    She's so cute, I love your scissors too. Have fun looking for stuff to sew. Hey maybe take an old pair of pants and make them shorts or something.

    Do you have stash yet?

    I actually do have a small one. I have been hand piecing and quilting for about a year. I have actually had some amazing support from board members here. My budget has very tight the last couple years, I'm paying off student loans, still new in my career, and trying to help my sick mom make ends meet. I have had so so much support, in fabric and supply donations, advice and tips, patterns and prayers, as well as moral support from the folks here on the board.

    I know it sounds silly, but it kinda reinforces my faith in humanity.

    Thank you Quilting Board!
