I need to ask you all a favor, it's a biggie, and you can all help: A quilt blogger, Kristin, has a husband who's currently serving in Iraq and has got a little side project going.
It's called Iraqi Bundles of Love, and it we can all participate. He's coming home soon, and he wants to leave behind something of value. You can read about the idea here, at Kristin's blog: http://kristinlaflamme.com/musings/?p=1102
So he's asking for fabric, yarns, pins, needles, thread, etc. You put all this neat stuff in a USPS Large Flat Rate Box and send it out. All the information is on his blogs. You have to leave a comment to get the shipping address, and you have to act fast. The deadline for shipping from the US is September 7.
If you live outside the US, you can participate too, leave a comment on the blog Iraqi Bundles of Love, and Mr IBOL will email you.
