    I had a knock on my door yesterday and one of the ladies from my quilt group, that sadly I had to leave due to a change in hours at work, presented me with a card and inside a gift voucher for a lovely quilt store fairly near to me - one that I use, for 25.00 sterling (don't know what that is in dollars) just wanted to share as it made my day so unexpected - will be going towards the Mariners Compass I have been threatening to do for a few years

    Fantastic gift. We Brits are notorious for not showing emotion, but heck, we can be kind! Enjoy and I am sure that you are sadly missed.

    I love gift cards. I get them for every occasion, that way I get what I want and maybe even splurge on something I would not ordinarily buy.
