    i got the best surprise in the mail today from france.

    kathryn sent me a lovely stained-glass hand-quilted butterfly wallhanging with my logo embroidered on the back. i want everyone to know what a generous person she is and how much i appreciate her thoughtfulness.

    and she really does do the most beautiful work. this was an experiment and it looks like she was born doing it.

    right out loud THANK YOU k3n. and as you always say...xxx

    p.s. when i have it hanging i will definitely post it for everyone to see.

    Usually the male is more colorful ( they have to have something to attract a female) What a lovely spot for a lovely wall hanging. Perfect for someone named butterfly wing. She does awesome work.
