Today I mailed my first Soldiers' Angels care package to one of our Armed Forces heroes. I hope it finds him doing well and maybe lifts his spirits a little. I also mailed a box of cookies and brownies to another soldier.
I found a box with large, 16” blocks I had completely forgotten about, from an exchange I participated in years ago (whoops, I forgot to take pictures before I packed them). They are off to Texas for Debra to work her magic on them. I also came across some appliquéd basket blocks -- if anybody can make them look good, Debra can. They are at least ten years old. It’s such a good feeling to know these orphan blocks will be transformed in to a beautiful quilt for such a worthy cause.
Tomorrow I’m going to try & piece another top for Debra’s homeless teen quilt project. It’ll be simple, large blocks, maybe a nine patch; something I can put together quickly.
Take care, and have a productive weekend!
