    Boop my postcard is ready to mail. I have an idea for next month already. I think I will give my idea a shot to see if it will work. If not then back to the drawing board.

    Good friends are like quilts.
    They never lose their warmth.

    When giving is all we have
    By: Alberto Rios
    One river gives Its journey to the next.

    We give because someone gave to us.
    We give because nobody gave to us.

    We give because giving has changed us.
    We give because giving could have changed us.

    We have been better for it,
    We have been wounded by it—

    Giving has many faces: It is loud and quiet,
    Big, though small, diamond in wood-nails.

    Its story is old, the plot worn and the pages too,
    But we read this book, anyway, over and again:

    Giving is, first and every time, hand to hand,
    Mine to yours, yours to mine.

    You gave me blue and I gave you yellow.
    Together we are simple green. You gave me

    What you did not have, and I gave you
    What I had to give—together, we made

    Something greater from the difference.

    Queenbarbiej, sorry for my brain scramble in sending you January instead of Decembers keeping warm. I got yours too. Love the tiny little patches, so detailed. It does look warm and cozy! Thank you! I have lots of doctor stuff this week. Towards the later part of the week I will be back at a computer and will upload pics then.

    How is everyone doing? We have a heatwave sitting upon us. Cannot wait to see all the arm and snuggly quilts that have traveled to you.

    As most of you know R-sea is such an amazing person to swap with. While chatting with her, I found out her mother is still living and will be 106 on Feb. 5th, 2020. How amazing is that. I am trying to get as many people to send her a card. As you know, it takes about 2-3 weeks for them to get their mail in Australia. A card or post card costs around $1.15 to send.If you would like to help make this memorable birthday even memorable.
    PM me for the address
    Thanks a ton.
