A little while ago, a blogger friend put out a challenge, making blocks to share with other quilters – she’d collect the blocks, divvy them up, and send them back out again. This looked like a lot of fun, so I joined in, got busy making my blocks, mailed them off just before the deadline, and then waited – and waited – and waited some more. As did our hostess! A couple of people failed to send their blocks in. In the end, our hostess decided to send out the blocks she had to those who’d participated, so we could all get on with making the quilts.
How disappointing. And how very discouraging for our hostess!
This morning I read of a ‘helping’ place. Hayley over at Mrs. Pickles Garden has created a Flicker group called Bees Helping Bees
It’s a place to go if you’re missing some blocks for your quilting bee, if you need a helping hand getting it all together.
What a great idea, what a kindness, and what a relief!
So, if you’re in a position needing help, or if you think you can help others, check it out. Just click here to see what it’s all about.
Happy helpers! Blessings, Peg
We should be on our way to California this morning, just a couple of things to tidy up at this end before we can actually head out – will post pictures of our travels!
