Quilts For Kids and Lulu

I received this reply from Lulu's Auntie Julia about the little quilt I sent for Lulu's benefit dinner.

Karen...your gorgeous quilt had a mason jar in front of it OVERFLOWING with raffle tickets! A very happy winner took it home and you helped raise quite a bit of money for LuLu! Thanks again.

Needless to say, it warmed the cockles of my heart*.
So in honor of sick kids everywhere, I want to do a little something....drum roll please.....kidding....

I'm making a 2010 New Years resolution to make one (small) quilt a month to give away to a sick or needy kid. I'm going to need the help of my Auntie Kathleen and anyone else who can light a fire under me (MSA, Chuck) to keep me accountable. I STINK at NY resolutions and I never make them (always thought they were kinda dumb). But I've been so inspired by Lulu and her family. Over the next year, if anyone knows a kid who could use a little blankie, let me know and I shall whip up a special one for that child. I've actually already gotten started. I ordered two quilt kits from Quilts For Kids to get started. These will be my Jan and Feb donations.

DEF: cock·le (kŏk'əl) : if something you see or hear warms the cockles of your heart, it makes you feel happy because it shows that people can be good and kind.

I am so proud of you! That is so awesome you were able to help that family. It is amazing how we can use our gifts/talents to help others.
