    Quilting Friends Everywhere: Our dear friend - a sometimes quick witted nemisis, Trupeach, really needs our encouraging words. As you all know (I think) her daughter was seriously injured last summer, when a huge rock was thrown into the taxi cab she was riding in. It happened in Ohio.

    I don't feel comfortable explaining in detail, but want all of you to know she needs to know how much we love and care for her. I think it might be nice to send her a simple square of fabric, perhaps 5 or 6 inches. She told me she has always wanted a quilt that was just blue and white. It is also close to valentine's day. If you need her address, pm me or ask on this thread and I'll pm you back.

    You all have come through for me so many times, I just know you will want to help her get through the next few days and weeks as she takes care of her daughter. Thanks for caring so much about so many. Gwyn

    I have a squishy to send to Peachy, that I had to wait for fixed income check to be able to send. It's here now.
    Trupeach has really been through quite an ordeal, and has really struggled to stay strong through it all.
    We are not talking a beautiful daughter that just needs to heal, we are talking a tragedy that won't completely go away. A mom's heartbreak, y'all.
    I'll see if I have any blue and whites to add to it, too, Gwynn. Your a thoughtful friend, and understanding. :-D

    Sent you a PM. I'll play.

    Edit: Would anyone else be interested in sending a 12" finished blue/white block to Trupeach? I'd do that.

    Oh my goodness. Several of you have asked about sending a quilt block. This would be great. How about we stick to 12.5" and just blue and white. Don't worry about which color blue, she thinks blue is just blue and will love all of it. I don't have time to coordinate a quilt, so just send her the blocks...and only if you want too.

    Peachy just needs our love and support...

    If I missed sending you the address, pm me. I'll get them all sooner or later. If you get it twice, sorry. Just trying to not leave anyone out. Gwyn

    I sent a PM too, and received an answer. Gwyn, thanks so much. I wasn't aware of this; I think it happened before I joined. I can't send a block right now, but I'll definitely send some blue and/or white squares.
