luddie343 said...

Shelly, do you know I was so overcome with gratitude for having my mother's "Zsa Zsa" quilt made, that I completely have the dates wrong I now see!  She was born in 1923 and died in 2005.  How could I have gotten that so wrong?  Shows the incredible emotion involved in trying to claim one's life again after losing a parent.  Or both.  Thanks again xoxo CATHY
