I received a little ironic rejection yesterday. I had requested to join a quilting bee Flickr group called 'do. Good Stitches--A Charity Quilting Bee'. Based on what the description of the group said "Welcome! Let’s use our love for color, fabric and stitching to make quilts for children in need. This modern charity quilting bee requires members to be active on Flickr." I thought that if there was an opening I would be an excellent match. Evidently I was wrong. This is the message I opened last night:
12 hours later I am cool with it but when I first read this I was sort of in a state of disbelief-feeling like I was back in High School again and I was being rejected for not being 'in' enough. I don't want to sound too bitter and overdramatic here but I thought that the purpose of the group was to create quilts for kids in need--evidently there is a little more than that going on here.
So my friends, chin up--let's continue bringing HOPE and comfort to the people God leads to us--and rest assured--Margaret's Hope Chest will never decline a volunteer based on their 'quilting style'. We love all of our volunteer's work!
