I sewed for hours and hours at a time to get them done.  I was in a big hurry because I had a chance to deliver them in person to the hospital.  I was going to the hospital to meet Aliyah.  She received one of my pillowcases while she was in the hosptial.  It was great meeting her!

I have been very busy getting interviewed for TV. I have two different stories coming out.The first is with Sarah Hill on KMOU TV on Sarah's Stories.  It will be on Monday, December 19th.  The second will be released later that week on KRCG TV.

I'm very excited about both stories.  I'm hoping people will see that there is a need to help these sick children and that they can also do something to help bring a little sunshine and happiness into their lives while they are not having many good days! 

Please help anyway you can.  These children have so many things going on in their lives that any act of kindness that you can do for them will mean so much!! Not only will it make them feel good it will make you feel good!  Help spread sunshine and happiness!! :)

The most exciting day ever!!!

I have the most exciting news!! I got to meet the owner of Bernina sewing machines!! H P Ueltschi is the fourth generation owner of Bernina.  He is a super nice man!  I got to tell him about my Pocketful of Sunshine project.  He signed lots of stuff for me too.  I also got a new sewing machine that day and he signed it!!  He came to the local Bernina dealer.  I had been counting down the days for two months to meet him! I was so excited about meeting him and then my mom surprised me with a new sewing machine!!

What a great pack of boys!

I was invited to attend the local Boy Scouts pack 30 meeting this week. They donated some money to help me with my project. It was so nice of them to thank of me and my project! It was fun at their meeting. Did you know when they earn a certain badge they get turned upside down by their leaders and the badge gets pinned on them. They have to keep the badge upside down until they do a good deed. It was fun watching them get their badge! Thanks boys!
