4. What a lovely story.

I have so many unfinished craft kits and one quilt. So kind of people to take an interest in this woman’s life work.

5. what a Wonderful Story, So many people coming together to finish the quilt.

Once the embroidery work is done and the blocks are sewn together, there should be a giant quilting bee to quilt the top. Wish I could take part in the fun.
