New Beginnings kit

 My "New Beginning's" kit is finished and ready to mail to Australia for one of those quilters who lost everything in the floods. I had enough of not being able to sew myself, so I spent the day moving things around to make room in my studio to get to my machine, and thankfully last night, I was able to work on this project. I have been lamenting over not having my room to sew in, but thinking of those who don't have a home at all now, makes my plight seem pretty insignificant.  I am happy to have heard from some of my Aussie friends that they are ok, but I continue to keep the others in my thoughts and prayers.

I found this great pattern in my Art to Heart "Sew Necessary" book. It seemed to be just what was needed to give someone a fresh start. Won't you please join in and help a fellow quilter in need? Visit the Gum Tree Designers, and lend a hand.


  1. Great tragety for those in QSLD Austraia. Great idea to sew for them.

  2. I've been looking through patterns today for this, next stop, some fabric

  3. Joan, thank you SOOOO much!!! This will bless someone with a 'new beginning' in their loved hobby!!

  4. Can I call you Moose Angel for a while! It's lovely and you are wonderful!!!

  5. I love you Moose quilt and logo.
    You are such a good person for making a gift for a quilter in Australia.
    It is sad to see the terrible condition in that country.
    I am very glad to know you.
    Take care.

  6. What a wonderful caddy to send to someone in Australia...they will feel very touched and loved at this difficult time. You are inspiring me to do more than just donate $$.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  7. What a thoughtful gift for a quilter -- someone is going to be very grateful to you for doing this.
