Quilting for a Cause

Okay, so I've never actually made a quilt before. That being said, a much nicer, more talented person than I is making quilts for the fire victims in Australia and all she asks is that people make some quilt squares and then send them to her. She and her quilting guild will do all the hard parts, like the actual quilting and binding. She is an army wife doing good deeds. What could be better than that? So, this is my first attempt at a quilt square. I followed the directions for the wonky star posted on the site. Leave it to me to be too anal to have my star come out wonky looking. I'm going to try to do a few more now that the kids are in bed. Because if quilting for a cause while watching Lost isn't a good excuse for not cleaning the house, I don't know what is.

Oh, and my lovely, just-turned-six daughter decided to empty her piggy bank and send all her money to an animal shelter that cares for the koalas, joeys and other displaced animals.

Some Dinner Party

I'm apparently too lazy to keep up with my published ramblings. To make up for my laziness, I'm offering up this example of my daughter's awesomeness.
