This letter goes out to my long-time snail mail pen-pal in the Ukraine.
Thank you so very much for the lovely quilt you made and mailed to Ellen for her first birthday! I am so touched by your thoughtfulness and generosity. We all appreciate it so much. I know it will be something Ellen will treasure all of her life. It must have taken hours and hours to piece all of those little blocks together.
My grandmother used to make numerous quilts and someday I hope to get a sewing machine and do the same thing. They are a lasting testament of love.
Thank you again!
