Operation Kid Comfort is starting back up!! We had a informal get together on Sunday at Cornerstone with the fabulous Dawn, Miss Metta, and myself. The three of us went through loads of donated fabric (mostly from the Northwind Quilt guild members) to put together kits for our March event.
The idea was to pair up fabrics and cut out kits for us to use when we receive our picture packets. I did this with my sister last time and it was a big job so having an extra person helping was nice.
By the end of the day we had 15 kits cut! Which is good because we are receiving pictures for 10 kids!!
I just have to sew some strips and we are ready for March 25. That is when our next Operation Kid Comfort event will be at Cornerstone Quilt Shoppe in Fairfield, Ca. If your are in the area, stop on by and help us make quilts for the children of deployed service members!!
I will leave you with this, I made a big step. I threw away fabric…GASP!!! Last year, when I wasn’t buying fabric, I accumulated a lot of people’s stash that they did not want. Some of it was nice, some of it was awesomely bad, and some was just bad. I went through the pile to donate some and then picked out the fabric that I believe had no business being made. Country cute in peach….gone. Black and mauve combo…gone! Teddy bears that unintentionally look like zombie bears (*shiver*) ….gone. It feels good to move on…and my husband will appreciate not having these boxes around the house;)
