A Change in Direction
I want to say a very heartfelt thank you to everyone for their support and donations for the needy and those affected by floods and bushfires. We have managed to bring comfort and warmth to many in need. I do encourage you to continue to make and donate as you see fit, and there are many organizations which help in our communities.
Janice of Needy Stitches in Melbourne (firstname.lastname@example.org) supports many different organizations which help the needy in Melbourne and country Victoria. She is able to accept finished quilts, knitted items as well as crocheted or knitted blanket squares. I have been sending quilts to her as well and she passes them on to many different organizations. She is unable to accept fabric or unfinished quilts and tops though.
I need to take time for me as well as more time for the family and I hope you all understand that this wasn't any easy decision to make.
Today I finished my hexagon top and I'm still pondering what quilting design to use. I have also been hand appliqueing stars to a cream background. These stars were donated and the finished stars are now stitched to the background but there are still some more stars to construct from the donated pieces. I'm using this as a handy take-along project when I need some hand stitching to work on.
I will post some more finishes very soon, or at least show some progress on them.
Hugs, Jan Mac
