A Day Late and a Dollar Short. . .


Welcome to another round of Operation: Pay It Forward.
Did you accomplish your giving goals for the month?
I did.
Well, almost. . .
My goal was 10 quilt blocks for

Here is what I actually finished:


7 completed blocks. . . not quite 10. . .

And for:





Giving Back to our Communities

my goal was to make 5 bags. . .



But somehow I only ended up with 4. Hmmmm. . .

But hey! Part of my goal is much better than nothing. . .

So, how did you do on your goals? If you sewed anything for a charity organization in the month of July, leave a comment and tell me what you accomplished. Your name will be entered in a drawing for 5 fat quarters from Jennifer Paganelli's Flower Power line. I will randomly pick one winner from the comments on Aug. 5, mid-day-ish. ;0)

Now, for my August goals, I have found another organization to sew for (thanks, Lisa!). It is called Dress A Girl Around the World. Their goal is to make and send dresses to girls all around the world, especially in impoverished nations. You can donate money, pillowcases (for pillowcase dresses) or make dresses to donate.

My goal is to make 5 dresses by the end of August.

(Hopefully I will be a little more diligent this month. . .)

What is your goal?

If you donate something sewn in the month of August, come back here in early September for another giveaway.

Last month, I made 10 rainbow blocks, and 4 swaddling blankets for Project Linus. This month, I'm going to make as many pillowcases as I can for Craft Hope!

In July I sewed 14 pillowcases for the Craft Hope project that's going on right now!

I had never heard of the Dress a Girl Around The World project. Looks great. I wish I had more time for that right now!

I made 16 cooling scarves for Operation Care Package. Simple to make, easy to donate and good for the soul.
