Quite a Surprise

(Moved from the top of main page)

I'm never sure how to write about something like this. 

Towards the end of July 2009, Sam sent me a message saying him and his wife would be in Tucson and would like to meet Deb and I. I'm always interested in meeting the people who visit this website, so I told him it would be very nice to meet him. 

Sam arrived in Tucson on Friday, 7 August. After some bad directions on my part, we met at a restaurant close to where I live. It's a nice place with good food. Deb and I go there with the kids once in a while. 

After dinner, Sam brought in a bag, like a gift bag. I had no idea what it was until he told me what had been happening. I was, to say the least, extremely surprised. The bag contained quilt squares from various Members of this site. I just couldn't believe it, and as I went through the squares one at a time, I realized why this site still exists - it's because the people here really are part of a large extended family, and I'm proud to be a part of it! 

I laid out the squares this morning, and photographed them. You can see the quilt below. I am truly happy and proud that this website attracts the nicest people.

Thank you all!!
