    When someone is grieving we're always afraid of 'upsetting' them, or making them cry, but this is part of the grieving process. (I'm not suggesting anyone should do anything to deliberately upset someone in order to bring on this process!) By giving her cat fabric, this recognises the fact that you read her story and know she likes cats - IMHO.
    Thanks, Knitette! I think i'm going to make her a kitty cat scrap bag and pull some purples from my stash for her.

    Thank you for letting us know about Jill's situation. I want to share some of the generous abundance I received and actually just wrote to her to ask about the cat fabric. If I hear back, I'll let you know the response.

I don't know Jill, but I am going to send a small package of things to rebuild her stash.

    My question is this. I am going to make her a scrap bag from my favorite pattern, some pins, and pull some fabric from my stash (i've been told she likes purple) I was told she had a dog and two cats, do you think it is too soon for cat fabric? Should I just make a purple one? I'm not sure and would value any opinions. Thanks.

    What a tragedy she has endured. Just sent a PM so I can send her a package, too. I have dog and cat fabrics I could send, but will wait to see if K gets a response. My DH is ALWAYS nagging me about my iron being left on, and I keep telling him it has an auto shut off, and is just asleep, waiting for me to wake it up.

    To my SP....
    Your package is ready, the weather is just NOT cooperating! Dug out of 30 inches of snow this weekend, and tomorrow we are in for some delightful freezing rain...happy, happy, joy, joy! So in the mail on Tuesday.
    Favorite colors yellow and blue!
    Blessed Be

    Well, my SP didn't post a photo of her pkg, so I thought I would for her. I asked if she wanted me to, but got no reply, so here it is-minus the Chaco refill I picked up at my LQS on the way to the PO. I am glad I took a pic before sending it.Name:  image.jpg

    My 2nd SP's has also been delivered but haven't heard anything from her yet. Waiting for mine to make there way here. May take awhile with all the snow everyone has been getting. Corrections, that some of us are getting. Wish I had the nice sunshine.
