When I did my last posting, I was feeling down for the holiday. And really concerned for my Mom. She was just so upset about my brother, and my sister. Well anyway, my friend Kathy saw my post and she had an idea. What if she asked all the ladies at HGTV to send my Mom a card, chocolate, or something to cheer her up for the holidays.
WELL, let me tell you, when Kathy emailed me and asked me what I thought of the idea, I thought it would be great! And since my Mom is a quilter, and we are asking quilters to do this, why not just ask for a 12.5 piece of fabric added to the cards.
She will get a great quilt out of it, and she will not feel all alone.
Kathy posted the request on the HGTV quilting board, and told them to PM me for my Moms address!!! OMG, that was on Wednesday night! Since then we have had over 85 requests for her address. She is going to be flipping out in just a few days, as some have already mailed out today. One of the ladies told me she just joined the board, and had missed out on being a Secret Sister, or in the Christmas exchanges, so she was adopting my Mom for Christmas this year and sending her a package!
The best thing is I feel better already knowing how good this is going to make my Mom feel! And knowing, what I have known for a long time, QUILTERS are the BEST!!
