Remember this quilt?
This was a special project I did, where I went to work with at risk teenagers at 5 different school in the NYC area. Each teen worked on a square that represented to them "What is SAFE."
It was very hard on the heart strings to hear some of the stories. Some were full of hope and some had a hard time thinking of anything or anyplace. But we all had FUN working on the project together.
The kids got to draw, add fabric, do some hand sewing, and/or also learn a bit of embroidery to bring their block alive. It was a super loving and special, life enriching experience, and I loved every moment working on it.
I'm so excited...
This quilt will be given to it's new owners. (It's a surprise!!! I can't say yet!)
Let me just say they are an amazing couple who have put together a program that has helped many kids, empowering them to be leaders while providing a safe place for them to grow. How great is that?
The event was to happen exactly when the Sandy came ripping through NYC... It was delayed until tonight.
