1. Sewers and knitters, hurry and scour your stash–the Iraqi Bundles of Love project is taking donations through September 7th. The project wants to get sewing supplies into the hands of Iraqi women. It’s all organized by one soldier:
Willing contributors can send to me a flat-rate box of sewing / quilting [or knitting] supplies, all bundled up. I’ll open the box, pull out the fully-contained bundle, and hand it off (with others) to our counterparts in the Iraqi Security Forces (Army and others) or the local police, for them to distribute. Some of the bundles will also be delivered by US Soldiers.
I’m just not sure something can get to an APO address in a week…maybe Priority Mail is a better idea? I only heard about this yesterday, but I hope to put something together.
2. Bonnie Tyler brings back fond memories of my old roommate. Here’s a flowchart for “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” in case you need it (click for big):
3. And the quilt looks fantastic! On to the finishing–pictures soon.
