My Swap Quilt

It had to be, as I was mailing off the quilt to my partner, the same was being done for me. This wonderful little beauty came from Sue in Indiana. I just love the colors and that wonderful border. Gee Sue, you have read my mind. It is perfect. We have such a great bunch of gals at Quilted Table, if you haven't done so, you really should check us out. There are monthly table runners we make from free Internet patterns and then our special swaps that happen about 4 times year. It is a great way to share and make up some quick and easy little projects. You won't be disappointed.

Along with my little quiltie, Sue send some thread socks, a great fall panel print and the coolest mini rotary cutter. I have never seen one so small, but I know it is going to be a great addition to my sewing room. Thanks Sue, your a sweetie!

Better plug the US Post Office on this one too. Sue mailed my package on Thursday from Indiana and it was in my mailbox on Friday afternoon in Colorado. First class postage to boot, none of the overnight express or priority or anything????? Who would ever guess that the PO had it in em. Just when I am about to give up on them, they manage to come thru. Wow Wow, go PO! Now what about the package I send out, where could that be right now...

I would like to take a little time to remember all our brothers and sisters who lost their lives Sept 11. Hard to believe it was 9 years ago already. Working for an airline, the memory is never far away, but today it has special meaning for me. I will be flying this evening. It was planned that way, as my memorial to them, and to keep our freedom by not allowing it to paralyze us. I have on my special Commemorative FBI/9-11 pin that one if the agents, who flew from Denver last week, gave me when I checked him in. I promised him it would be on tonight on my flight, and I am keeping my word. May all our 9-11 angels be watching over us!

  2. Wow, Joan -- what a beautiful story about your tribute. I never knew that you worked for an airline; I can imagine that 9-11 has a deep and poignant significance in your life. I think we all hold our collective breath every year on this date.

    Peace.
