Celebrating Victoria!!!


Do you ever ask yourself,

"How is it possible that there can be so many wonderful people in the world and so much love?"

Sometimes I sit and have a little sting in my nose and a tear in my eye as I humbly sit and thank God for friendship!  Or....I just cry......with sheer joy and delight as I did last night when I opened this quilt gift from Victoria from http://bumblebeansinc.blogspot.com/. I was on pins and needles all day at work awaiting the moment when I could arrive home and peek in the mailbox....a little birdie whispered in my ear that I was receiving a gift on my birthday from New York....and then the suspense mounted as Victoria sang me "Happy Birthday" on my phone...REALLY? Little me giggling as I heard her voice on my message...I fell in love with Victoria's Mary that she created a few weeks ago and then to my suprise, she created one for me that I can enjoy each day!  V is a classy lady whose life is a CELEBRATION of creating, love for others and PURE TALENT!!!!!!....and I love to see cookie dough and think of her eating too much at Christmas or a "+" that reminds me of her Christmas Quilt..


I so love the idea that Victoria taught us in Blogland of cutting up little scraps to create fabric.  I told her that it was a fav part of her other Mary and so "POOF!" look at the fabric around my Mary....And then I traced the quilting envisioning her making this.

And the LOVE NOTE! 

Thank you, V! I celebrate you!!!!!!

Love, Em
