How LOVELY to have friends who make you feel good!

My friend Susan Typpi just sent me this photo of a quilt at their local hospital. She bought toys to take to the children and as she was walking down the hallway, she noticed this quilt which had many of my fabrics from years past in it. So, she took a photo to show me that the fabrics are being used to keep people happy. Now, isn't that a lovely friend??? And a great quilt!
For those of you who know Mimi Dietrich, she has been on chemo for breast cancer. She wrote me the most lovely letter about reading my new book. She said after she got tired of magazines, she bought my book and read about creativity. She is well known for her Baltimore album quilts and in fact that is where she lives. Anyway, she said I may have changed her way of thinking and that she sees a story quilt of a woman with ruched breasts! How is that for creativity? I told her that people are looking for unique quilts and that her quilt may go down in history as a one of a kind! She would probably love a message for the holidays from you. Here is her AND for a good laugh, go to my next post. Then write Mimi.

It must be a wonderful feeling to see that quilt and how it is an inspiration for so many people. I have seen a few of mimi's books and quilts. I think a creative quilt while she is going through a tough time, would be a great project for her.
