The Next Batch of Anti-Ouch Pouches Done!
After we washed windows this morning, it was time for me to play in my sewing room. I finished the anti-ouch pouch kits I picked up at the July Quilt Club meeting, so that task is done for a month. This time I decided to take 14 kits. I've challenged myself to make 100 in 2015 and this brings me to 78. We don't meet in December, so I need to keep the pace up the rest of the year if I'm going to reach my goal. Cancer, in its various forms, has been the big killer in my family. It makes me feel better to know there is a practical, hands-on way I can help bring comfort to some of its victims. The bags are filled with Polyfill stuffing and used by breast cancer patients to cushion the surgical wound site.
The crepe myrtles in our yard have been especially pretty this summer.
