    This is more of a thank you... this group is so great !!! I asked last night for some help here for a young girl who wants to sew and her family cannot afford the machine and extras for her to do it. I asked my personal at home quilt group if they would help and one lady donated a sewing machine, cutting mat, rotary scissors, needles, thread, and fabric to make up three kits. Last night some of you donated books and pattern and gift certificates to joanns. What a blessing it will be for her tomorrow when she gets this amazing surprise. Dana is 13.. and this summer will be productive, fun and enjoying for her !! I live across the street from her and will help her as needed and also bring her to our Quilts of Valor group to help sew for military. ( her step dad is a marine ) so I know she will want to help contribute this way as well. Together we are making an incredible impact on a young girls life..so positively. Thank you for helping me do that.

    I don't find that true at all.... many people do not care to help others. I am just grateful for those who do :):).. and am always blessed by helping anyone anytime anyplace.
