Swap & Social Responsibility

Sew, Mama, Sew is hosting a FQ swap. Check it out. It's a great way to liven up your stash and share a few favorite FQs you have w/ another quilter.

Tia at Camp Follower Bags has organized a quilting effort for those hit by the wildfires in Australia. All you need to do is follow a simple tutorial found on the flickr site for a 12.5" block - use up those scraps! Come on, get involved. How long will it take you to sew 1 block? 30 minutes? Don't feel like sewing? Ok, do you have some backing sized fabric you really don't want anymore? Send it along. What's that you say? You'd rather throw money at the problem? Hey, that will work too. Send along a gift certificate to an online fabric shop (post your intentions on the flickr site and I am sure you'll get some input/direction). Isn't the cause worth the effort of going to the post office and mailing the envelope/package? Wouldn't you want someone to make the same effort for you if you lost everything in a fire? Yea, I thought you would! Now, get sewing!

2 days!!!! It will be 2 days since I've done any sewing. Life and philanthropic endeavors are cutting in to my sewing time. Last night was a Junior League meeting and tonight is another Junior League meeting. Don't feel too sorry for me....tonight's meeting is all about wine paring. You know what that means, right? Wine, food and socializing!

Just One More...day on the Special K diet (essentially cereal for bfast and lunch w/ fruit snacks and then a healthy dinner), bill paid (thank god we don't have a Nordstrom's near us), set of push ups this morning, smile for a stranger.

  1. I just came for a look and I can understand why you are not happy about the no sewing for a couple of days, it always puts me in a different kind of mood! Hey, you have some great projects featured. As I am here in OZ I would like to express my thanks for all your efforts for those who have lost everything in the recent bushfires.
