For more info about the threads of love project and details about how you can contribute link to my first post http://quilt4nie.blogspot.com/2008/09/welcome-welcome-what-please-donate-4.html

Many suggestions have been made to make quilts for the Chief, Stephanie, and Christian as well. I would be happy to sew more quilts with any extra fabric I receive. If you would like to contribute to their quilts I am also going to start a collection for each of them. Thank you for supporting the Nielsons through threads of love!

Someone asked me if I was nervous to meet Nie.
I easily answered not at all.
My comfort was merited; she is just as genuine in person as she is on her blog.
Her family is delightful!
She is Stephanie Nielson.
The scars may mask her previous beauty but her endearing spirit engulfs you.
The scars quickly become invisible and you see her.
No accident could ever take her beauty.
We had a wonderful day.
Thank you, thank you to all who contributed.
