Random Act Of Kindness (RAK)

My check of the mailbox today had a lovely surprise from Stefanie aka The Quilt Buddy! She sent a RAK gift to me. I'm truly tickled to open this up and find this table runner just in time for Thanksgiving tomorrow!

It's an absolute surprise (best kind) to find such a wonderful gift that I will treasure for years to come! Stefanie is a wonderful blog friend of mine, though having never met in person we have a friendship not only with quilting blogs but our husband's are both military; mine having retired a few years ago.
She's very creative and I hope you will take time to check out her blog, introduce yourself and while there scroll down to her many blog post about the Halloween party she put on for her "little person." I love the decor all handmade by her and on a budget. (smart cookie!!)
I've said it time and time again that I want my blog friends to be my neighbors or at least within a short driving distance. I'm grateful and thankful to have found Stefanie as many of my blogger friends.

I have been saying.....quilt bloggers are the absolute BEST!!!!
What a beautiful surprise. I'd be worried that if my friends through blogging lived near me I'd never get anything done and my dust bunnies would grow to huge proportions.

What a wonderful gift and perfect timing. I have large pennies on my dining tables, they come off for the dinner, wish I had time to make some simple ones.
Maybe I will get some for christmas though, now that I thought of it;)

Blogging quilter freinds are absolutely the best. They're sincere, they're sharing, they're kind-hearted and best of all - they do RAKs at any given time from their hearts.
