I have been writing about a special project that I am helping to coordinate for the Childrens Hospital. It is a VERY special wall hanging for kids in the pediatric brain cancer ward. Many folks from across the world are particapating in this endeavor and I am hoping that more will find it in their schedules and their hearts to join in! The quiltlets are 6 x 8 inches and embellished in an Under The Sea theme. They are then sandwiched with quilt batting, backed and seamed as a normal quilt, packaged up and sent to me. These quiltlets are going to be joined with free standing "fishie" creations at their tips! If you are interested in particapating, please leave a comment here or contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This project is all the more special to me now, as my friend, who is the inspiration for this endeavor, Pamela McCombs, is currently in the hospital with severe head injuries from an auto accident. Pam raises funds for research thru the "Ride for Kids" charity function every year and this last year reached an all time individual contribution high of over $11,000.00 for research for these special kids!
