My Contribution


Posted on October 20th, by Amy in Charity. 11 comments

Last week I shared an opportunity to sew up baby blankets for baby’s without.  Over the weekend, I pulled out fabrics that had been given to me or purchased, but never used.  I ended up with 15 blankets complete on Sunday afternoon!

gifts of loveI spent a few hours ironing, then cutting, then sewing everything together, thankfully Ella likes to help iron, and sew!

There’s still time to help out with Amy’s project, if you would like to sew up blankets or send some fabric for blankets.  Check out her blog for more details and regular updates.

How’s your challenge project going?  I cut my Sweet Divinity quilt top yesterday…I’m excited to sew it up!

Blessings~

Amy

    Good for you. I’ve had the flannel out for months. Here’s hoping your example is the kick start I needed. Take care.
