Off the Wall Fridays and Project Linus

With the Christmas frenzy engulfing so many, I am quietly enjoying making some donation quilts for Project Linus which provides quilts to children in need.  And now, the news filters through that there is a tragedy unfolding at a Connecticut elementary school. How can we possibly make enough quilts to comfort so many children in need?  Just keep sewing.  This set of 3 or 4 is designed for young boys so if you look closely – double click, you will see some pirates!  Merry, merry to all, but keep those families in need in your prayers.
