I've known my friend Jan for 21 years. She holds the number one place for the longest running friendship I have ever shared. We have a few things in common, like our October birthdays. This Fall she will turn 70 years old and she looks just as good now as she did when I met her 21 years ago. She has fantastic patience for needlepoint and sewing. She is a great cook and baker... she makes delicious breads, pies and pasta. Aside from my mom, Jan is the most amazing woman I have ever known.
From the goodness of her heart, she made a quilt for me. When she asked me about colors, I suggested "earth tones", and let her pick the colors. She is a bit of a perfectionist, so I knew that anything she created would be perfect. I picked up my quilt today and when we opened it up I had tears in my eyes.
Jan doesn't like to have her picture taken, but I got away with a few photos today. I am so grateful for this quilt, words cannot express how much.
Thank you Jan, I love you.
