Last weekend, I made another quilted market bag. It was for my new friend Kay for her birthday, which is tomorrow.
Louie delivered it to her tonight on his way to school. She loved it and even sent me a picture of her with it, with a beautiful ‘Thank you’ email. She is the one who told me about, and let me horn in on their church quilting ministry. I am not able to attend regularly, but I have gone to quilt with them a couple times now, and they also let me work on quilt kits at home for them. It is very gratifying to help, and know they appreciate what little I can do. Everyone is so nice and caring. They prayed for me when I had surgery, and thanked God for taking such good care of me. I really wish I could sew with them each time they meet, but I just have to appreciate the times when I can, now and then.
I don’t have much family, but when I lost mine, God replaced family with so many friends, and I am so grateful! Thank you Kay, for your friendship, and Happy Birthday!
