Today was great! Some of the members of our guild got together to specifically work on Charity Projects. We usually work independently to get our projects done, but it sure was fun to work together.
We made touchy-feely quilts for the blind, autistic, and those with Alzheimer's.
We made some pillowcases and bags for our Hospice House. The pillowcases seem to cheer up the rooms a little, and they use the bags to put coloring books and crayons in for children who are visiting.
We also got a head start on our Relay for Life quilts for next year.
There are various other charity projects that we do throughout the year, like making pillow cases and Christmas stockings for the troops. What a wonderful way to give back.
I am enjoying the enthusiasm our members have for helping others.
A bonus: I learned how to do a proper French Seam today!
