These lovely men gave me the "Shirts Off Their Backs" for the Cure

My quilt project has taken on a life of its own.

Thank goodness....otherwise how could I keep up with it all?

I love these men.......they are good and they are generous.........and they are happy to be able to be a part of this quilt of stories. Stories of desperation........stories of hope........stories of loss.......stories of healing. We won't know all of their stories and I don't think that is important anyway. They know their stories.

But now they know that their stories will be around for a long, long time. Woven into a quilt of patches from the shirts off their backs. I love it....I wish that I could keep it. It will be made with some of my own tears and prayers too. There must be a rule that I can't win it?!! Conflict of interest? It wouldn't look good would it? How about my husband? Can he win it?
