Tuesday Archives #10 - Cats & Charities

It's Tuesday again. A time to skip down memory lane with a post from the archives.   Today it's all about cats and charities.  I love cats but nothing to show for it.  LOL  So I'll share posts about my local charities.

This post from July 2011 is all about pillowcase dresses for Haiti.  I made a personal goal to make 50 dresses.  There was not enough pillowcases donated, so I used fabrics from stash.  Well, you have to use it somewhere...  It was a daunting job because of all that bias I had to make!


  The post is   HERE along with a
              picture of more dresses

I am also part of an annual school book bag project.  We make 450 bags every year for all 2nd graders in the county.  A quilter friend and I do most of the cutting and prep work of the straps ahead of time. Then we have a mission week at church with more helpers to sew them together.
Many hands make light work.
  HERE  is the mission project.  You'll even find a pic of DH at the ironing board - he was showing off amongst all the ladies.  I've not caught him with an iron since.  LOL 

Here I'll just share a few photos of quilts I've donated.  Most of them go to the children who are admitted to the local hospital. It is our Quilt Guild mission.  A few go for QOV.


I am blessed to have the opportunity to give my creations away to family, friends and charitable causes. It warms my heart.  I am linking up with Val's Quilting Studio where you can visit more quilters charing their cats and charity projects.

Thanks for stopping by.
