As some of you know, on the 19th of December, I had total knee replacement surgery. Ten days later, my knee and leg were swollen and inflamed, and, due to the fact my aortic valve has a leak in it, the doctor decided to re-do the surgery as he felt it was infected.

Leaves received the quilt!!! This is one of the most incredible things I've ever been given. Every one of these sayings is extraordinary. It's just incredible. On so many levels its just beautiful - emotionally, visually, in the beautiful way it's made, in the words themselves which are so full of poetry, healing and holiness.

A week from now, Sara R will pass a milestone: five years at Daily Kos. In that time, she’s proved to be a powerful community builder in a way that is almost shaman-like. Her quilts–both the signature-quilt fund-raisers she has stitched together for Netroots Nation and the spectacular “love catchers” she’s made for 30 (now 39) members of the DK family in need of healing–are tangible expressions of community connection that transcend our workaday political world.
