I've got a couple of things to donate this week.
1. A blanket made for Project Linus. This pulls at my heartstrings terribly. Their mission is to provide handmade blankets and afghans to children that are seriously ill, victims of a violent crime, or in need of warmth, comfort, and the security that a warm blanket can give them. I love, love, love it. You can go to their website and find a local chapter near you, and I encourage you to do so.
2. On a more personal note, I am donating a block to Moda Fabrics for their 'Just One Star Can Comfort a Solider' campaign. You can read more about it, get the pattern, and the address of where to send it here. My wonderful, loving, awesome hubby is a former Navy Sailor, and was medically discharged last October. The whole ordeal was the most difficult, trying time of our entire relationship and marriage, but we've become so much closer, and have developed a stronger relationship. I get a little teary when I read about a soldier who is coming home to their family broken, beaten, and forever changed. I hope that my contribution will change the life of at least one man or woman fighting for the country I love.
In the meantime, Have a lovely day and Happy Quilting!!
- I'm just a new wife who has an obsession with my sewing machine! In Oct. 2010, my mother and I created my first sewing project - Euro pillow shams. I was hooked! I read everything I could get my hands on that had to do with sewing! Books, magazines, online tutorials. I experimented and found that I get so much enjoyment from making quilts, and that it's where I found my niche. I'm still a beginner, but I've learned so much in just 5 short months, that I want to share it with someone!
