helping out others

this is my portion of a quilt that will be donated to a lodge in Wisconsin---in support for Faith's Lodge, a non-profit organization that provides a place where couples and families facing the serious illness or death of a child can retreat to reflect on the past, renew strength for the present and build hope for the future.
I belong to a Thimbleberries lovers' email list and i find this to be rather fitting to make a couple quilts for this project!
I enjoyed doing this portion--I needed practice with the flying geese! LOL ...
right now, I am cq-ing a purple block for a RR and I am working on a challenge quilted wall hanging and crocheting a doily to enter in a contest....ok-ok--for those of you who cant stand the wait --here is a pic --tada---I really need to get this typed up! hahahaha.

took the girls out for a walk--everything that blooms down here is having is pollen blow from here to timbuctoo (sp)--I am really sick of these high winds..(6 days now) .not to mention what it will do with any fires that may pop up! none of this is helping my nose or throat.
think I need a nap today--*~*CAROLE*~*

Hi Carole,
I'm a CQforNewbies lurker mostly and just found your blog. Wisconsin lept out of your most recent post (where I grew up). And it sounds like Faith Lodge is a bit like the Ronald MacDonald house that our local quilt guild has for a project. Like your doily! (I admire crochet but do much more knitting.) Happy Stitching!

I so admire anyone who can crochet, and here you are designing crochet patterns! Beautiful doily!

Carole - I love seeing all of your Thimbleberries projects in progress! I already made my Lakeland Pines top but haven't worked on my tree blocks for the big Lodge quilt. Aren't the fabrics this year gorgeous?

Can you give me any info about your online Thimbleberries group? I belong to one, but the conversations and projects seem to be going toward other fabric lines... If there are any openings at your group, I'd love to join!
