Life at This Green House has been pretty difficult the past couple of weeks.
So, imagine my surprise and delight today to open an unexpected parcel in the mail from my friend, quilter extraordinaire and nationally-acclaimed quilt teacher Heather Stewart. Inside the big box was a red and purple quilt (my favourite colours). Forty-eight blocks (my favourite number!) No one has ever given me a quilt. Out of the blue. For no particular reason.
Heather’s accompanying letter tells me:
“The enclosed gift was made at a retreat that I attended in January. When I got it done, I knew it was yours! Who else would like such a “red” quilt? It’s my hope this quilt keeps you warm on those damp days. I’ll picture you snuggled under it reading a book in front of the fireplace.”
Heather could not have known about my sadness at this time, nor what a lift such a generous gift would give me. Unless she’s got e.s.p.
Today is extra special, because I also learned that my family member’s latest tests came back clear, and that is just the best news I could hope for.
