Thank you to a few bloggers who emailed me to check on me because I hadn't posted for several days. I've been checking on your blogs but didn't take the time to write a post. My DH was off for several days, son #1 came home this weekend and so the house was full and busy again. I did get a small bit of quilting in and will share that with you next post. In the meantime, I just have to share this story!
A couple post back I was begging for some fabric for my Buzz Saw. Mona (I think a no blogger) wrote me a nice email to say she works with mostly civil war and didn't want the piece she had so was sending it. I received that package in the mail along with this little quilted trivet and very nice letter that made me think of my own sister. Here is just a small sampling of what Mona wrote: "I enjoyed "visiting" with you online today. Enclosed is the fabric we talked about plus a "little nothing" (as my mom calls little gifties). I made a few of these pot holders out of extra "Lotta Latte" fabric I had. I made 2 of my sisters quilts out of it so we could "have coffee" together every day since we don't live near one another and can't get together as often as we'd like. You are a hoot and someone I'd enjoy sitting down to visit with over a cup of coffee. Since that isn't possible, I'm sending the pot holder instead."
Well, Mona...thank you so much for your sweet act of kindness! I've got a "little nothing" being sent your way soon. Sis and I love making Starbuck runs together when we do get to see each other. She lives on the West coast and I'm on the East...so I know exactly how you feel.
