Subject: THANK YOU to the Sterling Stitchers !!!!!!!

Pixie; The Sterling Stitchers are AWSOME.  Ten heavy quilts for the sexually abused girls at Live Oak. Seven quilts for the boys at Live Oak. And, five table topper quilts (or decoration quilts) for the Cottage parents at Live Oak. (Total value, per your guidelines = $3,554.40 = 5c per sq. in.) We think that you greatly undervalue your items considering all the time and love that you ladies put into each and every masterpiece. Each one is beautiful and will probably stay with each child forever. Our Friends Group tries to touch these at-risk kids and the staff, with little acts of love and encouragement, but what you Sterling Stitchers have done on numerous occasions, goes above and beyond. Can you imagine what a child feels when they receive one of your hand-made gifts, and the expression on their faces and warmth in their hearts … because many have never had anything at home that was their very own, and only theirs. May that satisfaction help lift each of the Sterling Stitchers into the Christmas season. And thank you Pixie for continuing to coordinate your group with me and the “Friends”.

Skip & Carol Bryan - coordinators. The Friends Group in The Villages,FL

Puzzle Block Quilt Challenge Participants...all quilts were made of the same block but varied fabric/color selections made them all so different.
Gorgeous! (Just too many to post.)
