    My daughter introduceded your blog to me while we were having a vacation in the mtns of NC. Guess what, we were up there for two weeks , she finished three projects our friend finished quilting a quilt for her mother for Christmas (turning twenty) and I took three bags of scraps with me and made over 60 pads, blankets, an quilts for the local SPCA. What a rewarding way to use up all my quilts knowing that some little puppy or kitty will have a nice blanket to sleep on this winter.
    I still have some fabric scraps left , but hope I can do a few more.
    hope to hear from anyone that has similar projects to use their scraps.

    Hello from Ohio!

    I do a lot of quilts for the women shelter and their children.

    They are always appreciated and welcomed. It's so rewarding to see their happy faces. Many tears are flowing too, mine included.

    I am always open to visiting and meeting new friends, anytime just send me a chat note. Love to hear from you and news of what your projects are for the holidays. I am still finishing up my blankets for the SPCA , I have been practicing my quitling skills on these blankets hoping to improve enough to quilt on a quilt that I have finished except for that part. I am practicing leaves, they seemed to be the most easy for a beginner like me. Of course I see many designs I want to do, so will try them all. I think it is all in getting your speed when doing this

    I love the picture of your dog, I am sure she is your companion in the sewing room like my little fellow is, I also have a cat that likes to get on what ever I am sewing at the time, (hard to move the material along with him sitting on it) . Haven't started any christmas projects yet, well, take that back , am making a "orange peel" quilt for a friend. It will be a lap size. I love this pattern as you do everything at one time, no having to go back and than quilt.

    yes, we all did, it was a nice time and I am so pleased at what I accomplished this year for the SPCA. I try to do something every year for them, as I could never go out there and work. It would be so hard to be with all those animals and not see them get a good home to go to. If people could just realize the love one of these little fellows can give, it is so unconditional.
    Have you started any Christmas projects yet? I only have one in the making so far, and hope to finish it in a couple weeks.
