cskendrick's Testimonial

QUILT #023

linkage1951: We're here at NetRoots Nation 13. And it's my opportunity here to interview one of the recipients of the community quilt. Can I ask you to tell us a bit about what the quilt means to you.

peregrin kate: My name on Daily Kos is Peregrine Kate. The quilt was, for me, a singular blessing. I had been on Daily Kos as a diarist for only a very short period of time after lurking for many years.
