LearningFA - postcards for Carma

Woohoo, this one came up right ways so you don't have to do any acrobatics :)
The wonderful, gracious, leader of Learning FA got some devastating family news recently regarding her son. He has advanced cancer.
She has been involved with a home called Carma House, which is a support group for cancer survivors, for about the past year or so. A number of us are sending her fabric postcards to help raise money for them.
If you visit her blog at you can see some of the fabulous cards that have already arrived and learn more about this worthwhile fundraiser.
One of the other groups I am with LadyofSHE is about to start a project to raise money for a cancer victim. I'll tell you more about that when I get back from vacation. It will be Christmas ornament orientated.

Shirley here. Carol, thanks so much for the wonderfully kind words and the postcards which arrived yesterday. I have already given
Carma house 50 postcards and have another 31 here so will take them down next week. You would be so tickled at the reception they get from the volunteers and Staff.

My son is doing as well as can be expected. He starts radiation therapy next week, hopefully it will reduce the main tumor and make eating easier for him. No one will ever know what the good wishes and prayers, (and postcards) mean to me.

I hope you have a wonderful time in Scotland. It is one of my favorite places in all the world.
