Doing something for others…..

 

For many years I had been heavily involved with the Charity Bee in our local guild.  This group of 10-15 ladies meets weekly to create quilts for the local battered women’s shelter, the Prevent Child Abuse organization, local senior citizen groups and others who are so much in need.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to be involved much in the last 18 months, so last week I happily rejoined the group.  There was much laughing, sewing and even a bit of singing!!!  

I found some fun bug fabric in amongst our stash and started cutting out a small quilt which I just finished up……

It will be returned to the group and one of the women will use their long-arm machine to quilt it, someone else will bind it and it will wing it’s way to a happy owner.

It feels good to be giving something back……..

This is a lovely idea for a little quilt. Great way to share the work load, too.

A lovely, and worthwhile way to spend a day. Nice result too.
