A really big goal
Our next project is the quilts for the kids who have aged out of the foster system. Their party is August 27. (My 28th wedding anniversary!) I was originally told there were about 45 kids who would be attending and then today was told it was more like 100. Yikes! That's about 6 weeks from now so if I can do 3 quilts a day, I could make it and hopefully won't overload my binding buddies. That will be one way of getting fabric and rolls of batting out of here for sure. And I know I can drop off finished quilts with my friend who helps with the party because she has a really big house and can store the quilts until the party.
Having a goal is good for me because it gets me off the couch and working on something. Now, to learn to say to to more donations, at least until I get this batch sorted! And to find people in our group who need some yarn. The man who donated it says he and his wife were married 54 years. She passed away last year and he was finally able to let it go. She has fabric too, but his daughter in law wanted to pick out a few things first. I wonder how much fabric she had if she had this much yarn. I'm talking a FULL truck load.
