    Ten dolls are in the arms of a Very sick N.C. child tonight

    I received a note this evening from the lady who delivered ten dolls for me. Here is what she had to say. This took place in a hospital setting today. If the lady wants to let you know who she is, I'll let her talk more about it. Below is a copy of the e-mail she sent me. The kids are 6 to 9 years of age. Four are boys. As to who the quilter is:
    (Left name out...she is a quilter from the forum and reads to a group of kids. Of these ten, nine have cancer and one has uncontrolled diabetes)

    OMG they loved the dolls. It was a huge success and nurses from other floors came to see as well.

    The supervisor is suppose to call you tomorrow or friday. The parents were not comfortable at this time with
    pictures and I told them that was ok. So not sure when she will call but her name is Beverly. I never seen so many smile"s on the kids faces. They truely were happy. I gave them all the birth certificates and story. I actually read the story to them along with a christmas story. Thank you for making these wonderful children happy. It was very sweet of you.
    I will be out of town the next few days. Will try to check e-mails.
    Thanks again
    Huge Hugs


    MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEARS!

    Remember you are a wonderful person and what you do for children.
    God Bless You!

    How much love and car you have put into all those beautiful dolls. I can imagine how happy they were and how they will take them everywhere with them. God has given you a wonderful talent god bless you and the children who receive them.

    May God richly bless you for all the work you put into these. I know it was a blessing to you to know that you, for a moment, gave them much joy and could take away some of the pain. Blessings to you.

    What a great idea! I particularly like the boy dolls because people often forget that little boys could use the comfort of a doll too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
