The 5 completed Bee Blessed quilts were handed over today, for donation to needy local families. These were 4 cot quilts and a single bed size D9P quilt all made by wonderful virtual and blogging friends!
My prayer is that as these quilts are received into homes, with them comes the blessing of comfort and peace, especially at this time of year.
I often forget that Christmas is not always a season of joy and pleasure for some, and in fact can be one of the most difficult events in their year. I hope that the time, effort and talent invested in each of these quilts will be translated into a 'spoonful of sugar' in an otherwise sorrowful & difficult time.
In the post today I received something most unusual!
This is a needle book case made (& subsequently hated!) by the lovely Rhonda. This poor wee case is now destined for a life of pilgrimage as it travels around the world, blogger to blogger .....
(am I making you cry yet?!)
Okay, cut the violins! This is really just a bit of fun, and the lovely Susan passed Ugly Needle Case (UNC) to me (with a few little treats - thanks chick!).
I now have the onerous position of deciding who to pass UNC onto next (not before I give it a wee stroke and try to raise it's self-esteem a little!).
Who will be next?
And before I get even more ridiculous (you can tell it's Friday!) just a few pics of this afternoon's quick makes for the 'Mummy I'm going to a birthday party tomorrow & I need a present!' request.
Pencil case & tissue pouch.
I'm reliably informed this cool chick is a Goth in the making but whose mum insists she still wears pink! Hope I got the balance right!
Have a wonderful end to your week, relax, put your feet up and watch mindless telly!
