beauty in the world

My dad sends me emails. Lots of them funny, some of them serious and some seriously depressing. I always read them and sometimes wish I hadn’t. At times the world can seem to be going in the wrong direction, no one at the wheel, no place in a cloudy day for the sun to shine through.
But then it does.
Today I received a lovely email from one of the participants in the current Holiday Traditions Exchange. She has participated before and so “knows” the history of the exchange and the woman who hosts it each year. Meg~If you are reading this, please move along, we’re going to say nice things about you~
Valerie suggested that we put together another exchange of sorts. The kind of exchange where anyone, (yes, you!) can participate.  She thought it might be a lovely idea to put the word out that we are looking to make a quilt (or two) for Meg and her family to enjoy and have while they are away from home during the transition time after their new baby is born. I think this is brilliant and I’m so happy she thought of it~

I know this is a very busy time of year for so, so many of you, but if you have just a moment to knit or sew a quick square, we’d surely love to have you send it on. We’ll make sure they get fixed up into beautiful blankets and sent out by the end of January so that they may accompany this sweet, sweet family on the next leg of their journey.
Won’t you take this journey with us~and know that there is, every now and then, a place for the sky to open up and show the sun and the beauty in the world?
