    Think I may try this. Surely, I can do a small quilt in 5+ weeks.

    Actually, I have never made a mini, and quite frankly, I have not made many full sized one's either. I prefer wall hangings, baby quilts, etc. LOL. I just thought the smaller the faster.. NO - not really?? I wanted to make one for the Alzheimer's organization - just thought if I was doing that, what's the problem with doing a second!! Apparently this is more time consuming that I thought (and I DO work FT, also). And I have been commissioned to crochet 2 afghans by mid-October, as well. I go to bed about midnight and am up by 5:30 or 6:00. Hmmm. Maybe my really bad habit of overachieving is getting me in too deep again. I always want to bite off more than I can chew. Now I'm hoping I can do at least one. Are you on the RAK list? You may be surprised someday, if you are.

    RAK means random acts of kindness.

    Quilty Louise has been keeping addresses she receives and sending things to people who may need a lift.
    Over time she has been asked to add people's names to her list.

    So if you are interested in adding your name to her list here is her link - you can send your address in a pm

    nancia The entry date goes until Oct 10 so you could still make one between the 2nd and the 10th if you want to. It's up to you tho.

    Can it be a bit of a mini art quilt?
