HST's For Haiti and Honduras Project Update



Hello friends! I don't know about you but my February is flying by-so filled with parenting, teaching, quilting, cooking and cleaning.  It seems every time I come up for breath to write here at least a week has gone by!
Seeing as it is February 23 today, I wanted to give an update on our HST collection.  I am very grateful for every donation we have received.  When I started this project on the 1st of January I didn't have a goal in mind--because that would have been my goal--I start projects in areas that God leads us toward and then wait as HE calls people to serve.  That is why I love my job with Margaret's Hope Chest--I feel absolutely no pressure--just joyful service. 
And so I wanted to thank the following people for sending HST's over the past few weeks: {remember that my mail runs very slow (takes about 2 weeks to get to me after you send it) and we have missed a few deliveries over the past week due to airline issues}
Britt, Maureen, Lynn, Ros, Carol, Anita, Joan, Amber, Sharon, Sherry, and Cathy.
I have heard from these ladies that they have enjoyed making these blocks and like me, they consider it joyful service.

We are still accepting HST's--I just noticed that Amanda Jean put a link up on her blog about the project and I wanted any readers coming from that link to know that HST's for Haiti and Honduras can be sent through the end of the month.  
Here is the post that describes the project details.
And come back tomorrow because I have something pretty awesome to show you!

I am so happy to help. It is a good way to use up some bits of fabrics. In fact I have another envelope here to send to you today!

I'm delighted to find your blog, and think your goals are wonderful. While I can't participate in the current project, I'm really looking forward to joining in on future ones. Thanks for the opportunity to be of service!

I just came over from Amanda Jean's Blog and am planning on making some tonight and will mail this weekend. I am sure I can whip up some for you. I look forward to following your blog and sewing with a purpose! Your work is very inspiring. Thanks.

I learned about the HST for Haiti and Honduras from Amanda Jean's Blog. What a great cause. This evening I am going to look through my stash and whip up some blocks and get them out this weekend. Thanks for the opportunity to help. Peace be with you.....

I'm popping a few HST's in the mail today. I'm here in VA though, so you should get it in a day or two!

Small package out to you today. If I leave the computer now, another will go tomorrow.

It's March 6, and i just saw your request for HSTs. I made 16 in just a few minutes and will mail them off. Thanks for an easy way to participate. (I am not ironing these, as I think they may travel better in the still-folded position.)
