DSCN7304Easter came and went and spring tip-toed in behind.DSCN7310My son and I went to New Canaan and helped my sister with her tag sale.  We brought back flowers from her yard – and many wonderful gifts from her home.DSCN7312It was a bittersweet time.  Having the day with my son is an exceptional gift for which I am so grateful.  But saying goodbye to my only sibling as she packs up and heads south is distressingly sad.  When I returned home there were surprises to comfort even the most tearful person…DSCN7307Dear Sweet Pratima – I won her poppy quilt.  Honestly, I couldn’t bear to open the two parcels for quite some time.  The handmade papers and precious tags needed to sit and be admired.DSCN7311Linens.  Words fail.  Many many thanks Pratima.  Your beautiful quilt will be hung this weekend and it will have its own post.
