The past few days brought some charming additions to the decor of my
cell room. Nancy, Claui's mom, put together this pot with a white amaryllis bulb as well as some paperwhite narcissi, in the midst of variegated ivy. It will be a pleasure to watch the green shoots growing.
And a longtime blog friend, professional quilter Pepper Cory, sent me this lovely quilt from her stash. It does a great job of brightening up the room and making me smile.
And speaking of quilts and longtime blog friends, Therese in Toulouse sent me this beautiful publication about making penny quilts using a combination of wool felt, regular fabrics, and embroidery. I can't wait to try this. I was thrilled to find that, though it's all in French (of which I had one brief summer course in college over fifty years ago,) I can understand it well enough to make sense of it.
I have felt such support from all of you during the past two months -- online well-wishes and cheerful chatter, prayers, healing vibes, cards, letters, flowers, books, food, fruit, and chocolate. Even the odd healing spell or two.
I am so blessed. Many thanks, my dear friends!
