    What a blessing and inspiration to so many people to watch this blind quilter! It also has given me an encouragement boost to keep going with my quilting - which I get frustrated with at times. I have had two laser surgeries and an injection of a steriod in my eye due to vision loss - but I am thankful that with my glasses I can see 20/20. To do close work, it takes me longer due to the vision loss - but I can see and am grateful. The quilts Diane made are just beautiful and is quite a story.

    she was our guest speaker at our last guild meeting, she is a wonderful speaker and her work is good. If any guilds or churches need a speaker, she would be a good to have. A very happy lady and fun to be around.

    So glad a friend took the time to help her learn how to quilt. Her friend was an angel sent to help her fulfill her life doing things for others. What beautiful work. God bless her.
