I'm very touched by the nice comments you're leaving on my last post. I've been receiving messages through email as well. So many of you have people from your past that you, too, dream of reconnecting with. As I replied to several, I was a little hesitant about sharing something so personal but I wanted people not to give up hope about such possibilities, to know that they exist, even in a world of difficult headlines. I'm so happy that our story is encouraging some of you to make a serious effort in your search. There is nothing like reuniting with old friends!
It may take me a few days to reply to all of the comments because tomorrow I am off on another trip. After scuffing about the house most of that long, gray, seemingly unending winter, all of a sudden last-minute travel opportunities abound! Last weekend, I was north of the border, this weekend I'm heading south. I'm meeting Molly, here on on a business trip, in San Antonio for a girls' weekend and we'd love some suggestions. We've already done a little internet research and have noted the usual tourist spots, but we'd love some personal recommendations. Offbeat neighborhoods, galleries, unique shops (antique, fine crafts, etc.), restaurants ~ any fun stops that might escape our notice would be most appreciated! I'll have my iPad with me, so feel free to forward tips through the weekend. I'm looking forward to my first trip to Texas!
Between tucking things in a suitcase, I'm taking a little time today to plan out my version of Lori's new quiltalong. I'm going to try to make mine a bit 'off', like the quirky original, so I'm taking some notes on the photo before I start. We'll see how that goes.
Oh, and several asked about a little tutorial on how to make the fabric envelope. I'll do that sometime soon.
