A Gift

I have so much to share with you that I need more than one posting. This has been an eventful time, but I haven't had time to share it with you here until now.

Our guild's friends Donna Haggard and Sandy Van De Putte have been busy making magic. You might remember Donna and Sandy's beautiful gift to our guild of a hand-made quilt a while back. Donna is a master-quilter and talented at hand-sewing; Sandy is a gifted teacher and quilter herself. Together, they make a fabulous team.

Donna's adult daughter had the same kind of cancer that Katie had. It manifested differently, but the outcome was the same. After Donna & Sandy donated a quilt to us in memory of Donna's daughter, Donna herself was diagnosed with cancer. Unbelievable, but true.

In the midst of her treatment, dear Donna crocheted blankets for our guild. When she finished her treatment, she and Sandy got together and made magic happen. They created a quilt which won BEST OF CATEGORY at the KITSAP COUNTY FAIR, and then they donated it to our guild so we can auction it off to raise funds! That kind of generosity is rare and beautiful, as is the quilt:

This beauty is going to be available for auction sometime in the future. I will keep you posted here when this is in the works. Until then,  
THANK YOU, Donna and Sandy!
