    I am told she won't go to bed without her new blankie. I finished binding it somewhere near the Illinois/Missouri border, about a little over halfway through the drive to Joplin. This was one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. We had so many clothes & supplies in the trailer that we only got about 6mpg and had to stop A LOT for gas, but it was all worth it!

    Very cute quilt....is it for someone you know personally, or are you being kind to a stranger who has gone through a crisis? Either way, it is a very very cute quilt.

    The little girl who lost her lamb collection is the daughter of a friend of mine from high school. We were fortunate enough to have the time, energy and community support here in Hillsboro and his parents' town of Cambridge to take a trailer full of love to them this weekend. Very rewarding experience.

    How wonderful of you to do that. I love the quilt, and especially the fabric!! Is the house fabric from a panel? I would love to get a hold of some like it. I love sheep too :)
