Operation Wood Hollow

It has been a busy week around here, and not a whole lot of it has been sewing!

We finally got word that my in-laws closed on the house they are buying (actually, we heard that 2 weeks ago). This is a super big deal for us, because they aren’t actually ready to MOVE to this new house, but wanted to get a good deal before the market shot up too far again. So, they want us to rent it from them for the next couple years while we are in grad school.

EEEEEE!! I get to move into a HOUSE! With room for my kids to run around!!

We don’t really MOVE move for another month, but I already have a stack of boxes packed and ready to go :) I’m a bit excited.

On to my next point. One of my greatest fears is having my house burn down(or apartment…surrounded by smokers…). So, when I linked to this post about Operation Wood Hollow, my heart just ached for all these families who have lost their homes, and all those that might still. I immediately went through a mental inventory of my quilts and decided which one was getting pulled from my shop and sent to someone in need.

I love this quilty-bloggy community that immediately reaches out to those in need. It really is an amazing thing, and I am so glad to be a part of it!

And I am sure Operation Wood Hollow would love more donations if you are interested and able! Julie also has more info in other posts, so if you click to her home page, you can see more.
