Hearts for Peyton
Here is a photo of today's work. A friend is making a heart quilt to auction off for a 4 year old named Peyton who has been diagnosed with neurofibromatosis and will be undergoing chemotherapy. There is a benefit dinner and auction later this month to raise funds for his family. I made these blocks today for my friend to use in the quilt.
Stories like Peyton's and his family make me wish I was rich and could donate a bunch of money to cancer research and helping patients and their families through these hard and uncertain times. But I'm not rich and will probably never be rich enough to give away the amount of money this problem requires. So I make a few quilt blocks, stitched with love and prayers of healing. Then I go hug my child and say a prayer of thanks that he is healthy.
