    I think I perished and ended up in heaven !!!!

    Look at me...do I look happy or what?

    Today a package came in the mail for me from a member of the quilting forum (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) and I just have to show it off. I've never had a bed quilt before in my life, and this one has a mixture of patterns and in my favorite color and I love and will cherish it for the rest of my life. It is wonderful. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

    thanks so much Janet. If it weren't for the quilt forum, I wouldn't have been able to make and give away as many dolls to kids with devestating medical problems as I have ...134 so far (most with cancer) (I've posted about the dolls) and never have met the lady and her daughter that gave me the quilt. The Lord works in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform. Merry Christmas and thanks for the reply. I also live in California.

    I am not sure which is sweeter...the quilt or you!!! What a nice blessing someone gave you.

    I have been blessed, that is for sure. Hardly know how to thank her. She just said "Keep making your dolls'.

    I plan to keep on keeping on at that. Would so like to have been a fly on the wall when those kids in N.C. got their doll at the hospital. I receive far more then I ever give by helping those kids.

    Thanks for the replies on the quilt. I am still smiling about the wonderful quilt and ll the comments.

    God Bless each of you
