Valentine's is coming, how about we share the love?
I have noticed a lot of new bloggers commenting and visiting me. I would like to say a big "hello" and welcome. I have tried to call at your blogs, but if you don't make yourself known it is tricky.
Some of you may have wondered about the Quilts for Leukeumia message in my sidebar.
Clare, in the Dorgogne (France) instigated this fabulous project where quilters send her 8 1/2 inch red and white blocks from around the world. She then makes them into red and white sampler type quilts and distributes them amongst leukeumia sufferers who have been bought to her attention. If you follow the link above you will see her latest.
After commenting on the work she does she replied that she was down to her last 3 blocks. I am going to get more over to her and my quilt group may contibute some at our next Quilters but I know that all of you out there would love to help others so I thought we may have an old fashioned Australian 'Pass the hat around' and see if we can't get a heap over to France-it is the season for sharing the love after all.
Most of us could probably whip up an 8 1/2 inch block in our sleep, so while you are watching the cricket this afternoon or watching or hiding from Super bowl Sunday in the US, how about a block? Australian girls may like to just pop their's in an envelope to me and I can send a bulk amount to Clare, others may organise direct with Clare.
So, are you in? Let's see how many of you sign up through my comments between now and Valentines...and you never know, some lucky block maker may be thanked in an even more tangible way than just the joy you help bring to another human being.
I have started playing (above), just make sure your red is washed until no more red will come out in the water.
Finishing with some farm shots. DH was heading the barley in just the light I like. I have wanted some cards suitable for the men in my world so actually sacrificed 30 minutes of live action 20/20 cricket to grab these shots.-the things we do!
Who ever said ducks were stupid?
Have a great day, and don't forget to put in the comments if you can contribute a block, Tracey
