One is never really alone

When you least expect it, someone, in this case, Sue Spargo and my folkart prim group touched me from far away with a gift of love. As their card read, from their hearts to my hands, a treasure of a gift of Sue's Emperial Garden BOM. After the accident, I had to cancel the BOM, knowing I wouldn't have the money or time to proceed. I had so wanted to make this quilt. And today I picked up

the mail and there was a big box, filled with all the months I had missed. I am so humbled and honored to call these ladies my friends, who know me so well, and think so much of me to do this, yet we've never met. I've been crying now for an hour, bittersweet tears. I can't thank them enough.
