This past Christmas(2013), instead of exchanging gifts with my siblings, we agreed to donate our time or gifts to charities since Christmas is the season for giving. My giving will be donating several quilts to organizations that distribute quilts to those in need. The time, cost and love I stitch into each quilt will be passed on to someone in need.
I recently donated a bed quilt to Quilts of Valor, dedicated to my dad and older brother, both of whom are war veterans.
