This post serves a dual purpose: the most important being to let you know that Bernie from Needle and Foot is collecting lap size quilts to give to her local hospital, Mercy Hospital, to comfort dying patients. If you are inclined to donate quilts, as I was moved to do, please visit Bernie to have her explain all about the program and how she learned about them: Creating Mercy-ful Quilts.
I quickly pulled 2 lap size quilts to send to Bernie, but I was out of the large “board game” size USPS priority mail boxes. We had this lovely 16x16x16 box that seemed just right… so I filled it all the way up with a total of 6 quilts. I am positive that the quilts are going to where they are needed most, and it helped me downsize just a bit more.
The second purpose of this blog post is to test out my website’s scheduled blog posting ability. My website was attacked by spam bots on Thursday and taken down for almost half of the day (boo!), and in the course of trying to protect my site, my scheduled blog posts have not been publishing as planned; I have been having to manually publish them when I wake up in the morning. I would have liked to just publish this post ASAP, but hopefully this works as planned. Fingers crossed!
