the 70273 project badge

In some ways it seems like I launched The 70273 Project  more than six weeks ago, in other ways, it seems like six minutes or six hours since I launched. From the very start, the response has been phenomenal. So much love has been stitched into the 83 blocks have I’ve received so far. I can feel it when I open the envelopes. I can feel it when I hold the blocks in my hands. I can scarce imagine how it will feel standing in the presence of these quilts.

Not too much to report this week because I’ve been out of pocket the entire week, staying at the side of Nancy, my disabled sister-in-law who’s been in the hospital. I can, however, tell you that I’ve added a translator to the blog – something I hadn’t thought of until a conversation with Chloe Grice who’d translated something into French to help get the word out in her neck of the world.

Terri Belford interviewed me for her Inspired Entrepreneurs series.  (Thank you for having me, Terri.)

I continue to catalogue the blocks and keep meticulous records.

Several more people have offered to piece and/or quilt. (Thank you.)

There are now 51 countries registered.

And there are all sorts of good things stirring behind the scenes.


To keep your finger on the pulse:
