When you spring clean, think of me!

Never in a MILLION years, did I think I'd be sewing, much less actually be good at it. I was always terrified of sewing machines!
Nine months ago, a van pulled out in front of us when we were on our motorcycle and my life was turned upside down. He walked away with cuts and bruises, I broke my left shoulder blade, my right shoulder, tore my rotator cuff, mild traumatic brain injury, concussion, slipped discs in my neck, tore my hip ligament.. Suddenly at 30 years old, I was on a walker and needed my kids to help dress and feed me. I laid around for 3 months feeling sorry for myself and I can no longer do this or that so why get out of bed. Then a church that was helping us, gave me a sewing machine for Christmas and I haven't gone a day since without sewing! Its truly been healing.
So enough yapping, My husband is unemployed and I can't work and we live in a very isolated area, no Walmart for an hour, no craft or fabric stores for 2 hours... I use a lot of bed sheets from thrift stores but if you have any fabric, buttons, notions etc that you no longer need, it would mean so much to me. Even bed sheets and pillow cases that are pretty and could use a new life! I can pay a little or at least for shipping. Thank you so much! Laura
