    I'm so excited to share my news

    I was asked just today to write a blog for our local thrift store's new website. I entered one of my recycled fabric quilts in a drawing contest they were holding, and was contacted and asked to write about how I make and donate comfort quilts and use recycled fabric from their store.
    After I did as requested, they contacted me again and asked if I would be interested in being a regular contributor.
    My excitement is so great because they pay for submissions with gift cards to the store. How awesome that I can share about quilting, recycling, etc. AND get free fabric to make more comfort quilts in the process!!!
    The site is not quite up and running but will be soon, and I have already submitted my first blog, because they want to use my story as the first entry!!!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    How cool is that!! You could showcase a quilt made from jeans and plaid shirts that came from the thrift store. Or a tie quilt using ties donated to the thrift store. Or a string quilt made from cotton shirts and blouses.

    Yes, isn't it a great chance to share so many of the neat things we do? Don't want to forget the denim bags and t-shirt quilts, either.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
