    Thank you Ube!!!!

    A couple of months ago I sent some really small pieces of left over fabric to Ube as she makes such beautiful quilts with teensy weensy pieces.

    Early this year, she posted a pic of a WH-quilt that she had made with some of the scraps: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t273897.html

    Today I had a horrible day at work, and was so happy to get home ... and there was this package for me ... and when I opened it, it was the quilt!!!

    What a fabulous surprise for such a horrible day! And certainly something I never expected!

    Thank you so much Ube! It is gorgeous!!!!

    I loved it the first time I saw it. what a wonderful gift.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You are so welcome Marion. It truly was my pleasure to give your littles a new life. You enjoy it now as much as I did making it.

    I am happy it arrived in time to brighten a hard day.

    I remember that, it was such a 'happy' little quilt! How very dear of her to return it to you. And look how it blessed your day, too! Quilty friends are THE BEST!

    I, too, remember Ube's picture post and loved how bright and cheerful it was. So thoughtful and kind of her to send you the mini quilt.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
