Peggy Loves Teddy

....the mailman brought me a very special box yesterday from a friend. And, all I could do at the moment was cry after I opened it. And, I was still crying when I called to say thank you. And, she was in an elevator leaving the hospital after having visited her new granddaughter which was also born yesterday Ü

Sheryl (Missouri) and I belong to Quilting Passion Forum (we have never met in person btw) (we have only visited on the phone and emailed). We head-up a group of us that make quilts for Project Linus. Sheryl had made one about a month ago and I went to her blog to see a picture of the quilt and said I wish I was a little girl again so that I could have a quilt like that. Little did I know that I would get one for my very own Ü My name is even embroidered in the little red heart!

And, it's all my favorite fabric... you know the 'fossil fern' I mentioned in my last blog! It is also a favorite of Sheryl's. I wish you could see all the hand quilting she did... oh my goodness! All the tiny even stitches. My son asked me last night how come I didn't do things like the teddy bears. uh, cause I don't think I could!!

Sheryl is the kind of friend that asks how you are and waits for the answer.... Thank you Sheryl! Someday we'll sit together and visit.... I just know it will happen! In the meantime I will get friendship hugs from Teddy!

(pictures of me always remind me of that 'deer in the headlight look'...lol)
