For many years I had been heavily involved with the Charity Bee in our local guild. This group of 10-15 ladies meets weekly to create quilts for the local battered women’s shelter, the Prevent Child Abuse organization, local senior citizen groups and others who are so much in need.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to be involved much in the last 18 months, so last week I happily rejoined the group. There was much laughing, sewing and even a bit of singing!!!
I found some fun bug fabric in amongst our stash and started cutting out a small quilt which I just finished up……
It will be returned to the group and one of the women will use their long-arm machine to quilt it, someone else will bind it and it will wing it’s way to a happy owner.
It feels good to be giving something back……..
