Quilt for 1st Responders of Aurora, CO

Here is the quilt I made for the 1st Responders and families affected by the shootings in Aurora, CO.  My blogging friend Jean, put out a call to all quilters to make a quilt for a very worthy cause!! She is aiming to get 300 quilts. I am hoping she gets that amount and more!! Stitch to it ladies!! I am shipping this out tomorrow!!

Ruth received her package!!!

So Ruth contacted me this morning, and the good news is...She loves her apron and all the goodies I sent her!! Yeah Rah!! I love to hear my swap sisters are happy!! It just makes me so glad. Just keep an eye out, cause I may just pop in for a visit to retreive that hat I sent you...LOL!! I really wanted to keep it!!

So Megs got that cat toy after all!! You know dogs are so smart. Ya just have to love them!! Rocco loves the Turkey that was suppose to go to Megs. Not much left of him at all. Not sure I would know what kind of animal it was, if I hadn't bought it.

Tonight I am going to a play with some friends " Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" Should be very entertaining!! I haven't been out for an evening in a very long time. After the show we are going to Baker's Square for a piece of pie!! Cherry with vanilla ice cream will be my pick!

On another subject...I am going to try my hand at a quilting project to send to the 1st Responders of the Aurora, CO shootings that took place earlier this month. I am not a quilter, but I can give it a try for such a worthy cause. My friend Jean from Washington state has asked all of her quilting friends to reach deep into their hearts and pull out a quilt to send. I am going to have to get the address, and when I do, I will post it!!

July 25th, 2012

I am really hoping Ruth will receive her package today!! Even though I shipped 2 day priority, USPS doesn't always do their job. I am sure I would have lost my job if I had not done that job in a timely manner!! Ruth has already waited long enough, and the rest of the swap sisters are waiting patiently to see what her apron will look like!!

Today I have to finish the jacket tux I am making for my husband. He has been after me for months/years...not a lie, to finish it! The trouble is, he is very hard to fit and I get frustrated and just tuck it away so I don't have to look at it!! Today is the day...just get it done. Wish me luck....I will let you all know how it goes!!

Quilting Ranny is asking for donated quilts to send to Aurora, Co. This is just a wonderful, thoughtful thing to do.  As I wish I was a quilter by trade, the few quilts I have made have taken me a long time to create. It would take me months I believe to send something completed. This is however a very worthy cause.
God Bless the residents and first responders in Aurora, CO and God Bless the USA.

Back to sewing!!

So last Wednesday I got back from my 5th visit this year, to Ohio to help my Mother unpack from her Last move!! Boxes filled her second bedroom...what can I say, she never throws anything away, and we just keep packing and unpacking for her!! Maybe my sisters and I are the problem!! Anyway, I finished all the unpacking that needed to be done.

I checked my e-mail and low and behold, there was a message from Shawnee!!! Hi Shawnee!! So she asked me if I would "Angel" for someone in our current swap, and you know I can't say no!! Just not in my vocabulary. I did post a picture on the Apronista website, just a peek!! But here I will show what I made!!
I think the apron turned out great!! Definitely one I would like to keep!! The next picture is a quick shot of the other tuck-ins!! I got a little carried away!! You know I have to spoil my new friend!! There is nail polish, Cherry Jelly Bellies,2 mini fry pans in pink and green, a purple spatula, candy buttons and a cat toy! I did buy a dog toy, but I wasn't careful where I put down my shopping bag, and my Boxer Rocco got a hold of the toy and mauled it to death. So sorry Megs...Pink yarn and a circular Knitting needle.

This hat was just so perfect and easy to doctor up to fit in with my colors. Hope my new friend wears hats!!
I am getting ready to wrap everything so I can ship out tomorrow!!
