    What a wonderful surprise
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    Sounds like it's a win/win for both of you. Quilting makes for a very strong bond.

    Bless you for being a sweet Aunt that he can come to. You did a wonderful thing even though you had your doubts. I hope you two have some great times together sewing and laughing.

    I am so glad that he felt like he could reach out to you. Good therapy for him and a wonderful way to share your talents. I'm glad you have something in common.

    God bless your nephew - and you for helping him. Please thank him for me for the service he gave to our country and his role in allowing us to be free and peaceful. I think it is wonderful that he want to sew and create, shows that he is a very strong man. Have fun!

    What a beautiful story. Maybe you could post a picture when his quilt is finished.

    My heart goes out to you and I am very envious, no one in my family sews/quilts. I would love to hear my niece or nephew show an interest and especially if they asked for my guidance. Maybe someday I hope. Have fun.

    What a great thing you are doing. I'm sure this young man will appreciate your time and effort. It will certainly teach him patience.

    You have a loving heart, which will go far in helping your nephew. God Bless. Have fun quilting , tell him we're all behind him and would love to see the quilt even if it's just part way done.

    LOL we all should name our machines DR. Therapy... IT was my sanity while I was working (long story; Reader's Digest version: but someone's wife was put in jail for embezzlement and they needed her hubby off the streets!LOL so I was let go !LOL). It still is my therapy to sew when I get down about the job and not finding a new one; but I feel things happen for a reason and the reason will eventually be revealed to me one day .. LOL
    Passing this hobby onto him may so help him focus and move forward in life .. Thank you for being so kind to help him out and hope it works out for him for sure !!

    Since one can get totally lost in quilting, this will be great for him. The bonus you get is spending time with him.
