Yesterday I received in the mail my "Love-catcher" Community Quilt from Sara R. It is beautiful, with colorful fabrics in a distinctive ringed pattern Sara tells me is called "Cheyenne."

Unfortunately I don't have a camera--otherwise, I'd post a picture of this gorgeous quilt which I am keeping on my bed.

I especially would like to thank Sara and her sister Ann for the work they put into this quilt. As they have for the numerous quilts they've made others. They are truly angels.

And I'd also like to thank the many Kossacks who wrote their wonderful, thoughtful messages of love, hope and healing. I feel blessed--their kindness means a lot to me. This is the true meaning of "community."

Sorry this diary is so short--I just wanted to share the good news about my quilt and thank Sara and everyone who left messages for it. Love and hugs to all.

Update: What a surprise--this diary's on the Rec List! Thanks to all!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
