There's A Lot of Giving Going On!

To those of you who headed over to Alissa's to give to Action Kivu, I can't thank you enough.
It's not too late to get some action on this bundle of Flea Market Fancy. The fundraiser on Alissa's blog is going well, but we're not there yet. Can you give up a yard of fabric this month and donate $10? Or would you like to get your hands on this wonderful bundle of joy? A $75 donation will get you in the draw. The money we raise beyond our $7,500 goal starts putting kids to school in the Congo. Alissa has raised the goal to $10,000. We can SO do this! If you thought about making a donation, go ahead and do it now.
What else is up around here?

I've been making quilt backs...so far I've got backs for these three finished. Quilt backs are one of my achilles heels (yes, I have more than one!). Sometimes when I've spent so much energy on the front, it's hard to tackle the back. But now there will be some quilting going on.
I received a bit of good news this week. My little home on the net was featured in Quilter's World magazine. Pretty cool. I like that she called me no-nonsense. I sure try to be. Inspirational...geez....a pretty nice shot in the arm during a tough week.

I love reading your blog, but when I read about you, I think, "Wow! What's my friend!" I know, it's a rather presumptuous thought since we haven't ever met, but the blog world brings people together. I just wish I could remember who "introduced" us. I'd like to thank her. Enjoy your moments of fame!

Cooless!! I can't wait to start quilting so I can't get the back made fast enough! Course my backs are all plain.

Sherry said...

Oh - big kudos to you - for both the quilt backs and the blog recognition. Thoe quilts look wonderful all pressed and hung.
Perhaps you can help me with my two in progress :)
