    I Simply Could Not Wait

    I was going to give quilts to my Sunday School class on Mother's Day, but I did it last week.

    How generous and kind of you! And you know what? The "just because" gifts, those not given on a holiday, are wonderful surprises and mean every bit as much as "special day" gifts. I love to give and receive that kind, and I'm sure your Sunday School sisters were really touched. Besides, tomorrow is not guaranteed and scripture says to "encourage one another while is called Today." Well done!

    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    yes, this is so true! "just because gifts" are very special and tomorrow is not guaranteed. I'm sure it made you feel good to give and they felt good to receive.

    Beautiful quilts. So sweet of you. The smiles of each class member tells it all. They all love their quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    By the look of everybody's smiles it's easy to see the quilts are deeply appreciated. Beautiful quilts and what a wonderful gift of love.
