My journey to North Carolina was bittersweet as I had to say good-bye to you in Canada. My time that was spent in your home ever so brief and lovely. I made it here to my new home today after having traveled many hot and bumpy days as a true prairie doll. My wool pinafore is very warm.
I can tell you that Quilt Hollow is comfy and cozy. Mary already had a special chair for me. I'm still finding my way around her home before I finally choose my perfect place but can tell you I love all her quilts, spools, baskets, crocks and warmth. Oh Kaaren and Prudence, you would love it here! The barter was an excellent idea. Mary quilted your basket quilt in exchange for my adoption and I can tell you by the look in Mary's eyes that she loves me. She just can't get over the way you painted my face so pretty. You should have seen Mary trying to figure out how you made the scissor fob. She really liked that too. I do believe I'm in a good home as she is a quilter!
Here are a few photos Mary took of me and also your quilt just after she finished quilting it for you.
I'm in good hands,
**note from Mary*** Persophone has fit into my home perfectly and I couldn't be happier with the barter we shared. Although I must admit your quilt looked fantastic in my home and I hated to send it back. Thank you again Kaaren for the wonderful exchange. I surely got the better deal!
