Several more red and white blocks have been added to my design wall. More are needed and some of these may not make the final cut, but I feel like I am closing in on this project. There is one bright block in the very center that bothers me.
My Tuesday sewing friends and I finished kitting up all four tubs of fabric that we had been given for anti-ouch pouches. Last Wednesday, 509 kits were delivered to the project coordinator at the guild meeting. Once packaged with sewing instructions, they can be distributed to the membership for construction.
I was recently reminded that it has been a while since I explained what anti-ouch pouches are. They are a small cushion with adjustable straps that hang from the shoulder and provide protection to the surgical site for patients who have undergone breast surgeries or biopsies. Working on this project gives me great joy because we hear from the recipients and know they are used and appreciated. The web address for the pattern is listed on my sidebar.
The average last freeze date for this area is February 23rd. It will be interesting to see if that’s the case this year. We are already seeing a lot of plants in bloom and I spotted some baby geese while driving home today.
