Now there are Pootie Pads for Pooches, too! These pads have soothing organic lavender and thyme quilted in and ore made of cotton fabric, Dream Puff, polyester batting. These are perfect for lining a bed or crate or for protecting the sofa from your four-legged friends fur. If your dog is suffering from anxiety or stress, the aroma of these herbs may help calm him or her.
This year, rather than coinciding with a Netroots Nation conference, we delivered on March 10, 2016 to the hospital local to me. As it turns out, the timing was good. We were told that March can be a thinner time for gifts of comfort items to the VA so our gifts will be immediately useful.
The quilts may be used by patients in the hospital or in hospice. The Chief of Volunteers, Shaun Benson, showed us the labels that are stitched onto quilts used in hospice — they tell the recipient that the quilt was made for them with love. Once the veteran in hospice has passed away, the quilt is given to the family as a memento. It goes without saying that these gifts are greatly treasured.
Small "play" size Pootie Pads. They are 8" x 4.5".
Cats find that Play size Pootie Pads are perfect for tossing, rabbit kicking and carrying around. They also like to inhale the catnip scent of these small pads at nap time. Sold in sets of four so you can put them around the house or give some as gifts.
Four for $35 plus shipping. Click Here To Order!
How about a lap throw quilt filled with organic lavender flowers, sprinkled in the batting (think of it as a Pootie Pad for People)? For those who find the scent of lavender soothing and healing, these are heavenly. Cost is $175 plus shipping.
Winglion is the home of the Community Quilt Project where we stitch together loving thoughts of friends for those facing illness or other hardship, and of Pootie Pads, small quilts filled with organic herbs to pamper your pet with soothing scents. We celebrate the connection of people to each other and with the four-legged creatures with whom we share our homes. At Winglion, there is love and warmth in every quilt we make.
You, the community, support our work. Your help provides us with materials and supports our hours of work on each quilt project. We are thankful that you keep our needles quilting!

Last week Aji wrote a deeply-felt and compelling diary on behalf of two of our most beloved community members, Sara R and winglion (Ann), who are the creators of the Community Quilt project on Daily Kos. That diary did its job; the original quilt sisters have survived their immediate financial crisis.
