With the season of comfort and joy upon us,
it's time to think about others.
Island Batik did just that, and asked the ambassadors to join in.
Yesterday I dropped a package of Kennel Quilts in the mail to the Tennessee Valley Humane Society.
With the devastating fires in the area recently, there has been a need for comfort quilts for displaced pets.
Our "Flying Quilters" quilt club has found that stitching these up, is a great way to share the day, and do some fun stash busting.
"TQPM Small Kennel Quilt Team" is a volunteer organization that is available when disasters strike. It is a way to join a larger effort to help our animal friends in times of need by doing what we love.

This runner was among some of the things that were donated to the
"Elks Lodge" this year.
They were raffled off to support the Little Britches Rodeo, here in our community. I feel it's important to support things that keep kids off the street and out of trouble.
This "quiltie"was donated to the "Future Farmers of America"
group and auctioned off, to support their young people projects.
You might even remember these from earlier this year.
Our group stitched up 200 of these tissue holders
for a little Valentines surprise, on the Meals on Wheels dinner plates.
There are so many ways we can share our love of stitching.
I do hope you find it in your heart to bring a little
sunshine into some one's day!
Have a blessed Holiday Season.
Until next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
Those are all wonderful ways of sharing your stitching with others.ReplyDelete
I was getting so busy being busy that I let sewing for charity slip. I REALLY missed it. This week I'm back to finishing a stack of totes and quilts for the local children's shelter.Sharing "Fabric Hugs" make me happy:)ReplyDelete

After reading this post I signed upt to be on the TQPM Small Kennel Quilt Team. Thanks I think. I am such a sucker for an animal in need. And Lord knows I have the stash to be of assistance. Great post.ReplyDelete
