Round em Up! Head em Out! Move em On! Rawhide!!!

Sorry - I got a little carried away there.

I am busy this week finishing my challenge quilt for the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild.  And since I cannot show you pictures I give you a little list of things that are inspiring me and touching my heart this week.

Why Our Parents Put Us to Shame - this one really strikes a chord about how I want to live with my children

Geography for Children and a New Map - Geography is NOT my strong suit - this will help.

Crumbs Scraps and Strings - Doesn't this look like tons of fun?  I can't wait to try it with some of my new sewing buddies.

Action Kivu Wrap Up - Congrats to Alissa for meeting her fundraising goal.  Thanks to all who helped and Pryers for all the women and children this money will provide for.  What's your favorite Grass Roots charity - please leave me a link.

Living the Millionaire Life - This is what life is really about and theirs is such and interesting and methodical approach.

There's my weekly round up.  It's been quilting quilting quilting on the Kona challenge project and lots of blog reading for distraction.  I should finish up quilting and binding today just in time for the challenge deadline.  What's inspiring you this week?  Leave me links in the comments so I can check them out.

I'll keep you posted!

Give: It Feels SEW Good...

Please check out what Handmade by Alissa is doing this week for KIVU.  Action KIVU has such a great ideal at it's core and really speaks to crafters and sewists and women such as myself.  Please check them out and give what you can.

Alissa has many prize offerings for different gift levels, but that is HARDLY the point.  Even a little money (by western standards) makes a BIG difference.  Check them out and follow your heart.  Let's run that gift thermometer right off the charts!

I'll keep you posted!
