Fall Flying Geese table runner is made from half-square triangles leftover from a custom Dream On quilt I made in 2013.

One of my sisters decorates by the season, so this table runner has made its way to her house as a surprise gift!

Please continue reading to learn how you can help us pay for vision therapy for our daughter.  It will cost $4,000 over the next six months!

Craftsy's big fabric and yarn sale is still running through Monday!  I have noticed at Craftsy that in order to see all fabrics and quilt kits, I need to go several places under the Kits and Supplies tabs at the top.  It seems that items "hide" and don't always show up where I'd expect them to be.  I found a lot more on sale today when I went to the Clearance Section.  I've learned to look around at all of the categories in order to see everything.

If you purchase through my Craftsy link, I earn a commission.  I would appreciate this very much.  My 13 year-old daughter will be undergoing vision therapy, which over the next six months will cost $4,000.  Using my Craftsy link will help us pay that bill.  Thank you!

We do not have traditional insurance to cover vision therapy; rather, we participate in Christian Healthcare Ministries, an ever-growing group of Christians who share one another's healthcare costs.  Maybe this seems a strange place to endorse CHM since they are not covering our need.  Even though Vision Therapy is not covered with CHM, the annual premium we would pay on a family policy that covers Vision Therapy is more than the cost of Vision Therapy, so the "benefit" of having it covered would actually cost us more money than paying for it ourselves!  {My husband's job does not cover insurance for the family, and we would pay the premiums ourselves.}
CHM is an eligible option under Obamacare and is much cheaper than traditional insurance.  If you decide to join Christian Healthcare Ministries, please let me know FIRST, and I will give you our sponsor information.  It earns us one month's paid premium after you've been a member for three months!  We highly recommend becoming Gold level members with additional Brother's Keeper coverage.  At this level, incidents costing over $500, including doctors visits, are covered no matter how big the bills and will be shared by all members.  An incident is all care related to one diagnosis.
