We've had a very busy week at the sweatshop! Only a couple of quilts have gone out, but there's a reason for that.... Here are the two quilts we've finished this week.
Both of these beautiful tops were donated to us by Verda, a new friend I met through Brita, who brought a group of her friends on a FART (Fabric Acquisition Road Trip) to my neck of the woods. The top quilt is going to a woman in Canada with leukemia, and the bottom quilt is going to a woman here locally who is dealing with a rare blood disorder; she is undergoing chemotherapy to help her with the symptoms of her disease.
(Just a side note - my husband has pointed out that with the quilt that is going to Canada, our ministry has now gone completely international - we've received donations from other countries, but this is the first time that we've sent a quilt internationally, I think!)
And here are some pictures that show the reason for our low output this week...
|Summer Camp begins!!|
|Working on her quilt|
|Learning how to pin properly...|
|First time using a sewing machine!|
Plus there's been a good bit of this going on...
|The little princess holding court....|
....which someone finds to be totally exhausting!!
|This quilting business is hard work!|
But we can't forget about the first little princess....
|Isn't she growing up fast?|
So that's what we've been working on here at The Sweatshop! I'll have pictures of the thirteen completed quilt tops from camp next week - be sure to check back! The girls have worked so hard and done a great job on their quilt tops!
Oh - and don't forget, there's still time to enter in the giveway!! Go to this post for the details - winner will be announced on Friday! (And by the way, I'm trying to get to 700 followers - only five more to go - and then another giveaway!!)
