Last week, the quest was to buy a blanket, take it to a hospital, and give it to a child in need of comfort. I actually didn’t end up doing that exactly.
My perfect picture was to put the angels from Angel Quest on a custom quilt. I ended up doing a lot of research on the possibility of putting the angel images on blankets and quilts. If anyone knows how I could pull this off economically, I’d love to hear about it. How cozy would it be to wrap yourself in a blanket with a giant Angel of Comfort on it, or a collage of several different angels?
I liked the organizations that specialized in sending quilts and warm things. One of the quotes I thought was so cool said, "A warm blanket is like a permanent hug." I ended up sending the blanket you see here to Warm Hearts – Warm Babies.
To me, being warm and cozy is such a crucial part of life . . . it makes you feel supremely loved when something or someone wraps around you. I love this Friday Quest thing because it’s giving me some structure, something to be accountable to. It’s forcing me to actually do the kind of things I want to be doing anyway, but usually have a hard time prioritizing into my life. It feels wonderful!
