I mentioned a week or so about sending quilts to Alycia for QOV but somewhere along the way, one of the quilts got lost in the move. I found it yesterday so the QOV quilts will be sent to Alycia on Wednesday. I forgot to bring boxes home with me yesterday so I’ll bring them today. Others have been sent or will be sent Wednesday.
When I heard last week that my friend from school had lost her home and everything they owned in a fire, I sent her this one:
I talked to her yesterday and she told me she had a quilt but she lost it in the fire. I think she said it was a wedding gift and goodness . . they must have gotten married in 1972 or 1973 . . right out of high school. I hope she loves her new quilt as much as she loved her old quilt.
Sunday I heard about an opportunity to send quilts to a children’s home. A local quilter in AL had been asked to provide quilts before Christmas and could not get them made alone so he asked for help and a friend who knows him sent the request along to me and I agreed to send two. It’s not easy finding quilts around here right now . . so many of my quilts still go with trunk shows or they’re too big to give to a child but I’m sending this one:
And I’m sending this one:
I hope these two quilts help a child feel loved and appreciated and keep them a bit warmer this Christmas.
