Yikes! Has it really been that long since I've posted?!? I'm a baaaaaaad little blogger....baaaaad and buuuuuuusy.
So just what have I been doing?
That's the graphic for my church's new blog. It didn't take much time to create, but getting the blog operational was a bit of work. Well, not so much 'work'....it was more of a thinking game.
To see real work (something I leave to the professionals), visit the blog and watch my husband, Greg, along with 41 other volunteers, build houses in a slum just across the border from El Paso. Their goal is 5 houses in 5 days. The houses are more like sheds by American standards, but to those dwelling in a shack made of palettes, they seem palatial. Note that he doesn't know you're stopping by and thinks he's writing to a closed audience.
While Greg has been preparing for construction work, another dedicated group has been making quilts for the house families plus any others needing a quilt. They made around 75 quilts since last September. These are fuctional quilts and have a scrappy kind of beauty all their own.
