Love These FPCs

I wanted to make a special gift for a friend who's going through his first Christmas season without his wife of 27 years. But sometimes you have to know a person really well before you 'bequeath' a quilt on them, don't want to overwhelm him... Still, I had that - I want to make something special for this person - feeling in me. So I made a fabric postcard.

He talks about the night sky. When he got back from Hawaii in November he commented on the way the Milkyway looked so completely different down there. He's told me about sitting in his hot tub on a winter night with the starry canopy for company. So I wrote this lyric on the back:

Catch a falling star and put in your pocket
Save it for a rainy day
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Never let it fade away

He *loved* it. It's sitting on his computer monitor where he can see it daily.

Be well Steve.
