Birthday Mail

I got the absolutely most wonderful birthday present in the mail this week...thank you so much Darlene and Ron...yes Ron aka Mr. Daze made the quilt holder...Darlene made this quilt...Civil War fabrics, tiny 4 patches and wool letters...I'm sure they heard me squealing all the way in Arizona when I opened this package. Could there be any more perfect gift for an old retired teacher who loves Civil War repro fabrics? I am truly a LUCKY, LUCKY girl! Thank you Darlene and Ron! What a great birthday!
