Making a Difference

Jessica got me hooked on a crafting blog a while back and I’ve been reading it and several others like it. It’s fun to see what other people are making and what’s out there. Several of the blogs I read are European and there’s even one from Australia so it’s always interesting to see what’s trendy elsewhere and what craft is popular where.

Whipup.net is the one that Jessica originally showed me and they have just completed a couple of posts on teaching prisoners in Britain to quilt. I found it both interesting to see how people are using their crafting abilities to make people’s lives better and incredibly moving to hear the prisoners talk about their new skills.
