Saturday I put up some of my stash for sale, included was a piece of Navy blue with white stars. It sold within seconds. This morning I received this message:
I work a 14 hour day on Saturdays and did not get a chance until now to check out your sale. Would you please let the buyer of #1 - Navy blue with stars - know that I am desperate for 1/4 yd of this fabric? I make small flags for veterans and caskets of deceased soldiers. It looks like this fabric (thanks for the ruler on the side) is absolutely the right size for a field of 50 stars in them. I've been searching and I missed it. 1/4 yd would go a long way in making them and/or their families very happy.
I passed the message on to the person who bought the fabric and she replied:
Please cut the 1/4 yard and pass it on to her for me. I'll pay the full price but she is welcome to the 1/4 yard.
I offered Joanne any piece of fabric from my stash and she declined.
If the whole world was like these people, we wouldn't have wounded soldiers.
