    I went to mail my Quilts For Kids and my doll swap quilt today and the postwoman asked if I had made them. Of course I told her that I did. She asked if they where for a family member and that they were beautiful. I told her that they were for children that were in hospitals. So she gave me my boxes to package them up. So I did. When I went back to pay for them to be mailed she said the people that were in line payed for them to be mailed both packages. What a nice surprise.
