There was a nice surprise waiting for me in the mail box today, and it isn’t even my birthday. It was a parcel from my pen friend Judy, who lives in Kiel, Germany. Inside was a lovely piece of fabric featuring cats in all sorts of colours doing what they do best, sitting, or playing, or sleeping, or just looking gorgeous. Judy put a lovely gift card in with the fabric and wrote, “your quilting blog is getting better all the time”. Isn’t that nice! Thanks so much, Judy.
