October!!! Really!!!????…………

And stash raiding continues. In my last post I share some placemats for a senior dining group in a nearby town and, after thinking a bit, thought it might be a day-brightener for our local folks who receive the “Meals on Wheels” at noon in their homes. Some are quite alone (especially these days). Last Monday, our Houston (MN) quilt group met and agreed to the idea so off to my stash I went and the results are following. Once again they are reversible….Autumn and Winter………………… IMG_1869side 2…IMG_1870                 I made 3 of the above and 2 of these.. IMG_1871side 2..IMG_1872 The pumpkin idea was from the “Primitive Quilts” magazine (see previous post). IMG_1873

    I absolutely love this idea, Doreen! Meals on Wheels is one of my all time favorite charities and places to volunteer (although I have not done it here yet) and I know that those placemats will bring much joy and happiness. Thanks for doing that!

      Sadly, these folks need this even more now that so many are home-bound or sequestered because of the virus without opportunity of family/friend’s visits………………..

    I can just imagine the joy of the folk when they see your gorgeous placements when their meals are delivered. Such love and kindness, Doreen. The pumpkins are fabulous. They ate perfect for this time of year. It was a joy to visit your lovely place this morning. You have put a smile in my day. Kim (Sarah Lizzies)
