I'm busy getting ready for our vacation to FL but did take time out to go to my Seaside Applique guild today. Each January, the meeting focuses on doing charity projects. This year, we made fleece shawls to be donated to a dialysis unit. We mad 20 shawls today. We had an assembly line type of operation with cutters, sewers, and "fringers." Often times, dialysis patients get cold during their treatmets. These shawls will be given to patients who do not bring blankets or covers with them.  This donation had a special meeting for me as about 30 years ago, my mother died of kidney disease had many dialysis sessions her last couple of years. It is amazing how the treatments have improved over the years but those who must have dialysis still have quite a struggle. These pictures show members of the guild.
