Keeping Linda Close...

 
Talk about being overwhelmed and emotional. An online friend sent me
 two of Linda Brannock's original quilts as a Christmas gift.
I read the card, looked at the quilts, read the card,
looked at the quilts, taking a moment for it all to sink in and started crying.
I was holding two quilts that Linda made.
Yes, it did feel as though Linda was close.

Thank you...
 
I'm so very touched by your generosity and spirit.
You know how much this means to me knowing
 that we both share a love for Linda and her work.
