    A few months back, I tried my hand at machine quilting. It did not turn out like I had planned. I made this quilt and folded it up on my table. My brother came in and asked what I was going to do with it. I told him that I would probably give it to the local thrift shop, I wasn't sure. He picked it up and walked out with it. Later on, he came back and handed me a piece of paper. He said that was my receipt for a tax write off for a donation. When I opened it up, it read PRICELESS!
