It's been good to get back to the sewing machine and get more QAYG quilts finished as the need seems to be ongoing in many communities. These bright and cheerful quilts may be the one bright part of the Christmas celebrations and I'm getting as many finished as possible in case they are needed as Christmas gifts for the needy.
I'm also working on making some soft toys and hope to have some finished to show soon. The spring weather is beautiful at the moment and it feels like summer is on its way again so I'm going to finish some donated tops tomorrow before it gets too hot to work the sewing machine all day.
Before we know it Christmas will be here so if you have some time and some yarn or fabric scraps perhaps you'd like to make a soft toy or a mini Christmas stocking to donate for the needy. I have the instructions on my other blog at Sew Many Quilts Too Little Time.
Even just one would bring a smile to someone's face at Christmas. The mini stockings will be filled with lollies for the needy and will most likely be the only gift they will receive.
Many thanks, Jan Mac
