I love the opportunities that this blogging community offers us to help and care for others.
A friend of mine, Karen (Listen to the Birds Sing) is a very talented patchworker, who is going to Thailand in November. Karen is appealing for block donations for patchworked bed covers she is bringing out for the child victims of sex trafficking. Have a look at her original post here, launching her charity bee Kind Stitches.
These wee blocks are super quick and easy to make (only 6.5″). Why not rustle up a few for Karen, and have a look at what others have made in the flickr group.
Here’s a few I’ve made:
Today I was on the receiving end of this blogging community goodness.
Thank you to Leanne for these fab wonky star blocks for Bee Blessed, all the way from Canada, and the adorable coasters for me and Sarah!
|I saw these on Leanne’s blog when she made them and drooled over them!|
Folks from my church are amazed when I tell them that Bee Blessed is supported by blogger friends from all around the world!
Finally, photographic evidence that I have been working on my Across the Sea QAL back.
|I really don’t want to apologise for the sun shining in, but it doesn’t make for a great pic!|
One of these days I’m going to reveal to you all the other delights I’ve been making and squirrelling away, but I think I’ll hold off a little longer!
