    thank you

    I want to take this opportunity to thank a board member.
    I don't know this person, but she did a random act of kindness
    to me and it is greatly appreciated. Quilters are the nicest people
    and I want her to know what she did for me was very much welcomed
    and appreciated. ....and will be paid forward.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Hi Lynnie: I just glanced up to see where you are from, and can't get a picture in my mind of a totally urban person like yourself being such an avid quilter. Oh well. Congratulations. I guess we all have our little niches. Plus, you've done a blue million posts, so you also do a lot of reading, huh? Just by way of suggestion, if you read a lot, and haven't read much about this Ebola thing worrying us right now, get hold of a copy of 'THE HOT ZONE' by Richard Preston and read it (be sure to read all the introductory and post scripted stuff); it is quite graphic, but from one who is a Debbie Macomber reader, it is a great, thought provoking read. And if you do read it, please get back to me and let me know your feelings.
    Make every day count for something!

    I've been quilting since I was a kid, and just finished my mystery train ride quilt.
    I was quilting when it wasn't the cool thing to do, now they have quilting stores.
    A real happy place.
    Remember to pay it forward. you never know who you're helping, it does come back to you!!

    Hi Lynnie, I for one love PIF and glad you are able to do so too. I see your name all over the QB so you are very involved and helpful, so even in that way you are PIF. You rock! And the person who helped you rocks too!
    peace

    Lynnie, you pay it forward with your private responses to people and your kindnesses to those who have questions or work to show on QB. It's a good thing that someone did a random act of kindness for ​you!

    This thread is kind of funny.. Yes, I have to say that Lynnie, you are awesome.
    The reply about quilters on LI is funny, too.. I live on the island, and have been quilting for at least thirty years..
    I was at the cardiologists, and the NP that was doing the stress test on me asked what I like to do in my spare time.. I said I love to quilt.. It turns out that she is a quilter, too.. We even thought the quilt show in Philly is the best one that we both go to..

    Barri, hi, how are you? Wish more quilter on the island would raise their hands.
    I love meeting new people and sharing ideas with them. Too bad you're so far
    from me. when I met you that one time I thought, what a sweet person you were.

    I have thought it often but this posts demands that I say it:

    Lynnie, You are one classy chick!! Thanks for all you add to this community and the powerful example you set for the rest of us. (Hope this new mantle doesn't burden you too much, LOL!)

    Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, For I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.

    Thans everyone for your kind words.
    It's so easy to pay it forward at times. If you see someone
    who looks down, just smile at them, that could change their day.
    I've learned so much form everyone here, and hope this board
    continues forever. I do a lot of quilting and crafts related to sewing
    and just love the inspiration i get here. What a wonderful community
    we have here.
    A big thank you to all the moderators we have here too.
