Daily Kos Community Quilts Project

Community Quilts are a way of sharing care, compassion and support for community members who are facing illness or other hardships.

This is an unusual situation for a community quilt.  BfitzinAR is no longer part of the Daily Kos community and won’t be posting here tonight.  However, before it was determined that she would no longer be a member, my sister and I had proposed a community quilt for her, to acknowledge all her good works for Kossacks, and she graciously accepted — with the proviso that quilts for serious illness would come first.  Given that so many people are missing bfitz, it seemed to us that it would be a very healing thing for everyone if the community could begin the message giving part of bfitz’s

  3. November is the hardest month for my sister and me — a “perfect storm” of bills (including a hefty, quarterly water bill) plus property tax which took an upward jump this year.

    We still need to raise $4140  $3695 $2947 $2123  over the next week — which will keep us in our home and workshop (affectionately known as Catnip Manor) for another year.  All things considered, it’s not much to ensure housing and workspace for us for a year — but it’s an awful lot if you don’t have it (and we don’t at this time).
