For Haiti Children.
Simple. Fast. Easy to make.
Can you help?
Please say YES!
Let's make up some Hope Ditty Bags for the Children in Haiti.

Here is another one.
You can make these or others of your choice,
you can even buy the inexpensive small canvas totes...
paint or decorate them...
The one's I'm making are about 11" across by 13" high, I'm using clothesline rope as the drawstrings. Make sure you leave a nice big area for the drawstrings to go thru.

In my seeking sun quest, I have worked on my orange modified coin quilt pieces... and have finished 6 strips.
We are going to seek sun ourselves and head South this morning to St. George for the weekend. Looking forward to 50's and 60's temps, blue skies, SUNSHINE!!! Maybe even a little hike in the red rock country.
May you have sunshine and joy!

Pictured is the beginnings of a coin quilt. I am sewing strips together that are 2 1/4" X 15", then will cut it into thirds (5" strips) for the coin stacks. I picked out what I could of brown/pink/red tones from my stash.
I also started on a more primitive looking modified coin quilt from way old scrap stash. It is UGLY!!!! I like the pinks better!
But this is my resolution for 2010... MAKE QUILTS.
