The stories from the sewing room of a Southern Belle
Wednesday, May 4, 2011
Last night my guild had a sew in for Journey of Hope. We make quilts for children with cancer. Everyone brought orphan blocks and nine patch blocks This quilt on my design wall is a baseball quilt top for a boy. The lady that hands out the quilts told a story about a boy about 10 years old and we didn't have a quilt big enough for him. It broke my heart that he didn't get a quilt. I was making this baseball quilt for my grandson Dawson. I ask him if I could donate it to a child with cancer. With a very concerned look n his face he said " Sure Nana please do " I was so proud oh him. So I hope to get it pinned and quilted as soon as I can. We often forget that not only small children need a quilt. It makes me happy that quilts make anyone comforted and loved.

My real sruggle in live is the pain I suffer everyday from the RA. I take one day at a time or stitch by stitch. But any day in the sewing room is a good day. Fabric makes me happy.
