Photobucket In November of 2012, I will celebrate my tenth year as a Linus Connection volunteer! I have spent almost all of those years at the Linus webmistress and am now on my second go as a Board Member.

I’m currently in charge of blanket packing and distribution during our monthly meetings, which simply means I make sure each facility gets what they need from the donated blankets we receive. I also write all the blog posts for our group, as well as take care of our Facebook and Twitter pages.

You will hear me talk about “Linus” a lot. When I do, I’m always referring to The Linus Connection of Central Texas, a small non-profit based right here in Austin.

My personal goal is 2 blankets a month, or 24 blankets per year.

***

In 2012, I will continue to collect Stars for Linus (see above!). In 2011, we donated 3 Stars for Linus quilts to The Linus Connection. This year, let’s try to make it 4!

Each quilt block needs to be 12″ (12 1/2″ unfinished) and made in bright colors with a light background.

You can use my free pattern or any star pattern of your choice, including Wonky Stars!

You can find my mailing address on the Stars for Linus pattern. For best results, print without scaling. If your pattern scales down, simply make the borders a little bigger and then square up to 12 1/2″!

We Are The Face of Quilting The Faces of Quilting come in all shapes, sizes, ages and skin tones.

Share your story of quilting on your own blog and post your photo in our flickr group!

Well, I guess that about sums it up! This week I’m planning a look back at 2011 as well as my 12 for 2012 post. I hope you are having a very happy new year!

Lily After Surgery

Lily is home with my sister and her hubby, and will be pampered and loved while she heals and finds some normalcy in what’s been a crazy life for a little kitten!

For anyone that missed it, Lily was adopted by my sister and her husband after she was abandoned on our parent’s property. Her leg was injured, but what we didn’t know what she had been shot. I’ve been on a mission to help my sister and her husband pay for the surgery Lily needed to save her life. Lily’s leg had shrapnel in it and was infected. She she was running a fever and her leg was amputated today to save her life. She’s on antibiotics and painkillers and short a leg, but she’s already improving, is happy, eating and being a kitten again, despite her big surgery today!

Lily After Surgery

In donations alone, we have raised $1300 to help pay Lily’s expenses!

I can’t say thank you enough. Really. THANK YOU.

Check out all the fantastic auctions going on at Love For Lily with all proceeds going to help with Lily’s medical expenses!
