    wow what a kind hearted man. Such a shame to lose his wife. She must have been quite the quilter to sew up a quilt every week! At least he is giving her sewing stash to a good person and it will have a good and happy home

    I always think that during the week a love one dies, everyone is there or nearby...it is necessary to think of the weeks to come or even months that someone who has lost someone needs a cup of coffee or meal from a friend.

    I think that would be a very nice gesture for sure!

    What a beautiful man!! I'm sure you will treasure everything he gives to you. I totally agree, your absolute next project should be something for him.

He said that he was watching me at my breaks working on my quilts and he tought that I have a love for quilting that his wife had. He told me he has all her quilting things and a very large stach. he said no one whanted it and he wanted to give it to someone who will enjoy it as much as she did. He said he is going to give it to me as so as he can clean up abit. What could I say but yes. It will come in handy because I just lost my over time and can not buy anything rigth now;and I need new things. I"m low.
    No strings attached to you getting his stash.....not even a home cooked meal?

    What a wonderful gesture on his part. I like nor'easter's suggestion, too.
