My hero is my mom. After she was diagnosed with CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) 13 years ago, she retired from her career as social worker and began making quilts for a boys' home. She'd find out each boy's favorite colors, sports team, hobbies and incorporate these themes in their quilts. She also makes doll quilts for children who live in Haiti. She shares her love for quilting in our community in many ways. She helped start a quilting bee and teaches the history of quilts at local schools. She has recently started a sewing project for an organization called "daysforgirls.org". My mom truly shares her abundant love through her sewing....one stitch at a time.
