A couple of weeks ago I received an e mail that was titled ‘ A quilt Not Forgotten’. I didn’t recognise the sender but took a risk and opened the e mail. The writer of the e mail said that a few years ago she attended an exhibition and remembered talking to me about one of my original designs, Jacobean Therapy. I had made the quilt while recovering from a touch of PTSD after one of my pupils had ‘bashed’ me. The Jacobean style was one which I was familiar with and because this entire quilt was hand stitched and quilted with mostly hearts I found it slowly helped heal my thoughts with each stitch, hence it’s name.
Anyway, back to the story. The writer wrote that at the time she really wanted to buy the quilt but she and her husband were in a rush and I didn’t have an ATM or the like close by. So the lady and her husband left me feeling really rather pleased with the lovely compliments I had just received.
Well as I said that was a few years ago and I had forgotten the whole episode until the e mail arrived. Well… over the last couple of weeks there have been many emails and today a bank draft arrived. Woo hoo, my therapy is going over the seas to live in Montreal – how exciting!! If only I could take it there personally.
I hope you have a great day and find solace in your stitching when needed.
