Pamela's fundraiser quilts

Some of Pamela's quilted fundraiser items.

One of the great things about blogs is the ability to sign up as a "follower" of blogs that interest you. Every day when I sign on, I get a list of new posts on my favorite blogs -- sort of like being handed a morning briefing at work, except instead of being about "work" it's about "play."

I always look forward to an update from the
 Art of Being Pamela blog:

So today I'm publishing a link to Pam's blog post about a project she started last year at the Michigan hospital where she is a nurse. This year, she distributed pieces of fabric that co-workers made into quilt blocks. Then she collected the blocks and turned them into two small quilts, three art quilts, three pillows and two tote bags that will be sold to raise money for the Sue Maher Foundation.

You can see more photos at her colorful blog here:

Happy blogging, and thanks to all of you who "follow" me. I love seeing your faces every morning when I sign on.

Have a colorful day

Wow, Sherrie, thank you so much--this is wonderful!! I know what you mean about enjoyable briefing--because of my crazy work schedule, it's sometimes several days before I get back to my blog. But catching up with those I follow and reading all the great comments is like a gift every time! Thanks again. Take care my friend.

Great cause and link to share. I'm always amazed at all the wonderful, good work being done in many fields, and in all parts of the world - most of which doesn't make the news. THANK YOU for making my day!!
