Kindness....Sew Much Of It Among Us!

Saturday's mail was quite a surprise to me. I had three packages. The picture above (sorry it turned!) is a gift from Pat. She remembered that I loved signs and while shopping her local LQS she spotted these signs and just knew they were for me! I've never seen these before and they make a wonderful addition to my sewing room. Pat and I have never met but somehow she knows my taste! This package was coincidental as I sent her a RAK possibly the same day she mailed me these signs. I had wanted to thank her for my Merry Quilting sign she sent me earlier in the year. Pat, you really caught me off guard and thank you SEW much!!

Serena is another sweet blogger friend of mine. She won't be quilting these batiks by hand and was ridding her stash of them. I've been collecting 2 1/2" strips of batiks so she sent these. Thanks Serena!
I won a giveaway from Marydon. This photo isn't my prize so allow me to explain. After I heard that I won and knowing that I have another blog friend who could likely use a lift about now, I contacted Marydon and asked if she wouldn't mind sending my win as a RAK to fellow blogger. Marydon was more than happy to do so and also knows of the blogger. So...one of you out there has my giveaway win headed your way!
This package arrived for me yesterday with note from Marydon that reads, "Your thoughtful, kind caring for (bloggers name) moves me greatly. Your giveaway win is enroute to her. Please find a few gifts just for you because of your sweet gesture."
Thank you Marydon for YOUR SWEET GESTURE!
I'll be missing from blogging for a few days and I'm sure will have lots of catching up to do by midweek. Keep toasty!!

Love the signs, especially the measure twice one. I should tatoo that saying on my arm so I always remember that (a minor sewing frustration this week with my measuring). How sweet of you to forward your prize as a rak!

All of the gifts are wonderful, but it was especially nice of Marydon to also practice a RAK!

Those signs are perfect! What a wonderful thing to do with your RAK and the unknown blogger who receives it. You are truly a special gem!

Lots of great treats! What a way to celebrate the season of giving!

Funny thing how kindness breeds kindness. I'm always reminded of the poem children learn what they live.
