2 Quilts finished- just in time to leave

I am preparing to pack and leave- I have a 1st Birthday party to attend...
So I am busy trying to pack and get things in order for my being gone for nearly 3 weeks...
Oh I am going to have FUN with that baby!!!

But in getting ready- I finished the comfort quilt for Zach's parents. It is a shooting star pattern.

They loved it. I hope it brings them much comfort in the lonely days ahead.

My friend in OK, Gina, lost her Mom unexpectedly from cancer. With about a week to go before I left for my trip, I didn't have time to make her a quilt from scratch SO I made her an Orphan block quilt. Some are donated blocks from friends who give me scraps towards these comfort quilts. This one turned out very pretty.

I will present her with it on friday when I get my hair done.


Last but not least.... Jan 24th is a VERY IMPORTANT DATE if you are interested in a pet.
It is Change A Pet's Life Day and Hill's Science diet is sponsoring it.

"Get involved in CHANGE A PET'S LIFE DAY and open your home to a pet. The first ten adoptions at participating Hill's partner shelters are free on January 24, 2009. New pet owners will also receive a starter kit that includes free Hill's® Science Diet® pet food and tips to give their adopted cat or dog the best start in their new life."
So if you are looking for that RIGHT friend to share your days with- check it out... they just might be waiting for you!

I need to get some sleep.... tomorrow is my big packing day!!! I ALWAYS forget a bunch of stuff... oh well- it's all about seeing that baby and loving all over him! Can't wait.....
Later Darlin'
