What's Cookin' at The Sweatshop, Week #12

Hi, all!

Wednesday rolls around again, so it's time for another update on The Sweatshop!  Things are starting to heat up around here again...

This pretty quilt, pieced by my lovely friend Kathy, has found a home with a young woman who has had several brain surgeries and is having some difficult complications from that....

...and this beautiful quilt, pieced by Emilie, is headed to a lady suffering from cancer in Florida...

...this lovely little baby quilt, made by Cindy, is going to a family suffering from financial hardship in our local area for their upcoming baby...

...and this cheerful quilt, which was pieced and donated by Deb A., is going to a woman in our local area who had a heart attack and has had multiple complications since then.

I thought I'd show you some detail - I love to quilt in words of hope when I'm doing my FMQ....

We've got quilts in the works right now for a local coach, a child with Crohn's disease, a woman who just lost her husband, and the two quilts needed for our next prayer service.  Whew!  It's staying busy - - - and sweaty! at the Sweatshop!!   Hopefully those will be finished to appear on next week's update.....

So that's our update for the week!  Many thanks to all the hands that contributed to this week's quilts, both local and those of you out in blogland!!
