Life is really busy for the Quilting Professor this time of year, because it is the end of the year - lots of ceremonies and receptions and things like that... three more weeks until the quieter summer schedule begins.
I bring you a top today that has quite a story...
I often make quilts for an organization called Wrap -A-Smile, that sends those quilts out with surgeons who do facial disfigurement surgery in third-world countries. Well, one of the people on that medical mission saw our quilts, wrapping beautiful children post-surgery, and wanted to help. She bought some fabric in Africa, and brought it home to the US, for us to use in quilts...
And from it, I made this kid-sized top:
And, once this is quilted, it will go to Wrap A Smile, and go off on a medical mission... why, perhaps it will go to Africa !!!
What amazing fabric - Africa to the US, and then off to some unknown destination!
Quilting is so amazing sometimes.
I close with a couple of photos of my kitty, Mystic... he is so hard to photograph, to capture his nutty, goofy self... but I think these show a bit of his true personality... They are taken from his favorite perch, way up high on top of the china cabinet... doesn't he just have the most gorgeous amber eyes?
