Fires in Austin - call for quilts
copyright Deanna Roy
After months of extreme heat and zero rain, the city of Austin and surrounding areas have fallen victim to wildfires. In three short days, more than 700 families have lost their homes. Tens of thousands of acres have been destroyed. And the fires continue on. Above is an image of the Austin skyline, with the smoke from the Bastrop fire.
If you quilt, sew, crochet, or knit, now is the time to donate a blanket! If you are looking for a donation place, Project Linus is always great. Also consider the quilt drive being spear-headed by Modern Day Quilts!
I've already got one quilt to donate. Can you help out?
