Celebrations can be within and in crowds, I think both happened yesterday.
They were asked to reflect on the sewing process, what they know about it now. Here is some of their advice . . .
"Pick the cloths you like . . . put time and effort in the quilt . . . don't poke yourself . . . try hard . . . try your best . . . you have to be calm . . . it doesn't have to be perfect, have fun! . . . do the running man sewing (the running stitch) . . . make sure your quilt has a message . . . never give up, have perseverance . . . it may seem like yours looks terrible, but it will look great in the end . . . never say you can't do this . . . be happy!"
This school is an amazing place, a school full of passionate teachers who work very hard, with very little, to do what they can for children, many with heartbreaking stories. I came thinking about what I could give, but watching them see the finished display, and finding themselves within in it . . . I don't have words for what I have received.
