Finding Shelly Sandy

I have to apologize to you, I cannot figure out how to contact you!  I don't' see anywhere in google plus to reply.

So, thinking like a detective, i went to Judy's Design Wall post and looked at ALL the  fabulous blogs posted there, got lost for a while, and still couldn't figure out which one was yours!

To answer your questions, I am in Louisiana, Baton Rouge to be exact.

This whole area has some really bad flooding.  In fact today they closed the I-10 at the Texas/LA border because the Sabine River was overflowing.  And more rain is expected.  Starting Thursday.

But I can contact The Giving Quilt.  They are a Non- Profit 501c3 quilt organization st up to be the clearinghouse between people donating quilts and the places who receive donated quilts.  They are Local right here in BR and they will know the churches that are generally the places who receive the donations and get them to people who need them.  We have guilds from Baytown, TX to MS involved with them.  So let me see who is doing what.

I have contacted Candy Bergeron to see what they have going right now on collecting quilts for flood victims.

And I have a guild meeting tonight with several of the members of The Giving  Quilt.  I will ask them as well.

In other news:  I am deciding between these two quilt to gift to Nancy across the street.  She and Greg let us park in their driveway while ours was being redone.  I am so glad to be back under my own underappreciated carport again!  


  1. Even though the decision is your's alone, I think the one on the left since it is home related. They are both beautiful.

  2. I'd be thrilled to receive either of those quilts. Well, if I didn't have 100 quilts already, but you know what I mean. Gotta love good neighbors!

    Thanks for the info on the Giving Quilt folks. I had no idea...and right here in my backyard. I'm going to dig out those quilts that I made two summers ago with the intent of donating and next time I'm in BR let someone else make the decisions of where the quilts go.

  3. Darn, I've been wanting to tell you that I love the new banner! That's a pretty quilt with the blue ribbon. :-)

  4. I met a 7 month old enormous Swissy yesterday. Had to keep Cole and that one apart, what a brute! So soft, so pretty and fresh and new. Cuckoo but cute. Hope your basement is dry

  5. I am sure the neighbor would be thrilled with either quilt! I don't remember seeing the blue ribbon winning quilt shown in your banner. I really like it!

    Hope the rain stops soon for the south. We look like we could get more - we had thunderstorms last night - but we are getting nothing like you are. At least ours is rain and not snow which it could be this time of year!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
