    Great story... and you are a great aunt! Sounds like this young man is reaching out and you were there to grab ahold of him.

    This is wonderful. I have to tell you that as I was reading this it put a smile on my face. I can see where this will keep his mind from getting bored. Have fun.

    How sweet.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Wow! Wish my son would come up with something like that to do to help with his PTSD. Doing something together like that will give him opportunity to share his feelings with you in ways that wouldn't happen if you are sitting face to face with nothing else to do. Blessings to you as you help him in more ways than one!

    I suffer from the same thing and quilting and going to class has been the best therapy, even my therapist says how good it has been for me so Good for You for helping him, this will be so good for him and will make you happy for helping him. I wish you both the very best.

    Giving me goosebumps! I hope that becomes a lasting hobby for him! So good that he had a quilter in the family to call on.

    What a wonderful surprise, first that he wants to start quilting and that he came to his aunt to help him. That says volumes for you and your relationship with him. We all need outlets for our stress of every day living, let alone what he has been through, what better way to work through our problems.

    Hopefully as he is working with various tees, he will be able to abolish some of the demons. Best wishes for what will be a great bonding for both of you.

    I think quilting will be very relaxing for your nephew. That should help him to deal with his PTSD. Enjoy your time spent with your nephew. Please post a picture of his first quilt.

    This sounds like a win/win situation. Quilting is such good therapy! Ask me how I know. You must be a special aunt that he would want to do this with. Good on you for being there for him. Tshirt quilts are fun to make. Just don't forget the fusible interfacing, lol. Have a fun day.
