Bringing a little sunshine into someone's day is one of the greatest gifts we can give :) I have someone I know who's going to need lots of sunshine over the next 6 weeks. I am talking about my blogging friend Kaaren. Kaaren is the host of the blog The Painted Quilt and is one of the most generous people, giving us free patterns every month. Any way, Kaaren has started radiation and chemo this week and will be away from her home 5 days a week for the next 5 1/2 weeks taking her treatments.
As most of you know, my husband went thru cancer treatments last summer and I KNOW how long and lonely the days can be after your daily treatment is done. I thought "we need to find a way to cheer Kaaren up on those long days!" So, here's what I'm proposing...I am going to send to Kaaren's home address weekly a thinking of you or funny card and something squishie like a FQ or something. Then, when she gets home on the weekends, she has little bundles of sunshine to open or she could take them with her to the hospital and open them there. If you would like to participate, that would be wonderful! Just leave me a comment I can reply to and I will email you her snail mail addie and her favorite kinds of fabric. How often you send is up to you but once or twice would be nice.
So often, the chance to send cheer and sunshine comes only after we've found out someone has been sick! Kaaren has been very courageous in sharing her illness on her blog with us and I hope you will join me in helping her to keep her chin up!
****Update: Please note-- If you don't have a blogger account or have your account set to No-reply, I cannot email you Kaaren's info. You MUST include your email address in your comment to me. I have been very humbled by all those wanting to join in...Thank you so much!***
God Bless, and Happy Stitching,
