This is a Instagram event that usually happens in the Fall every year. I have participated in the last three years, well I guess since I started on IG. It was one of the fun events that brought me new friends and wonderful scraps and UFO projects that needed love. I am always so touched by the generous nature of Quilters and Crafters alike. I find so much joy in giving and happiness at the joy I can bring to others as do so many others.
I often am blessed to be able to gift for more then I receive. I have seen some amazing projects come out of the bits of fabrics that I have sent out to new homes. It is truly a gift that keeps giving.
I have been gifted many UFO blocks/projects and have in turn finished them to donate to a needy cause in my local area or State. A way of paying it forward. Something that is near to my heart is to keep the blessings going moving forward. Last year I was able to donate over 11 quilts and miscellaneous items. I give from my heart, not to gain or seek acknowledgement. So if you are a giver like me or you find that you need to let go of items, projects, scraps, books or mags. you might just want to take a look at #getyourquiltywishesgrantedsummeredition to see if you can grant a wish or two. You can then in turn ask for a wish or two or not, that is completely up to you. Building friendship and camaraderie amongst fellow quilters and crafters is a happy by-product of this wonderful event.
I am not sure who started this but this time around it was Jennifer @yokokudo88 who started this version. A bit of fun for all in the beginning of Summer. Thank you Jennifer! This was just the distraction that I needed in my very crazy world right now.
Until next time………………………………………..share what you can, the blessing is two fold.
