Donations.......

Over the years I've finished off many quilts that I have just stockpiled into totes and not actually used.   Some of them I've planned to sell in order to help pay off some of the bills or just to get money for fun stuff.........but haven't found a good place to do so yet.   There is a possibility of an outlet for this but whether it will come to fruition or not is yet to be seen.

In the last few weeks there have been a couple of calls for donations of assorted types of items from different ministries and charities.  

One of these was for an autumn  fundraiser for The Cat House on the Kings - a no kill cat shelter.     To them I will be sending a little quilted wallhanging of a "sunbonnet kitty".   I made this from a swap block many years ago and even hand-quilted it (rare for me to do that!).

The two table runners at the top of the picture will be going to the group that has been collecting stuff for the survivors of the Texas Christmas tornado.   At the present they are collecting holiday decor for them as they are starting to return to rebuilt homes.   The donations will help people start to decorate for the holidays that are coming.

The pumpkins were made from blocks I received in a swap many yrs ago, the Noel runner was made from a remnant I found at Joann's many years ago as well.   I do hope that someone likes them.

Gratitudes:
1. Loving my job here in Tx!

2. Fall weather is coming.  =)

I do like that these are getting to come out of the closet and boxes and be used for something, as they were meant to be! Cute cat!
