Holiday Season Wishes
So the holiday hustle has kicked in! I have spent nearly every waking minute over the past week sewing, knitting, or quilting. Sadly I don't have much to share at this point in time because I am working on gifts for some of the folks who read this blog! So in an effort to be sneaky and secretive I'm keeping things under wraps for now.
I can tell you about some fun had on Instagram last weekend though. The community of makers on Instagram is really amazing, and oh so generous! There has been a fun trend of granting wishes for total strangers, hashtags such as #getyouryarnwishesgranted and #getyourquiltywishesgranted have been running rampant and everyone is so happy to give! It has been such fun and really wonderful to see people showing such kindness. My first quilty wish is a wish within a wish really, I requested finished quilt tops either those that have been set aside and the quilter has no intention to ever pick up and finish or those prepared for charity donations. For me these quilt tops will give me things to work on in between customer quilts when I don't have any of my own to load up. They will also provide a canvas to practice new ideas and motifs in preparation for customer quilts. In the end though, they will be donated to different charities and hopefully fill someone else's quilty wish.
I received a number of responses, so I look forward to being busy over the next few weeks, I am always happy to quilt for charity so please keep me in mind. I am so excited to get started spreading the quilty love and am expecting the first arrival tomorrow. As I work on these charity quilts I will be sure to share them with you! I hope you all are looking for ways to spread kindness and love this holiday season.
