Another exciting aspect of the Show n' Tell at this year's retreat was a sneak peek at the Hearts & Hands for Sendai quilts . Leslie organized this event in support for the devastation created by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Sendai, Japan, earlier this year. 92 crazy quilt blocks were created and donated! Now, Leslie is putting the blocks all together and we were able to get a look at them in progress. They are wonderful and my terrible photography in no way does them justice! Thousands of people lost their lives as a result of the earthquake in March so hopefully the money raised from the exhibition and subsequent sale of these quilts will help in the continuing relief efforts. They will all be heading off to Japan soon.
I have lots of posts on embroidery, needlework and crazy quilting. Right now, in the time of Covid pandemic, my interests have turned to living frugally, gardening, cooking, etc. A regular Suzie Homemaker!
