In memory of my sister

I am just starting out, It's just me for right now.
I was the care-taker for my younger sister, I learned about the Charity Shawls, etc. just from a kit I bought, "A cancer awareness scarf." I'm going from there, making shawls, scarves, hats in her memory. My first shawl went to her, she got to wear it about 3-4 hous before she went to heaven. My baby daughter now has her shawl and is a comfort thing for her.
I can't seem to find any people to help and I didn't know where all the yarn was going to come from. I asked several people to donate, got two yarn donations. Now, yarn is comming to me from other sources, mostly family. God knows what is in my heart and is supplying yarn through people I kmow. God is good! He shall supply my needs.
I commend all you gals who are doing this out of a need in your hearts.
You will be blessed as well as your blessing to the ones who recieve theese lovely gifts. F.B.
