"Cyndiofthevortex" and I have been private messaging a lot and we even spoke on the phone! I cannot start a group at this time as I am moving by the end of June. ...and I did not feel right about asking anyone else to take this on - I may have put the cart before the horse so to speak, so this is the story.....Cyndi's daughter has 8 foster children total (at this time) Cyndi mentioned 2 of them in a post yesterday and my heart went out to the one she calls Kayla. (She does not use their real names for privacy) I will be making a special quilt for "Kayla" - I have some material and an idea already in mind - "Lily" is her little 3 year old sister. Also, a quilt I have been working on will go to a 12 year old girl, "Tracey" I have been playing with my flying geese ruler (love it!) and putting together a black/red/white quilt, so that will be perfect for her. So that leaves 6 other children at this time. Cyndi has been making quilts for these sweet kids as they come and go single handedly. I think both Cyndi and her daughter are exceptional people and I can hardly wait to get these 2 quilts done and sent to her - I will have to hurry as DD will be breathing down my neck to get my stuff packed up!
This brings me to all the wonderful people on this forum who have already said they would do 2 blocks (thinking there were only 2 girls) To you I say THANK YOU SO MUCH for jumping right in!!! My thought now is IF anyone would like to just do a quilt and send it to Cyndi (I have her mailing address) - or if anyone has any other ideas, please private message me and let me know your thoughts. Cyndi and I are very excited about the response so far and looking forward to a Great Adventure!!!
