Hope this finds you doing well and warm. :)
Warm, is what I have wanted all day. I have been chilled all day and at this moment I have a space heater blowing toward me. I'm still trying to warm up.
Last night, I saw more batting, than I ever have, in one place. At the guild meeting, last night, we cut 75 yards of batting. The batting was 96" wide. We cut it lengthwise into 48" widths, then cut it down into 50" lengths, so that we ended up with 48"X50" pieces. The batting was cut this way for guild members to take and use for love and lap quilts.
I brought home three pieces, to begin with. I'm planning on making two lap quilts and a love quilt with these three pieces. The lap quilts will go to a local nursing home and the love quilts go to a local child development service.
Another goal I have this year, is to get back to donating blankets to Project Linus. I have done so in the past, but got away from it, in the past few years.
