What's Up Wednesday

What are you up to today?  As I mentioned, my youngest starts school today, and her headed-to-college-brother and I are going to see a movie...."R" rated!....guess who's not happy about that ;-)
I-373 Puzzling Memories by Peggy Mages

Today is the last day to place a bid on selected quilts from the Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece exhibit.  All proceeds go to fund Alzheimer's research. Any day is a good day to buy a Priority: Alzheimer's quilt...visit the Quilts for Sale page! | spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

I saw Craft Hope updated their website with their latest crafty news.  Project 14:  Christmas in Dixie is providing handmade stockings to 12,000 families that lost everything in the tornadoes. The deadline for this project is September 23 so head on over to read the details.

Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics is a nine-part documentary series airing on PBS this fall.  I have bookmarked this site to watch the trailer when I have more time, but it seems very interesting.  The DVD is already for sale on their website.

Since I haven't been online much lately (big surprise, right?), I'm sure there is much more going on in the quilting world that I am not's up?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!!


  1. Thanks for the tip about that series on PBS! I am going to try to watch it.

    I loved seeing the latest project from Craft Hope. Seems like a cool way to help others.

  2. Love Peggy's quilt you're showing there! I'll go see what's up at craft hope. Thanks

  3. I am having trouble keeping up with everything, too, Rene'. I have missed appointments lately and everything, which is really unlike me. My daughter is going into second grade, and I'm struggling with that one!
