    Was tacking a pretty pink rose blanket (just a fabric sandwich, not a quilt) and trying to watch Book TV at the same time. Nipped the fabric when trimming the tack. Dumb Me!. And it's for a very special gal who's one of the longest surviving CF sufferers. (She's in her late 40's)

    oh well, a few stitches of thread, and I'll just fess up to her!

    All can be fixed with a few discreet stitches -I'm sure it was made with a lot of love.

    There are a couple of rules that I think apply here.

    Rule#1: Don't sweat the small stuff.
    Rule #2: It's all small stuff.

    As a CF survivor I'm sure your friend will agree. And I know she'll love your thoughtful gift.

    J. is one of the longest surviving victims of CF. She's been hanging in for a long time.

    BOOK TV is every weekend on C-SPAN 2. There are interviews with non-fiction authors. Discussions of non-fiction books. A feature "What are you reading" that asks well known people what they are currently reading.

    I love it. Don't like every book or every author, but there is such a wide variety of folks and titles that something you like is bound to pop up.

    Google BOOK TV and get an overview of the program. It runs for 48 hours-- Saturday morning thru Monday morning.
