Have you been following the progress of Di's Stitchin' Mission project through her blog? Her aim is to teach non-quilters the pleasure of making quilts. Starting with simple patterns, the women will donate their quilts to the KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning & Care Centre.
Di is a lovely friend I first met years ago through Scquilters and often catch-up with at our Sydney Scquilters get togethers. Today Di brought along a friend - Linda Hungerford from the USA, who started the Stitchin' Mission project in her town of Des Moines, Iowa. It was a true delight to meet and chat with Linda, who was bubbling with enthusiasm for all things quilty!
I so love the fact that blogging can connect people throughout the world. Even more, I love it when we meet face-to-face with people we know 'virtually' and immediately find a lot to talk about.
