Not only is Kristy creative, she is very generous. I told her about ome of the children of diaylsis. There parents can afford babysitters so they have to ring them to diaylsis (imagine intertaining an 7 yo for four hours and not being able to move) she donated a copy of her patterns so I could make toys for them. I love seeing there happy faces as I can quickly make something, and maybe someday I will even teach some of them and pass on the craft
