IBOL and Sew, Mama, Sew!

Mr. Incredible’s Iraqi Bundles of Love project is growing in leaps and bounds! I want to thank everyone who has so generously mailed bundles to him (he’s already received at least 80!), blogged about the project, and shared information with your friends and quilting guilds. My hubby was a little concerned that there might be some people out there who want to help but don’t have a stash of fabric, thread or yarn from which to create a bundle. Never fear, the generous people at Sew Mama Sew* have 150 fantastic bundles all ready for you! All you need to do is hot-foot it to their online shop, plunk down the minimal cost of $15, and they will mail a fantastic bundle with enough fabric and notions to make a substantial project directly to Mr. IBOL Guy.

*Let’s hear it for Kristin power!

  1. dear kristen,
    I am one of those devoted ‘blog-ghost followers’…..I read you
    every day. Just wanted to thank you for doing the ‘bundles’ and especially for the link so that folks who don’t sew like me can give thru the ‘sew mamas’……so add me to the count!!
    Kindest regards,Missy from the bayou

  2. Kristin, I think you might be the LUCKIEST quilter on the planet. Your husband loves fabric, understands what it can do and has excellent manners.

    In today’s mail, I got a nice handwritten note from him thanking me for the bundles I sent and the laughs from my customs form humor. My daughter was THRILLED that we got a letter from a foreign country and screeched when I told her it was a letter from IBOL guy – like a note from a rock star almost. She sits with me every evening and listens to what Art has been up to that day. It has really helped her understand that soldiers are people, before they are fighters, and that they can do such good! He’s an inspiration and you and your daughter should be bursting with pride.

    Please tell Art’s mom she did good with that boy!

  3. Cross your fingers that we can get this project on the air here in Tucson. It’s “in consideration” now.

    What a fantastic family you have Kristin.
