After making that last "Princess" quilt - and realizing that I was spending a bit too much time worrying about my own artistic sensitivities I decided to find an organization that would accept homemade quilts for kids and have just signed up for Project Linus. Two comments gave me this idea - one came from HB - who gently pointed out that the child who was receiving my quilt would love it, and from Kerstin who pointed out how much her daughter would love a princess quilt. How scared those poor kids must be - in a hospital, feeling sick and miserable - without their comforting toys and blankies. I hope that donating to this charity will help in a tiny way - and a new princess quilt will be started as soon as possible.
Sometimes it takes a gentle kick to get me out of my own head - and back into the real world. Thanks friends.
