Giving Thanks

I originally signed up for do. good stitches as a stitcher. Rachel contacted me and asked if I'd like to be a quilter instead and I readily agreed. Then after a little more back and forth, I found myself the host of the Haven circle.

Haven donates quilts to Alternatives for Battered Women in Rochester, NY. It has meant so much to me to do even a tiny bit to help women and children in a terrible situation. Courtney's lovely sentiments really sum it up for me. I am so thankful that Rachel has allowed me to take part in this group, and I wanted to write a post thanking all of our members and showcasing the amazing work they've done this year.

  1. Thank you, Sara, for taking the reins and heading up our group! You do an awesome job as a leader and keeping things in order. Also, thanks to all you other Havenites. I am privileged to be apart of this circle & this effort. Your talent inspires me and each month's block challenges me to becoming a better stitcher. I look forward to the quilts we will create in 2014 together and pray that the love we all put into each stitch will ultimately bring hope and joy to its recipient. Thank you again, YA'LL!
