Working Wednesday - Taking a Little Hiatus...

Hi, all!

Here it is, Wednesday again --- andI have been working so hard on the Hands2Help Challenge setup for this year that I haven't had a chance to work at all on the book.  So I think until I get all this preliminary work done, the book will have to take a backseat!  

Challenges are fun, but a whole lot of work to organize!  Last week I finally got the button finished…


…and managed to finally get the code attached to it so you can put it on your own blog!  You can pick it up in the right side bar if you want to add it to your blog - and I'd appreciate it immensely!






I've finally worked out the schedule for this year's challenge, and am working on updating the Page with all the new info.  



I'm also working on contacting last year's sponsors, and locating new ones!



And I had the most amazing conversation today with the woman who runs one of this year's charities!  In listening to her talk about her journey, I heard so many similarities to our church's quilt ministry.  It actually kind of freaked me out, because her ministry is so much larger than ours - but then I remembered that she has been doing this for fifteen years now and we've only been doing it for four years.  God will give us the resources and workers we need as we need them - but I can look at her ministry and see where we could be in ten or twelve years.  It's pretty amazing! I can't wait to tell you more about her charity, and the others we'll be quilting for this year.  Soon!!

So - - - because there are only 24 hours in a day and I haven't found a way to clone myself yet, a short hiatus from thinking and working on the book is in order.  Watch for more on the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge very soon!!

Hugs!

Sarah

  1. I want to be a sponsor, what kind of prize do you want? I'm a long arm quilter so could offer to quilt something or could give away a gift certificate to a fabric shop. Just let me know what you prefer.

  4. Sarah, I added the button to my blog, but does it just link back to your blog now? I had to google how to add it and don't know what URL to put in but yours.

  11. That first quilt picture after the Hands2Help button looks like it could be the poster quilt for the challenge. It has the same colors as the button!
