    Smile Santa Claus came yesterday

    I am so excited!!!! I received 8 large garbage bags yesterday. YES...Yes... Yes...
    It was all fabric. I got a call and was asked do you need a little fabric. I said yes of course. Well It arrived. I am a little depressed today because i had to come to work and could not play in the fabric.
    I called my other half and told him what I got and he said well there goes the bedroom again. I usually only buy what I need to make a project. I had a small statch. Now I have lots.
    I called a few people and asked if after the holidays they would like to come over and have a few lessons we could. They have been waiting for me to do this. I live in the middle of no wheres and the post offices people know me well. She wants to start sewing. Especially since she has seen all the mini doll quilts I have received and mailed out.
    I wanted to thank all of you on here for being so nice and kind and sharing with your knowledge.
    I have learned a lot on here and I plan to share the wealth.
    Have a great day everyone. I am counting the minutes till I get home and get started washing and folding my new best friends (fabric).
    Kindergarden stayed with me, I still color, paint, draw and cut things up.

    if your friends ever want to make quilts for the dolls I make and give away to special needs kids, please think of me. Most of my dolls go out to kids with cancer, otherwise other 'disasters' that make life more difficult. Usually the kids are age 2 to 8 and both boys and girls. The boys are 28 inches tall and the girls are 24 tall. They are at least 18 inches across the arm width. If you know of a child in need, I'll get a doll sent their way. It takes 12 hours to complete a girl doll. (Girls are topsy turvy)Just send a PM and let me know. If you want a picture of the dolls I have posted them under dolls 118 to 123 in the forum.
