There it is...

Found my Mojo!

If you don't know about Margaret's Hope Chest yet, I would love it if you popped over there to see what the project is about.

A mother/daughter team started this group after the grandmother was killed during a robbery.  They make and collect quilts for kids who have a parent in prison.  I can't tell you how much destruction on a child's self esteem there is when one parent is in prison.  I teach high school and have seen first hand how the kids feel they are the ones who committed the crime.

If you have some time and extra fabric, they are collecting quilt blocks to be made into quilts.  You can always send them a quilt top or finished quilt too.

Whenever I start to feel down and discouraged, making a quilt for this group really picks me up!
