QUILTS FOR A CAUSE by Guest Blogger Ruth McHaney Danner, Author of MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE ONE QUILT AT A TIME
By Publicity Admin
Quilts exemplify precious things: comfort through the warmth they provide; community, since they are often created by groups; and love, given the time and effort they require. In her book Making a World of Difference One Quilt at a Time, author Ruth McHaney Danner has collected 54 heartwarming stories of quilters donating their labors of love to people in need. These wonderfully inspiring stories show that every quilter who has ever wondered, “But what can I do?” can do something to reach out and help others.  

Do you have a quilt with a story? We want to see a picture! 

We are running a special  #FavoriteQuilt contest on Facebook. Enter to win one of three FREE copies of Making a World of Difference One Quilt at a Time by leaving a comment on the contest post on the Facebook post with a picture of one of your favorite quilts.

A Talk with Patrick McDonnell, coauthor of GUARDIANS OF BEING
By Samy AbulEla

Guardians of Being: Spiritual Teachings from Our Dogs and Cats pairs original words by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle with delightful illustrations by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of the acclaimed comic strip MUTTS. We hope you’ll enjoy this interview with Patrick about his collaboration with Eckhart, his inspiration, and the importance of connecting with animals.

How did Guardians of Being come to be?

This book is a collaboration of Eckhart’s teachings and my MUTTS cartoon illustrations. As does all of Eckhart’s work, Guardians of Being teaches us about finding inner peace by living in the now, the transformation of our consciousness, and the arising of a more enlightened humanity. The primary signposts in this book are all of nature and, in particular, our beloved dogs and cats.(READ MORE)

"Creating Time" by guest blogger Marney Makridakis
By Samy AbulEla

Pay attention to the conversations of people around you, and notice how often the subject of time comes up:

“I’m fine, just crazy busy . . . ”
“I just don’t know when I can find the time . . . ”
“I can’t really talk now — I’m running late . . . ”

People used to be tied to things like families, communities, rituals, worship, curiosity, and beauty. Now we are tied to schedules, watches, date books, computers, and keeping up with the latest gadgets that start with i. It seems like time is going by faster than ever these days, and we’re all exhaustively trying to find, chase, save, and manage time.
