What a Surprise!

What a surprise I found in the mail...Andy came in the house with the mail and said..."Here's a big brown box for you"...well, I really didn't have a clue...a friend said she was sending a box, but I was expecting a little box so I was jumping up and down until he gave it to me. Well, it was from Darlene
...and look what was inside

WOW! WOW! WOW! You know, I read Darlene's posts regularly and back in February she was talking about her blue and brown quilts that she was working on. She said that one was for her and one was for a friend. I remember thinking, "What a lucky friend to get a wonderful quilt from Darlene." Well, that's the very quilt that came in the mail to ME! I am the lucky friend. I love, love, love my new quilt...it's blue and BROWN! Could I be happier? Thank you Darlene! You are VERY special.
Blogland friends are truly wonderful!
Have a wonderful evening everyone!
