Uplifting tale – I’ve enjoyed Starting Over, the serialized fiction by Bob Brown that concluded in the May issue. With our current down times, we need a little humor. This story was amusing and uplifting.

Thankful for ideas – Some time ago, I wrote in asking for ideas on how to display quilts at a quilt show (Reader to Reader, April). The show was a success, and I want to thank everyone who replied to my request.

I recently learned that the quilt show was going to become an annual affair, so I’m sure we’ll make good use of all the many ideas readers so generously shared.

Editor’s note: Many readers contacted us about the Rhubarb-Strawberry Salad recipe in the Reader Recipes column of the May issue (Page 29). The recipe should have noted that the rhubarb must be cooked.
