Girls, look, it’s Cynthia’s Quilt!
Cynthia’s the lucky girl that won our quilt giveaway; look how cute it looks at her house! I love the route this quilt has taken — A couple of weeks ago I saw it in an antique store when we were driving across Wisconsin; the vintage fabric folded over a chair instantly formed the Finding Nemo seagull word on my lips, “Mine.” I brought it to California and started getting the idea that maybe it could be a giant thank you for all the lovely comments we’ve been receiving from you. So I hung it on the line and took pictures of it while we waited for the announcement that it was CINDY whose name was drawn; and then, off it went, winging back across country. And now, here it is, ensconced and happy, looking perfect in Cynthia’s guest room in Western New York, complete with Lucy Cat! Here’s what Cynthia wrote when she sent this photo:
Dear Susan, I received the quilt yesterday and wanted to send you a picture of it so you could see how perfect it looks in my guest room. The ‘guest’ you’re seeing is Lucy Cat . . . a former stray that found us 2 yrs ago by hiding her babies in our basement. She has no voice, but really doesn’t need one because we usually know just what she wants to say. It’s 74 degrees here in Western NY today, but soon it’ll be cold and I’ll be glad to be under the ‘Branched-Out love’ of this special quilt. Hope you enjoy the rest of your time in California, but I’m sure you’re clicking your heels together saying, “There’s no place like Home.” Thank you so much for all you do . . . and especially the beautiful quilt.
Couldn’t wait to send this to you! Looks to me like this quilt is clicking its heels together and saying, “There’s no place like home.” ♥
