I know the news has been about the 10th Anniversary of Katrina, but today (Friday) was the 4th anniversary of Storm Irene for our area. So I had the need to gently reflect on that event and it's impact on our Valley and communities. I like the word 'rebuild' over 'recover' as you never recover from these things.
I had only been quilting a couple of years, but joined in with the LQS and our quild in making a number of quilts as well as helping in quilting and binding off quilts that were donated. I, also, personally traveled to deliver some of those quilts.
So I found solace in my 'fun' tote of hoarded kitty fabrics (yes, there are a few doggies in there). A good day to return to some gifted quilts.
Some doll quilts for the Mrs Claus Project. I have some others already made earlier in the year and I will add these to them and get them all mailed off on Monday.
They don't take a lot of fabric, quick to quilt (or tie) up, use up your batt scraps and bindings. Knowing they will make some little girl's Christmas a little brighter was just the thing that I needed today.
