St. Anthony Foundation
A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the wheel was knitting!
Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, “PULL OVER!” ”NO!” the blonde yelled back, “IT’S A SCARF!”
We’re sure she didn’t get a ticket because she was knitting for St. Anthony’s Scarving Artists who are committed to providing 2,500 hand knit scarves for our guests this Christmas. While we don’t recommend driving while knitting we would love your help this year! To knit for St. Anthony’s click on http://www.stanthonysf.org/?q=donate%2Fknit and find out how!

Anna Maria Horner, one of the most talented fabric designers in the world (her fabric is a household item in my family) is auctioning a quilt for the Queensland flood victims. The fabric is her own design, the pattern is her own design (Gathering Flowers Quilt), and so is the sewing. The bidding ends midnight today, so there is still a whole day left to go over to her blog and bid on it to help people in need. Thank you Anna Maria!
