The Joyful Foundation

Yesterday, my church hosted The Joyful Foundation's Blankets of Kindness. Some local women (and men) came together to make blankets for terminally ill people. I took my sewing machine and was seated in the final step--top stitching the blanket together (which made me really nervous). My machine was giving me trouble, so someone suggested I change my needle. (I have had this machine for over a year and never changed the needle.) Lo and behold, it solved my problem and I was able to help sew quite a few blankets together. I was there for 4 hours and when I left, we had just completed the 45th blanket. They were pretty cute! Here are some pictures from the event (sorry my camera's flash didn't make it bright enough).
After this, I was in a sewing mood, so I came home and finished putting together the strips for D's quilt. I think it's going to end up looking great!
