My sweet friend Aleisha at Rambusch Designs needs your help. She's doing a beautiful thing for a precious little girl, named Abby Rose. Abby is in the hospital, and will probably be there through February; her medical bills are enormous, and Aleisha wants to help. She's auctioning a gorgeous rag quilt to help the family.
I know Aleisha and Abby and her family would appreciate your help!
I'll be back to regular crafty posting soon - I'm half a binding away from finishing our January give-away gift, and I want to take a picture of it to put on the blog. The batteries for my camera are apparently on THE slowest boat out of China. I have to tell you, I'm kind of bummed that I can't enter the give-away myself - I really like this one! How are you doing with your gifts? As soon as I finish this one, I'll be starting my Christmas gift.
If, like me, you're having trouble thinking so far ahead, how about some generic gifts? Maybe a pretty trash bag for someone's car, a remote control holder for an armchair, something quick for a sewing friend. Or an ornament - that way you wouldn't be tempted to give it early. Pajamas for children are ALWAYS welcome. Hooded towels for toddlers, or stuffed toys.
I'm looking at tutorials all over the net, and the ones that really catch my eye are the ones that I'm trying to match up with recipients on my gift list. I would very much like to LOVE what I'm making.
A few folks have already finished their gifts for our first month! I am very impressed, and can't wait for you to see them. I'm going to have an option for you to show them off. I'll do Mr. Linky, for those that don't mind showing the gifts on their blogs - but if you don't have a blog, or the person you're gifting reads your blog, you can email me your picture and I'll do a show and tell here on my blog. That way we won't blow your cover. *G*
Back soon. Please keep our precious friends in Australia in your prayers.
