Thank you

We missed the postie yesterday. All we got was a slip of paper telling us we had to wait. It was a very long wait until this morning. Before the dentist, we zipped to the PO and picked up a box that had traveled many, many, many miles in so many ways.

We opened the box in the car, of course, and read all of the names and admired the fabrics and shed some tears (OK, still reading, admiring and shedding…).

Reading the names is like reading a list of old friends and feeling supported in this.Β She reads off the names and I tell her what I know about each person. I haven’t gotten stumped yet. It’s like a quiz for my brain. And I am grateful to “know” you all. We both thank you from the bottoms of our mending hearts.

As you can see, Herself has found a happy spot on top of the quilt.

We both have oooh-ed and aaaaaah-ed over the fabrics and the quilting. She has found her favorite fabric in Pratima’s block.

Oh, and look, here are some more riches from the box. These are to celebrate my advanced age. πŸ™‚ I will thank Miss Sarah in advance and feast on these shortly.

Do you ever find that you just don’t know what to do when faced with such kindness? “Thank you” continues to feel inadequate but thank you.

  10. That is a pretty fantastic way for people to show how much they care… The quilting community is pretty darn cool. Just wonderful.

    It’s always fun to make a quilt for a quilter
    Many hugs

    “Do small things with great love.” It was a small gesture from each one of us to show both of you just how much you are cared for. xoxo

  14. Anita said

    It’s therapeutic on both sides. A mending for you and something for us to do & show how much we care when it feels like nothing can make it better. Hugs across the miles!

    I was so happy to see your name in my blog feed this morning! I (WE, I’m sure) think of you often. Hopefully every time you wrap up in your quilts, you will feel a big hug from all of your friends *out here*.

      It is so nice to see you blogging again! Thanks to Sarah for planning these beautiful quilts and giving me a chance to express my feelings for you. It is only a humble block, but it is wonderful to see Annabel’s smiles!

  16. Ellen Ban said

    So happy to see your daughter enjoying her quilt! Can’t wait to see yours, too! Hope you feel the love in every stitch. So happy I could make a block for each of you.

  17. Mary Jo said

    I’m so glad the quilt arrived and she likes it. Hopefully your quilt will be close behind and you will both feel all the love and support from those who contributed to them. Sarah did a great job coordinating the project.

    Lovely & perfect X
    Glad too see you

  19. It’s so good to see that the first quilt has made its way home to your house. It was such a great way to send you and your daughter hugs from far away.

  20. Alexandra said

    So, so glad that you like the quilt…..I was very honored to be the one to longarm quilt it. I hope the fabric hugs of all the quilters involved keep little Miss feeling loved by so many. Funnily enough I remember that favourite fabric… many in there to choose from.

    I am so happy to have been able to be a part of this! Sarah did a fabulous job coordinating it all. I did have to giggle that I made blocks here in Mi, sent them to Oz only to have them return to Mi!! It was a wonderful way for us to let you know how much you are loved and cherished by the rest of us! Sending love and hugs to you!!
