Here's a thought.... Warning - this is a blond thought. If you don't have the constitution for it stop reading now.
Sadly, as of today it doesn't sounds as though the massive oil leak in the gulf has been stopped. Even when it finally does, there is so much oil to be cleaned up. What a horrible mess, what a terrible catastrophe. My heart goes out to everyone being directly affected with the loss of their jobs and livelihood and of course the devastation to the wildlife and the environment. Very sad indeed and a long term problem besides.
How much quilt batting do you think it would take to soak up all that oil???
If we all pooled our scraps of batting I bet there would be a bunch of it!
Don't say I didn't warn you!
