I wanted to pass along some sad news.  Jovita, the designer of our fabulous quilt along block Make Mine a Double, had her twins a few days ago.  Unfortunately, she wasn’t due for quite a while, so her babies “are in the arms of angels now.”  While there isn’t anything we can do, perhaps it would help in a small way to know there are people around the world who care about her.  Here’s her post:

I don’t know how she was able to write it.  Jovita, may you feel the arms of your precious angels around you.

    Thanks for letting us know. I know that this is a difficult time for the family. Loss is always rough, but when it is a child (or children) it is almost unbearable.

    I was amazed at how gracious her post was; I started bawling on the spot.
