The New Zealand tragedy
New Zealand has had yet another tragedy, with a mine entrapment, and several families affected by it. A quilter in NZ, is putting out an all call for some blocks. Her plan is to make quilts for the families and children of the miners. Please go to her blog and read up on it.
Whenever I hear of horrific events, it never fails to amaze me, the heartfelt grace that quilters possess, and are so willing to step up and DO something.
The miners and families are in my prayers, now, could YOU spare a block? She does have some specifics, so please read up on it. She also has her address available.
Oh, if you slip a block in a card , you can mail it first class without a customs form. You can also send it to me to mail for you. I'm getting a wee bit of something to pop into the mail, after the holiday weekend. Email me if you want to send it to me, and I'll send you my address and I'll wait for your letter to reach me before I send it off to New Zealand.
Thank you fellow quilters, ya'll are awesome...Elaine
