    I don't know if you all know what freecycle.org is but today I got a notice of a lady that had yarn and fabric's she was wanting to give away. So I e-mailed her and I was the first to respond. She said she had lots of stuff. Any way here is the pic's of what she gave me.

    I also God was testing me because there was a Brand new Kodak easy share camera in the bottom of one of the bags. So I called the lady and all she could say was I love you. Her 2 yr. old hid the camera and she has been looking everyhwere for it. I am glad she found me instead of someone who would have kept it.

    Thank you everyone. I have been truly blessed over the last 2 days. Having had several quilters form the board give me a hand and now all this stuff. I have been trying to keep the tears of joy at bay today.

    Your a good woman. You deserve all the good things that come your way. Was nice you had a way to contact her to tell her about the camera. Have a great day and enjoy your gifts.

    God bless you richly, you were so good to call the lady about the camera. We have freecycle here where I live, and last year I was able to get strong men to carry out my wulitzer organ. I had no need for it any longer, but being elderly we had just let it set,,, now it is in a home where the youngsters are taking lessons..... It is so good to give.!!
