quilters across the globe sharing their talents and forging new friendships

I am so honored

We were out of town for a week and arrived back Sunday afternoon. Going through the mail, which my darling daughter #2 had piled on my bed, I saw a large package.  I opened it last because I had a feeling it would be the best.  And I was right!  Inside was a beautiful lap quilt made by wonderful friends from around this world.  I can't tell you how overwhelmed I am at the generosity of you all.  My  dear friend in CA always tells me I look at the world through rose colored glasses (somewhat sarcastically) and she is right-I do look through rose colored glasses and I see wonderful women like you all!

I can't take a picture and post it yet because I need a special size connector.  But I can say that it is absolutely beautiful.  All of you so generously reached out to "hug" me, and Viv-I can't believe you hand quilted the blocks!  This is something I will cherish all my life.  And it couldn't have arrived at a better time.  My second eye surgery to remove the "debris" is scheduled in July and we will be leaving for OH on Thursday as the situation is coming to resolution-the hospice nurse feels it is better if we come in sooner rather than later.

I love all of you for the women you are, that you would reach out and wrap me in your love, and that we get to do this again!  Thank you so much from the bottom of  my heart.
xxooxx, San-Dee


  1. San-Dee I'm so glad you love your quilt and well done to Viv for putting all our blocks together, can't wait to see it. I know how I felt earlier this year when Sue put mine together for me, being wrapped in the friendship of awesome women is the best feeling in the world. I love you all and this is why I'll probably come back and do it again...!!

  2. That's wonderful news San-Dee, you deserve it. I can't wait to see photo.

  3. San-Dee, I am so glad you got your quilt and that you like it. I look forward to seeing it! Thanks Viv for quilting it for the group. It was difficult for me to keep this secret.....

    Who knew that you one could be such great friends with people we may never even get to see! The wonder of the internet!

    I am looking forward to hosting the next bee.I hope I can do a good job with it. I should have the final plan ready for January!

    Anyone planning to go to the International Quilt show in Houston this November. I will be there!

    hugs to all from Louisiana

  4. Oh San-Dee I'm so happy your happy!

    I went looking on my computer for my finished picture and I can't find it!!! I did some cleaning up of my photo files, putting things in folders that made sense...between me and my 2 girls that is a lot of folders!!!

    I'm so glad to have found all of you and you are all beautiful women and I treasure you.
