Stitching. for. good.

Hello there!
I hope you have been having a great week... here on the North Coast I have been totally & utterly distracted by the tempting technology out there & have succumbed to the evils of both pinterest & facebook! Do drop in & say hello, but be careful.... they may seem harmless enough, but they are COMPLETELY ADDICTIVE & should carry serious health warnings!!
Despite all these distractions, I'm so delighted to say that one thing I have managed to do this week is to start the new CARE circle of do. Good Stitches with help from some lovely quilty folk around the world. Some of you may be familiar with do. Good Stitches, but for those of you who aren't, this is a charitable, modern quilting bee which aims to make beautiful quilts for people in need. It is the brainchild of the incredibly talented Rachel Hauser from stitched in color & there are now 150 amazing sewers from 15 individual do. Good Stitches bees who each month make a quilt for their designated charity. Wow! You are all amazing! 
Our new CARE circle is going to be such fun & includes: Dolores (a-labour-of-love), Kat (mummastimetocreate), Kylie (three-honeybees), Bronica (nutterbug), Lucy (Lucy Fleur), Annabella (Life's Rich Pattern), Cindy (fluffysheepquilting), Leanne (daisyandjack) & Kristin (kristin). For our first quilt we are making starflowers in red & aqua & they are such a happy block to make...
If you have a moment, do drop by any of the CARE circle ladies & say hello...they would love to meet you!
I'm off now to try to make my mosaic for three zippy ladies (!!), but in the meantime I'll leave you with a wee photo taken outside my parents house the other night....
Thanks for stopping by!
