Iraqi Bundles of Love (IBOL), originally uploaded by jenib320.
I was getting frustrated this afternoon while quilting my Castle Peeps quilt. The horizontal lines were causing puckers. I decided to step away and take a break. I got online and looked through my inbox. I found an email with the address for sending packages for the IBOL effort. I hadn't planned on putting my package together until tomorrow but decided I might as well go a head and get started.

I went through my stash and pulled out fabrics, buttons, trims, and needles, slowly filling up the box. By the time I was finished I felt so much better. Instead of being frustrated about my lack of perfect quilting skills, I should simply be thankful that I have a sewing machine and a quilt filled with beautiful fabrics to quilt!

If you can, please consider creating your own package. If you're interested, here is info on what to send and how to package it.

You can read more about the effort here. Sew, Mama, Sew has bundles that you can purchase if you can't build your own package. :)
