Although the year isn't quite over, I'm doing a 2011 wrap up of sorts. I'm getting ready to close a chapter in the quilting-for-charity category - just until after the first of the year, that is.
In looking back at 2011, I've done more sewing this year than all the other years of my life combined. Here's a recap of the non-charity project days:
- Days 1 and 195: Pincushions
- Day 8: Fabric Memory Game
- Day 14: Camera bag
- Day 20: T-shirt grocery bags
- Day 29: Clothespin bag
- Day 34: Potholders
- Day 35: Makeup bag for my daughter
- Days 38 and 188 : Breadbasket liners
- Days 41 and 153: Fabric covered buttons and magnets
- Day 167: Pocket tissue holder
- Day 244: Gift card holder
- Day 251: Fabric covered clipboard
- Day 258: Drawstring bags
- Christmas Tree ornaments on Days 272, 276, 279
- Day 265 : Fabric covered bookmarks
- Day 287: Fabric covered bulletin board
But here is the most important list of all. The list of items I've made for charity.
- Day 3: Flag quilt top
- Day 11: Baby quilt for Calling All Angels
- Day 17: Presentation Cases for Quilts of Valor
- Day 27: more Presentation Cases for Quilts of Valor
- Quilts for the Quilts for Kids organization on Days 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 101, 107, 120, 121, 122, 164, 176, 179, 236, 238, 243
- Day 234: Baby quilt top
- Day 86: Spinning Star quilt top
- Turtle Pillows for the Painted Turtle Hole-in-the Wall Camp on Days 132, 144, 150, 152, 154
- Stockings for Soldiers on Days 214, 215, 219, 221, 222, 237
- Pillows for Operation Kid Comfort on Days 233, 277
- Quilts for Operation Kid Comfort on Days 196, 198, 203, 245, 246, 253, 254, 280, and today.
Today I can add two more quilts to the Operation Kid Comfort quilt list. Here on Day 290 another two quilts are finished and ready to head out the door. Being that a couple of my pictures (including today's) have more than one quilt in the picture, I think that makes 30+ kids quilts for charity this year.
Here's today's picture, but keep looking. I have all my charity work pictures for 2011 compiled together right below.
I always hear about how one person can make a difference. I hope I'm getting close to being one of those "ones".
