We had the privilege of visiting UPMC Mercy Hospital Trauma Burn Unit yesterday with a delivery of pillowcases we’d made. Lydia got to visit with a few of the pediatric patients and let them choose a pillowcase from what we had brought. We got to see what fabrics are most popular with the children.
It’s been a year since Lydia’s friend was a patient there. Lydia’s friend is doing well. Since even visiting a trauma burn unit can be very difficult, it’s good to know there can be healing and recovery.
We’ve contributed a few pillowcases to some other causes we wanted to share with you.
We know a dog named Lolly who is undergoing chemotherapy to battle lymphoma. Lolly is a certified therapy and emotional support dog. These two pillowcases will be in an auction to help with the costs of Lolly’s medical treatments.
Here’s one pillowcase that is going in a basket that will be raffled off to raise money for brain cancer.
December is a busy month for many people. Sadly the winter months are also busy for burn and trauma units in hospitals. Here are a few pillowcases packed in individual bags, ready to be mailed to UPMC Mercy.

Today Lydia and I made a delivery of a few more pillowcases to UPMC Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh. Here’s a picture showing a few of the newest pillowcases.
Thanks goes to Gilda and Brenda for donating fabric to help with the pillowcase project! Brenda gave the patriotic patchwork and Gilda gave the stars!
Lydia, Lydia’s friend Mia, and I went to UPMC Mercy this afternoon to deliver pillowcases. The staff there is made up of some of the most caring, compassionate people you could ever meet. God Bless them for the work they do! The girls had both been to the unit previously to visit their classmate who had been a patient at the Trauma and Burn Center this winter. That friend is back to school and doing well. Thank you, God!

Got four more pillowcases made yesterday for the initial delivery to UPMC Mercy!
This was a good week – we got a few pillowcases sewn. We’re trying to get a good number made for the first delivery to the hospital. We’d like every patient in the burn unit to have one plus spares for distribution going forward.
Welcome to SewnWithLove! We are a mother and daugher who both enjoy sewing. Check back for more updates!
