In all walks of life I meet amazing people!

This is Emily, she is hiding behind one of her quilts, she is the cute one in the cowboy hat. I have done a few quilts for Emily, one you may remember as the "Bikini Quilt." I was talking to her one day and mentioned that I was short a few quilts for the Romania Trip and that's all I had to say because during the last couple weeks she has put together and had 11 quilts finished for me to take to Romania. What an amazing person. She is so great, so I just wanted to thank her for all she has done. We are at our goal of 40 quilts and I believe we will have a few more, I will give a final count when I am all packed on Saturday.

Another amazing person, and someone who has gone over and beyond the call of duty is Kelly of I Have a Notion. She put together a yard sale and gave all the proceeds to our charity, she raised over $500.00 dollars. I can't thank her enough and can't wait to help the children in the orphanage.

We have received several quilts from a lot of you, thank you so much. I hope you all know how much this means to Clint and me, we couldn't have met our goals for the orphanage without your help. So thank you so much.

I am still working on the magazine quilt, I wish I could show you, but it will have to wait. One more thing, if you have been our friend on Facebook, we re-did our page with more pictures and we will be doing live giveaways and stuff like that, so go and be our friend by clicking on the link at the left, and if you have been our friend already, you will need to request to be our friend again (sorry about that).

Have a wonderful and safe trip! All will be well at home, and the kids will be fine I'm sure. When I used to leave my young family, I was the one who was the most emotional about it. The kids did great!
