Fabric for Sue Campaign - Second Post for Today - Giveaway Too!!

As I mentioned in my other post today, my quilting mentor, Sue, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She will begin Chemo the Monday after Thanksgiving. She is very sad and scared as you could only imagine. She had a sister who passed from this disease several years ago.

Sue is an avid quilter, as I've said, she has taught me so much and taken me under her wing to teach me. When I first moved here, before my husband was able to join me here, I was all alone. I was driving to work one day, and my vehicle died. I had no one, nor did I really know anyone to help me. I called the office and told them I was going to be late and that I didn't know how I was going to get there, but I was going to have my vehicle towed to the garage and I'd try to get a rental. Her husband said nonsense, "I'll have Sue pick you up and bring you to work." She did just that and we talked all the way to my work. So when I found out she knew how to quilt, I asked if there was a quilting group anywhere, and she said their was and I met her there on Wednesdays during my lunch hour and that is when she taught me how to quilt. When I am having trouble with a quilt, I go visit her and she is always there for me and now I want to be there for her.

So what I am putting together is something that will put a smile on her face. I'm asking for you to open your heart and stash and send some fabric for Sue to get her quilting again, it can be a fat quarter, some squares, whatever. Please pin a note to the fabric with an inspirational message. Please include your name and city and state to the note.

Please feel free to share this with other quilters too or blog about it. If you cannot send some fabric, please pray for her speedy recovery. If you are interested in helping out, please leave me a comment, and I'll send you my email address where you can send your fabric with note too. I'd like to give this to Sue by December 15th.

Everyone who participates will be entered into a drawing for a lovely "I Love to Quilt" necklace and some other goodies.

Quilters are wonderful people. Thanks again from Debbie and Dixie Too!
