It’s been a long while since our last Quilt-Cam opportunity.
Before I left for Florida we fit one in….and on that 2 week trip I got sick, with no voice!
Do you know I am just NOW feeling back to normal?? Whatever it was laid me flat for 3 weeks, so take care of yourself and if you even THINK you are coming down with an ear infection or sinus infection or bronchitis – don’t be brave and put it off! It’s a nasty bugger this year.
I want to start out this evening by introducing you to a special lady, Sherri!
In December she sent in an email during Quilt-Cam and she told us about her quilt mission.
She emailed today with photos to share with you. She writes:
You read my email during quiltcam in early December as I worked on lap robes for wheelchair patients that we served on our trip to the Middle East.
We made it home safe & sound and were so blessed to work with our partners there.
Here are a couple of pics from the trip. One is of Adam* with his new wheelchair & quilt. He had a crush on one of our physical therapists
The other is of my new friend and quilting buddy, Rita*.
Even without a translator, I could show her what I was doing and she caught on quickly. She had quite a stack of 4 patches by the end of the week.
Have loved following you on your many journeys. How wonderful to share the beauty of quilts that bridge all cultures &people.
Blessings!It IS wonderful to see how quilts, caring and comfort can bring us together.

Thank you, Sherri for sharing the photos and story with us. I am sure good positive things like this will continue through the many efforts of others also engaged in such quilty endeavors!
On the home front:
I should never be left alone with an Ebay App.
Yeah. I bought this.
BIG GIANT H BLOCKS!
I mean, PINK & CHEDDAR!?
It had my name on it!
And look at that hand quilting!
I’m guilty as H…… Hahaha!
So, tonight I’ll be working on these:
I sewed all of these in Oklahoma --
They are just waiting for squaring up.
You’ll find me HERE tonight making more!
I’m sewing on a 1950s Singer 404. I sewed on this last time as well, and I was too lazy to swap out machines today – ran out of time is more like the story!
