The true spirit

So, remember these churn dash blocks I made a little while back for Audrey

Here they are set in a beautiful quilt to be donated to tornado victims.

And here is the label; I absolutely love it.

I am so grateful to have had a chance to participate in making this quilt happen.  If I have a generous spirit or a commitment to service it's because of my mom, Kimberly.  She recent finished this quilt in conjunction with do.good stitches and it has been donated to a 4 year old boy in foster care in our rural county in WNY.

And on a non-quilting rated note: the Drs' office I work at donated $150 in gift cards for groceries and several toys to a local family in need who had made their Christmas tree out of paper as they couldn't afford to buy one.  The little girl is 3 and her brother is 12.

I strongly urge you, if you are able to this season, to drop some cans off at the food pantry, donate an old coat to the Salvation Army, or pop a Barbie in a toy drive box.  It will make you happier than opening your own presents, truly.

I hope your holidays are full of joy, light, laughter and love.

See you in a few days to reveal the neat stuff we've made and had to keep secret the last few weeks!
