After we had ended our meetings and turned off our computers last night, a bunch of us had ourselves an old-fashioned quilting bee. Using 117 skeins of beautiful donated Purl yarn, Martha Stewart employees had already knitted 60 squares. Our job was to sew the squares together, creating a colorful and cozy blanket. Our labor of love will be donated to an organization called Women in Need, which will give it to a family that is moving out of a homeless shelter and into their new home. Check out the big needles that we used to sew the seams together!
All the squares laid out, ready to be sewn together.

Here’s my square -- almost done!
