Today I was finally able to go out and run some errands, the snow and weather has been horrid.
Went to the postoffice and lots of mail, that happens when you only go once a week.
I had written Linda Brannock about a cross quilt that she had on her blog, I wanted to make one like it with fabric from Jim's shirts. She emailed me right back. For some reason, I thought she was going to send
me the instructions since it was never published in one of her books. I opened up the package from her and there was the actual quilt for me to use for inspiration. I'm holding a Linda Brannock quilt in my hands, it's beyond precious. Couldn't stop crying. It will be hard to send it back, but she said, take your time, no hurry in returning it.
And then the nicest card and a Layer Cake of her Miss Jump's Scap Bag. I am so touched.
My next package was from one of my quilting friends from my online group. A card that me cry again before I even saw what was inside the package, lots of goodies and then the most special framed piece, tiny yo yo's with a needle and thread on top, a real treasure of stitching and art. More happy tears. I'm touched again as I have been with all the words of sympathy.
For some reason, I can't upload the little framed quilt. Will try again later.
