100 Good Wishes Quilt

I completed my "One Hundred Good Wishes Quilt" for Alyzabeth last year (I didn't sew it; I collected the fabric and wishes; my MIL did the beautiful handiwork). I was very eager to collect the "squishes" and many of you sent them back in 2006 and 2007.

Recently, I signed up at Seventh Diamond's blog to send a squish to Kelly (for her baby Elizabeth, her second) and discovered I did not have any ready to mail. So I finally printed up some more and am back in business.
If any of you would like to swap squishes with me (a wish and fabric square), please let me know. We received more squares than we could use in Alyzabeth's quilt. The additional squares (and any new ones) are going to be sewn into fantastic shams and a wall "sampler".
Any time you have a desire to help an adopting family or an orphaned child, check out what Kim is doing at Seventh Diamond. She always has a shower, raffle, auction or collection going on. Please support the children.

And now back to the daily count down - we (as in me - Alyson) are guessing 24 days to go before referrals! I began the daily count down here.
No more years & months of waiting!

If you watch NASCAR, you will recognize this car as Jeff Gordon's. He's my 3rd favorite driver (yes, I have several I cheer for). Proud to have him in our count down!

I need to get on having my quilt sewn. I just love all the fabric. I often just go through it an admire it.

Have a good Tuesday.
