    Wildyard - you are a very special person and the world is a better place because of your presence in it.

    Wildyard, you truly have a warm and loving heart! Makes me cry with joy and is a good reminder to me that this world still has such caring people. This board is so wonderful...I can't tell you how many times I have had tears when reading.

    Akrogirl, My prayers are with you as you fight this. Lots of love.

    Well, I just asked akrogirl for her address, told her I had some fabric with horses I couldn't really use and wanted to send it to her. Giggles....
    I told her in a note with the quilt, the reason I couldn't use it anymore was because I had sewed it all together into a quilt for her.
    It was a blessing to me all the fun I had making this quilt and giving it as a surprise.

    Yes that sounds like a lot of the quilters I know, they never make any for themselves but selflessly give them all away.

    What a wonderful gift Wildyard. You are an angel here on Earth. May the God's love through the special quilt work with the chemo to heal your body. Blessings and love to you and your special "ANGEL" Thanks so much from all of us Wildyard even though we had no part in your gifting, you shared with all of us through your special act of kindness.

    Oh how precious! I have tears in my eyes! Prayers to you during your recovery. You can beat this! God will take care of you. I click every day for free mammograms. Just go to their site and start clicking. They send me a daily reminder. The sponsors pay so much for each click.

    Thanks - minimal side effects so far, so I hope that continues :-)

    Congratulations on being a survivor yourself - long may that continue.

    I will pray for you. I pray that your chemo is successful. Wildyard you are so sweet and "sneaky". I have tried out several Boards for various topics (including other quilting ones) but neveral stay around long usually because their seems to be a lot of back biting and arguing. One of the reasons I love this board so much and spend so much time on here is because of the way everyone treats one another. Even though we may never meet each other, there is a special bond between each other.
