May 14 2013 Quilting Newsletter


Good Day to all on this beautiful May morning here in Brissy. Just love this time of the year Ė very good for the soul Iím sure.

Itís the Week of the Volunteer in Australia (and probably around the globe) and Iím mindful of all the nameless, faceless people who consistently arrive at soup kitchens, opportunity shops, homeless shelters, drive hospital patients, visit the sick and dying, care for the disabled and the many thousands of quilters and crafters who make articles for the needy.

I know I havenít mentioned every volunteer that exists, that would be impossible, but it is important for us to pause in our busy lives and give thanks to those who offer their time, spare resources and empathy for those in need.

Itís hard and even scary to imagine what our world would be like without volunteers. It would also be difficult for me to imagine not volunteering as part of my day to day activities. Helping others is an amazing form of therapy for me and helps me to keep my own issues in perspective. I can thoroughly recommend it!

It was Mothers Day last week, and I posted some ideas for gifts for quilters that Iíve sourced from the web. Hereís the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art180473.asp

Thanks for those wonderful readers who were able to give us some clues to the quilt book that our reader was looking for. Iím waiting to hear if we hit the jackpot, Iíll keep you posted.

Iíve had a bit of spare time this week and have been surfing on the web for some interesting goodies for you. Here they are, and have fun!
