The blessings keep flowing to me

The last two Wednesday afternoons I was blessed to teach for the Alzheimer Society's Gathering at the Galley program.  It is such a great program that benefits Alzheimer patients and their caregivers.  I got connected to the program through a friend that works at the KW Art Gallery.  I was asked to teach for the program because I am a fibre artist and they wanted the participants to experience working with fabric/fibre. Of course, a number of the female participants had worked with textiles.  One beautiful soul had made skating costumes for her grandchildren.  She no longer sews those costumes so she shared the above pictured trims with me and the class.  It was a delight for everyone to get use the glitz!  She kindly told me to take home what was leftover.  Fun.  I know for sure I will think of her when I stitch these trims.  I am so blessed!
