I awoke to a very sad email this morning from a bloggy friend, Sarah...
I just wanted to pass on some news about one of our group members - Mary Lou Casada, who blogs over at Cheaper Than Therapy Quilting, posted today that their 17 year old son Sam died unexpectedly in his sleep this morning. Her post is a great testament to Sam's life, and his (and her) Christian faith. I am absolutely stunned by her news, but wanted to be sure that you all knew so you had an opportunity to do whatever you feel led to do.....
Mary Lou is my Hands2Help charity quilt swap partner, so I was extremely sad for her and so moved by her strength to write a blog post this morning.
Several bloggers are making heart blocks and sending them to Mary Lou. I am sure these blocks will bring her comfort as she opens them one by one in the mail from people all over the world.
If you would like to participate in this please leave a comment on my blog and make sure to leave your email address so I can get in touch with you if you are a no-reply blogger. I will send you Mary Lou's address in a separate email. The blocks can be anything you want, applique, pieced, painted... just 8" square.
What a beautiful treasure Mary Lou will have as she sews each of these blocks together into a quilt.
