Default Thank you for Ray's Hug Quilt

Hello all,
Joann asked if one of us could post her thank you for Ray's hug
quilt. She hasn't been able to post to the ng in quite some time. So below
is her email.
Candy in Ohio
*******************************

Well, ladies and Gent - Ray & I are both surprised & stunned by this truly
amazing gift, - we found it hard to take in that we had been honoured in
such a generous way. Ray immediately hoisted the quilt onto a wall which
was conveniently empty & had a rail. It was clipped on and is being admired
frequently and regularly & we've only had it a few hours. The colours &
quilting are stunning; the overall impression is of wonderful birds in
flight and it couldn't have pleased Ray more. Naturally, it brings a lump
to my throat to see how delighted he is and to think of all your kind
thoughts and beautiful work that went into it.

At an uncertain time of our life, with the future looking scary to say the
least, this is a tremendous boost to us both. Some of you may know that Ray
has visited quite a few quilt shows with me & shown an engineer's technical
interest as well as an admiring artistic one at such textile creations. The
quilt had only been here for a few minutes when a non-sewing friend called
unexpectedly. He grabbed her elbow & started to point out this part and
that, then turned it over to show the back. He was so proud of, & thankful
to you all.

With Judy assembling and Linda H. quilting your lovely individual creations,
it couldn't fail to be such a stunner!
This message will have to be forwarded as I can read the newsgroup but not
send at present due to cybernetic difficulties and recent hard drive
failure. I lost a lot of info. but have managed to resurrect bits and
pieces.
So THANK YOU ALL so much.
I hope to send a photo of the quilt to a website.

JJ & Ray J

Thanks for posting this Candy.
Dear JJ and Ray
It's great to hear that you now have the hug to start the year and it
did, as others do, bring the magic of 'group warmth' to you both. This
is a special long-lasting feeling, too; so you'll both have it around
whenever you need a bit of extra encouragement.
Take care.

Please give Ray and Joanne my sincere "you're welcome" for my little part in
it. I've seen it and think that Judy and Linda did a top notch job on the
quilt.

Please tell JJ and Ray that every one of us feels it was our privilege to do
this for them. I am so warmed by her description of his delight. It's just
what was aimed for!

Dear JJ: It is lovely to hear from you again. You and Ray are in
my thoughts and prayers. Too bad you can't post, but at least you
can eavesdrop now and then! Take care and do try to send messages
to one or the other of us now and then, to post on the list for
you.

Hugs, PAT in VA/USA
PS: I had wondered who that 'Joann' could be, while reading
Candy's note! Ah, ha, our own JJ with formal cover! But thank
you so much Candy, for sending this to us.
