As a designer, I rarely hear where my design ideas go, who gets them, who likes them, who even finishes them and who gets touched by them. Well, I just received a heart warming email today that pretty much summed up what I was hoping for. This is what makes me smile.....
I just wanted to share a great story with you. A friend of my daughter recently had a health crisis & like so many people nowadays he has no health insurance. It was decided to have a fund raising auction for him. A lot of different gift baskets & other creative things were put in a silent auction. My daughter asked me if I could make something for the auction. Since she is not a crafter, she does not realize that a week is not much time to come up with something spectacular (they think that these things are done in days not weeks or months). I remembered your Child's Ruffled Hat pattern. I was able to get it done in time but rather than the silent auction it was decided to have a raffle. They sold 50 tickets at $10 each so that little hat raised $500 for a good cause. That hat pattern is one of my favorites & now I know why. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful ideas. PS I bought that pattern from the Allyn Yarn Shop.
What a lovely lady for not only her kind words but for the time and commitment she made to the auction and to a person in a time of need.
