I've got something a little different for us today - please take a minute to read this and consider participating!
I want to invite you to join in something very special. My friend Pam (one of our quilt ministry members) started a quilt for her father long ago - a beautiful king size quilt that she chose to hand-quilt in a Baptist Fan pattern. Well, by the time she got close to finishing it, her father had suffered some health setbacks and is now living in a nursing home, where a king-size quilt is just too much for his needs. Not wanting to let her work of love go to waste, she decided to use it as a fundraiser for Blood:Water Mission. She hopes to raise enough money to allow a well to be dug in an African village!
Pam blogs over at Learning To Be Me, and you can read more about her raffle and the quilt there. She's offering one entry to win the quilt for every $10 donated, and I know I'm going to be entering - I've seen this quilt personally, and it's a gorgeous thing! And she'll even pay to ship it to the winner. You can also make a donation by clicking on the donation box at the top right of my blog - but be sure to go to Pam's blog afterwards and let her know that you did! She's got instructions there for how to contact her.
It would also be wonderful if you could help spread the word - this is a great cause and a chance to win a fabulous quilt! Win-win!!
