I'm one of the lucky ones
My children are just as fortunate. They've had clothes on their backs, a roof over their heads and food in their tummies, (three times a day) and they were reminded of that every time they asked why they didn't get an allowance.
The Oakville Quilters Guild is holding a free workshop, with fabulous door prizes and a free catered lunch for its members on Saturday, March 27th. We are making "over" quilts to send to the children at Grace Children's Hospital in Port-au-Prince. There are no sheets, no pillowcases, no towels, no washcloths. The buildings that these supplies were in -- gone! So structurally unsound that you cannot enter. Staff so terrified of what could happen again, they cannot enter.
Starting on Tuesday I will feature a variety of "over" quilts that you can make to contribute to this most worthwhile cause. The quilts will measure approximately 36" x 36" when completed. There is no batting inside these quilts, just cotton pieces sewn together -- that's all.
