Mountain Baby Blankets

I recently discovered a new blog and I immediately felt a call to DO SOMETHING. As if I need another project on my plate, but this one is too dear to me and I can't let it go. I've been thinking about this all weekend and trying desperately to think of something to do. I'm not so overly ambitious that I feel like I can just whip something up and put everything else on hold. I know better. It would just end up in that pile of WIP's that I'm currently working on. So, for now the best I can do is share it with you guys in hopes that maybe one of you is available right now, or has an extra quilt hanging around that you might want to share. In the meantime I'm continuing to work on my WIP list and then this little project will become front and center.

Have you seen the Diane Sawyer special on the Appalachian Mountain Region. If you haven't, you must watch it. I had to watch it in parts because it just moves me to tears and tears tend to freak my little guys out. I grew up in KY and while I wasn't in eastern KY, I was only a few hours away. I went to college with quite a few people from "mountain country" and I'm humbled to see that this area is not being forgotten about. Please, take the time to watch the special and if you aren't too busy with life take a moment to say a prayer and maybe whip something up for a baby in need.

God Bless

Thanks for stopping by. I had rachel email me the code and I can't figure it out. I need to have my blogger friend help me. Her sister is in town until Thursday then I'm going to see if she can walk me though it. I have one quilt ready to stipple and I will whip up another one or two within the next couple days. I feel very blessed also and felt like I needed to do something. I'm at a point in things that I can drop everything and do a few baby quilts. I will just have to keep praying for the people in Kentucky. Be blessed, Heather
