For more info about the threads of love project and details about how you can contribute link to my first post http://quilt4nie.blogspot.com/2008/09/welcome-welcome-what-please-donate-4.html

Many suggestions have been made to make quilts for the Chief, Stephanie, and Christian as well. I would be happy to sew more quilts with any extra fabric I receive. If you would like to contribute to their quilts I am also going to start a collection for each of them. Thank you for supporting the Nielsons through threads of love!

The List

I am not the eloquent blogger most aspire to be and don't really even try. I mostly settle at the transfer of information, the easiest form being a list; thus, in easy form, here is my accomplishments of the last 4 weeks.

01. Endured the 10 day flu.
02. Stayed out of the way for a week while the new gas furnace was installed in our rental house by 2 friendly men from El Salvador.
03. Learned a few new Spanish words.
04. Cleaned and vaccumed for a week after the furnace was installed.
05. Started a new part time job as the "office manager" at my brother's NAPA store, only working while my children are sleeping or my husband is home.
06. Finished sewing 4 beautiful quilts for the 4 beautiful Nielson children.
07. Left to do, a trip to the post office to send them to Alaska, post pictures for you all, and start the whole process over with the 3 remaining quilts!

Oh the joy of living life, seriously, all but the flu has been joyful.
