Project Linus and Other Charities

Just wanted everyone to know that I'm going to be giving away my remaining fleece blankets to Project Linus. I also have a ton of fabric left that I'm going to make more blankets and donate. I do have non-kid fabric that I would like to make lap robes to give to veterans or nursing homes but I don't know who to contact. If anyone has any ideas I would love to know.

Also, I've made a few pet beds (small dog and cat size) that I would like to give to a shelter. I have a couple of places that I am going to call but if you know of something in the Chicago suburb area let me know what you think of those rescues.

Trying New Things

With my creations that is. Some of you may have already heard of Cafe Press. It's basically a website where you can take your creations and put them on just about anything. You can also buy other people's creations. For my first attempt I took a photo of a quilt square and put it on a few items. Here is a framed tile:

It actually looks much better at the site. If you get a chance to look around and let me know what you think, that would be great. I have it on note cards, buttons and magnets, too. My Cafe Press spot can be reached by clicking here. I'm hoping this can get me more motivated to create more. It feels nice (and fun) to see what I've done on something else.
