This is what it looks like when I am with my Days for Girls cohorts!  We bring our cars together, open our trunks, and move fabric from one car to the next, to the next and to the next.  We must each always be stocked and ready to help with future events!  Today we started assembling kits for 130 women who will be at the American Quilting Retreat next week.  Remember 100 women and 100 sewing machines in one room last year?  This year there will be more, and we will share this goodness with them.  I can hardly wait.

Here are parts and pieces waiting to be sewn:

I continue to feel overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and service from the women in this area.  I returned home this afternoon to find these bags on my doorstep.  Thanks to Christine Chappell in Heber and Julie Treadwell in Fruit Heights for dropping by with these Beautiful shields and liners.   I hope every time I say THANK YOU to those who help, each will feel the love and thanks from the 100s  and 100s of girls who have received these gifts.  It’s so much more than a gift.  It’s freedom and peace and comfort and security and life.
