      You’re welcome Wendy. It is really cool to see the kids with their dolls and quilts. Makes me happy to help, even if in a small way.

    Amazing!! thank you Bernie for being the impetus for this push. Amy has elevated her endeavor as a result of all this love and sharing of skills. What a difference a little needle and thread can make. She is an angel artist with these dolls!

      You are so right. Amy inspires me. I love your sentence about the difference we can make with a little needle and thread. That was perfect!

      No problem Louise. I think the stories Amy tells me are both heart-warming and sad all at the same time. It is good to share them because we need to support those who face difficulties in life and our community is so generous in this way.

    Bernie. I’m so excited to see my quilt with the little girl. I adopted 2 kids from Russia in 1995. Thanks for the update. Love this charity sewing op.

      You are welcome and I am glad you saw the post Darlene! How exciting to hear about your kids. Were they biological siblings? How old were they when you adopted them? Take care and have a wonderful week.

      Agreed Barb. Amy is so thoughtful and shares lots of photos of the kids with their dolls and quilts. It is great because we see how much she appreciates our help. 🙂

    Few people know this….but I have been known to sneak into my sewing area and just sit and look through the quilts that people have sent. I find it very relaxing and very comforting…so I can only imagine what they mean to families who receive them.
    This quilt campaign (for lack of a better word) blew my mind. It came at a time when I needed to see the good in people and boy, you guys didn’t disappoint! Quilters are some of the most creative and generous people there are.
    Many of you have sent notes with your quilts, which I have tucked away in a special folder. I am so glad that this has touched you and moved you to “do something.” I believe that we are all called to do something to help. Know that you have touched many people, including me.

      Quilters love what they do and it’s a special reward if we can make another’s ones life happier .😃😃

      Amy, what a visual this gives me. I am glad you are enjoying all of the quilts. Somehow I suspect you will be receiving them for a long while to come. Have a great day. 🙂
