Help for Japan...and a giveaway

The group at Crazy Quilting International is asking for 8" quilt squares, both crazy and 'sane' quilted, for their 'Hearts and Hands For Sendai' fundraiser for the people in Japan.  Please go to their site HERE for further details and the guidelines.  Please consider getting involved because it's something we quilters CAN do to help the people in Japan.

Further in my attempts to clear out my stash, I have three envies stuffed with paper ephemera up for grabs.  If you're interested in winning one, just leave me a comment on this post and I'll draw the names of the three winners on Monday Mar. 28th.  Go ahead, don't be shy!!

  1. Well if there are no others asking!! I don't want to be piggy!!!! I have a swap with someone in Australia (no, not Kaite) at the end of this month and I haven't even started my collecting. Sigh!

  8. The Hearts and Hands is such a wonderful project which I will be entering along with about 6 of the women I teach patchwork to. They are all happy to be involved. I would love to be in your draw too as I am using more paper ephemera these days in my journals.
    Thanks so much for your wonderful comment on my brooche hanger. I think there will be lots making one now and I am really happy about sharing this.
    Love, Suzy

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
