I belong to an online email list, (which shall remain nameless so the secret remains just that.) One of the ladies/quilters there has been a wonderful contributor to the list; often sharing fun patterns and free designs, much to the delight of all who read the posts.
Recently, she has been missing, she has cancer and has undergone many difficulties in her recovery.
It was suggested that we send her quilt blocks. This heart pattern is what we chose.
Then someone suggested that we send her a quilt, since she won't be able to sew for a while.
I volunteered to sew the blocks together if someone else would quilt it.
The little squishies started piling up in my mailbox. :-)
Community matters. Hospitality matters. Comforting those whereby you have been comforted matters. I'm not talking about Random Acts of Kindness, those help to make the world a better place, yes. But I'm talking about deliberately stepping out of your comfort zone and doing a tangible thing to help someone in need.
I am so thankful to be a part of this first Q-Hearts project, with many more to come.
