Today is my Alzheimer Mother's Birthday, although she doesnt know it. I picked up her dirty laundry yesterday and will bring it back today, along with some presents of colors and coloring books and her clean clothes. So sad. She used to make beautiful clothing even though as a teenager I didn't appreciate them.
My design wall is so crowded with stuff I can't get to it so i have to have a "design corner". The leaves are a project for a Virtual Bee and the block is the mystery block from a quilt that was designed to be made for Charity puposes. We worked on the quilts Saturday at a Sew In. All the blocks in this one are made and I will create a top for someone to quilt.
We have 5 quilts going so far in various stages.
We were asked by the local Habitat For Humanity to create a Charity Quilt for them to auction at their Art For Houses Fair. This is an interesting auction. They give anyone interested a $50 gift Certificate to their ReSale Shop. You go and choose various building materials and create an art object or useful object from it. It then gets auctioned to raise money for building of houses for those who are working but unable to afford their own house. The money is also used for ZERO interest loans to those who have a steady employment history but cannot afford to purchase a home.
Anyway, we are excited and thinking about what our Auction Quilts will look like.
