Charity update

Since the Champagne Quilters like to take a break for the summer, we wanted to finish up the quilt that was on the frame.

We finished putting the last quilt stitches in this quilt last Wednesday and I bound it the very next day. So now we have two quilts going to The Silent Children's Mission.

Marg has been very busy crocheting little baby hats. Here's 75 hats that she completed in a few short weeks.

And here's a dozen more that I picked up from her today. 
I was told that there was a shipment of baby things going overseas on July 28th so I'm glad that these items were all completed in time.

I'm busy with a quilt on the frame at the moment and that's why I've been a bit quiet. Once it's finished, I'll take a photo and show you.

Go and check out what other Canadians are up to this week at: The Needle and Thread Network.


  1. The Silent Children\s Mission will be pleased. You guys did a great job on that quilt. The hats are adorable. Nice charity project.

  2. What a beautiful quilt finish and impressive, all the hats Marg made! I contacted the Silent Children's Mission, but u fortunately they don't have a branch in Europe.

  3. Stopping by from WIP Wednesday @TN&TN. The star quilt is lovely and I'm sure will be much appreciated as will the hats. And my goodness that's a lot of hats she made.

  4. Your little group is awesome for doing all of that stitching for others. I'm sure the quilts and hats will be much appreciated.

  5. Excellent work! Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!

  6. Over 75 hats? Her needles must be flying. Wow.

  7. The new quilt looks great. Marg must not have time to watch TV while she crochets all those hats!
