    So much fun

    I really am having so much fun and also stretching myslef to try new things. I have quilted for 25 years. The last few years I have concentrated on making quilts for others in need. Whether it be a true need for warmth of a quilt, a baby who does not have a blanket, someone who is suffering (whether from health problems of their own or a loss of someone else), it seems to be my calling.
    I have twice posted on this board with offers to purchase of trade for orphan blocks, UFO's etc. I have been working and having so much fun with them.
    Some years back, I never would have been able to predict that this is what I would end up loving to do.
    When we had the board change over to this new format, I had to delete my private messages. So I have pretty much lost contact with the majority of people I received from. I believe I still owe someone some fabric. If it is you, please, please let me know. I want to send you what I owe.

    I am with you Lilrain, I love to give away quilts, my friends call me the queen of scrap quilts vbg but if I can sew these scraps together, give them away and brighten someones day, so be it.
    Friends give me scraps I love to sort them, tidy them up,iron them and then put them into there piles, like tone on tone I spy, small flowers etc

    I tried crochet and ceramics before quilting. gave up both of them when I started quilting. And , yes, "brightening someone's day" is a whole lot of it for me. i just want to make a difference, even if it is ever so small, in someone else's life

    What an inspiration and Blessing you ladies are....I think that my New Year's Resolution will be to make (at least) one item per month for one of my local charities. Thank you for what you do for those in your communities.
    Happiness is a form of travel...not a destination.

    Yes blessings to those who make for the ones in need. I have good intentions to make some for our local shelters but I never seem to be able to follow thru with as many as I would like to. May make this my resolution for the coming year...

    You don't have to make anything big. The shelters love to get pillow cases. I have a friend who was able to purchase pillows at wholesale and then she and friends made a pillow case for each one. they gave them all to local shelters so each person there could have their own pillow and pillow case.
