The UPS truck stopped here today...............


Today the UPS truck stopped at our house.  He brought a large box for me from my dear friend, Shirley.  Shirley and I have been friends for over 60 years. I was so excited to open the box -- and look what was inside -- this beautiful quilt. I just love it -- for the beauty of the quit and especially for the beautiful friend who made it for me. I think I am one of the most fortunate people around -- I still have ( and meet with monthly ) friends from kindergarten (67 years ago) -- and I have all the great new friends I have made thru the quilting and beading sites on the web. You all hold a special place in my heart. Take a look at the photo of this wonderful quilt --I can snuggle in it when I need to feel the closeness of my dear friend. Thank you, Shirl, I am just so thrilled.

Yes, it is a beautiful gift -- from a beautiful friend. I snuggled up under it today for a short nap -- and it is just so cozy -- must be because it was made with lots of love :-)
