For many years, in fact since I was 10 years old I have had a penfriend in the USA

Georganna has been to visit me in Australia five times and I have been to visit her twice

Meeting her in real life was like meeting a long lost sister

She came to Lyndas wedding .but didnt make it to Aines

She came about two years ago to see Lorraine and say her goodbyes

This week in the mail I received These beautiful quilted pictures that she made

The Breast cancer one is a lovely tribute to my darling girl and a great comfort to me

She doesnt have a blog or email


How nice it would be to "talk" to her more often

These quilted pictures are just beautiful and very, very special. I think the fact that you have had your penfriend since you were 10 is also AMAZING. That would be so wonderful to have been communicating with her all this time, and getting to meet each other...WOW. True kindred spirits.
