Remember This

This has been in my head for a week now... it did not turn out as I intended. Tomorrow, I will try to get the one that is in my head out. I am not sure how my quilt turned into a pocket :)

Half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that the other half may reach you.

Paradise is there, behind that door, in the next room; but I have lost the key.
Perhaps I have only mislaid it.

Strange, the desire for certain pleasures is a part of my pain.

dearest ruth, thank you SO much for this amazing gift! Not only is it gorgeous, it's incredibly generous of you!!I'm overwhelmed! I showed my Art Quilt class students, and they loved it and awed by your creativity. THANK YOU!
The valentine I have for you is meek by comparison, but I will send it along humbly.
thank you very much,
