Daddy's Dreams - Pay It Forward

What a blessing Daddy's Dreams has been!  That which I have received, far outweighs anything I have given on this project.  Just when I thought my heart couldn't possibly be more full, the goodness of people continues to humble me!

Pay It Forward #1: 

A few days prior to the September Daddy's Dreams Fabric Cutting Session, I received an unexpected box in the mail from Danny H. and his wife Karin: 

They live hundreds of miles away, so, as much as they want to, they can't participate in person with any Daddy's Dreams activities.  Instead, they printed a copy of the Needs List and went shopping in a foreign land (aka the sewing department).  They sent some much needed items for use at our September Daddy's Dreams session.  They also provided 2 of the Scallop Square Dies that we use to cut the quilt squares.  THANK YOU!!!  We have special plans for this fabric and the notions were much needed! 

Pay It Forward #2: 

I was thrilled to find out that Samantha M. and her mother, Kelly, would be able to join us for the September Daddy's Dreams session.  It was amazing to meet Samantha in person and, even more amazing that she was able to come just a day after completing her last round of chemo! 

Samantha cranked out hundreds of quilt squares using the Big Shot and the Scallop Square Die while her mom layered the fabrics for her.

Bless her heart!  Did I mention that she cranked out hundreds of quilt squares?

Samantha brought along her Daddy's Dreams quilt and I was pleased to see that she very genuinely loves it.  Samantha and Kelly plan on coming back next month to help again, where they will try their hand at sewing!

As always, the Daddy's Dreams project would not be possible without the generous donations and volunteers who spend countless hours making "works of heart."  Thank you to everyone who has had a part in making Daddy's Dreams a reality!
