Kindness is.....

Look what I received in the mail yesterday!!! It came from Victoria from Bumble Beans Inc.. I guessed... she had received 500 blocks from kind quilters. She received 501. Woot! Woot! I won!!
Thanks Victoria!!!

Victoria needs more help from us.You can read all about her project HERE. This project is close to my heart. I don't live in the big city. I live in a rural community in Western NY.
Back in 2008, We did a presentation on the Homeless.This was for a Humanities Class. Bellow you will see a photo Hubby and I took on the "hobo trail" (this is what the teens call it). So, if you think this does not happen in your own community look closer.

I have to call on my new machine today!!!I hope she is ready for pick-up! Freddy the frame needs a new girlfriend!!! She is quite shapely! 17" of quilting space! With a quilt on her... it will be roughly 12.5"!!

If, you see this woman pictured bellow today, Wish her a Happy Birthday!!!
She had a part in teaching me to be kind because... she is my Mom.
Psst~ Don't tell her she is on my blog. LOL!!!!

I hope... I can get through Prom without tears. I am such a sap!
Have a Great Day Everyone!!!

How wonderful, congratulations on your win! Yep, we have lots of homeless in Detroit - even tent cities are springing up.

I hope you got your machine! Happy Birthday to your mum, she looks such a sweetie - Happy Mum's Day to her, and you too!
