Applique Market

My heart is heavy for Luke today. He has had a setback and had to leave rehab and return to the children's hospital. His family will soon be traveling to The Mayo Clinic in Rochester for treatment.




Many of you have written me with kind words asking how you can help this family. They have asked only for our prayers but I know that their financial needs must be growing. I have set up a place on my site to make a $5 donation to Luke's family expenses, and I'm sure that many of you can and would like to donate more. You can just increase the quantity to 2, 3, 4, etc. and your $5 will be multiplied by that quantity number. 100% of your donations will be delivered to Luke's mom and Dad by me personally.




In exchange for your donation you will receive an machine embroidery applique superhero design below - in honor of Luke's nickname "Superman". This applique design will include 4 sizes, 3, 4, 5 and 6 inch. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT AN IRON-ON PATCH. IT IS A DIGITAL DESIGN FILE FOR AN EMBROIDERY MACHINE.




ALSO, Luke's parents are encouraged by the words and prayers of all of us. If you would like to write a note to them, email it to me at and put LUKE in the subject line and I will print them out and take them to the hospital with the donations. You can read Luke's story at

Thank you!
