    I had 3 boxes of completed baby projects I was going to donate to my local favorite charity when they closed down their chapter. The boxes have been sitting in my spare room patiently waiting for another good home. Lilrain posted that she was looking for UFO's for her favorite charity, she lives in Vancouver WA and we were headed that way from CA so we agreed to meet up and I gave her my boxes. The charity is Babies in Need, I'm so happy my projects found a good home and I got to meet Lilrain aka Lorraine too! It was a Win Win.

    I was so excited about this lovely donation I tried to deliver it yesterday and found out they are not open Fridays. It will be delivered on Monday morning. My friend, who does the BabiesinNeed.org website, saw these wonderful things and was excited that this very worthy group will be the recipient. Ladies and gentleman, let me tell you, they are absolutely the nicest new fleece blankets, nice burpcloths, and bibs.
    There are about 30 babies a month born here in Vancouver that really need help from this group. The group provides a layette, sibling bags, and a new carseat if needed. they take no chances with used carseats.
    One of my quilt groups had a baby shower a couple of years ago with all items and cash going to Babies in Need.
    thank you again LaLaLand

    Now that is a cool picture. Hopefully we can all meet someone from here. I've found a few friends. Hope to meet one soon. You just never know where you will find a friend.

    Hey Leslie (lalaland) you are looking great and isn't this just like you!! We had a QB member get together last Friday. Missed you and wish you could have been here like in April. We were a larger group this time and we met in Fredericksburg, TX. There is a post of us all at lunch. Two other ladies from FBG stayed at the LQS where we all met and continued to sew but it was nice meeting them as well. Let us know when you are coming back to Austin!

    Here is the link to our Fredericksburg get together.
