You may have noticed a new button in the bottom right hand column of my blog. It's promoting a Stockings for Kids drive, similar to my local quilt guild's Santa Sock project. The stockings are handmade and donated, then filled with small Christmas gifts for children. Lyanna at Purple Panda Quilts is spearheading the drive to collect 50 stockings, approximately 11" x 17", before December 1, 2011.
Those who donate a stocking by December 1, 2011, and post a photo to the Purple Panda Quilts Flickr Group will be eligible for some great prizes, including a $50.00 gift certificate from The Fat Quarter Shop, an incredible online fabric store.

I have my pattern printed, but it may be after Halloween before I get mine finished and posted. Things are still a little batty here, even with the long weekend (for which I am VERY grateful!). But when (not if) my stocking is finished, you, my loyal readers, will be among the first to know.
