    A Crazy Quilter Blown away!

    I posted on this board that I was new to CQ and asked for some ideas. WELL, everyone was so wonderful in giving me lots of info. Today I was totally blown away when a package arrived in the mail with books, threads, ribbons, beads, and charms.

    Jackie Spencer your generosity knows no bounds. Thank you so very much. My Mom always told me when you "send your bread out, it comes back buttered" At this moment I do not know what that will be but something will be coming your way.

    TY my friend!! You are the best!!
    Hugs, Ruth

    I have always found that quilters and gardeners are some of the kindest people around.

    That is just wonderful. I posted an article about one of our members who lost everything in a fire (including 3 pets) and was hospitalized for 7 weeks with burns. I wanted to show her that we care about our fellow members. So far the response has been good. I am so glad you now know how wonderful this board really is and how much we care for our own. I am thrilled for you.

    I just glanced at your other thread and you mentioned that you were taking a class and your teacher was going to Williamsburg for a class. I think we may be in the same group. Is it at the Log Cabin in Selkirk, NY? PM me and maybe we can meet up there. I am new to the class so I don't know everyone.

    Great folks on this board for sure. I have a question for you. How did Jackie get your address? There have been many times recently that I have wanted to PIF but had no way to get an address without specifically asking (by PM) of the person I wish to send to. Most recently a young girl who wanted to begin quilting but parents did not have means to assist. I wanted to send her "stuff" to get her started. Thanks.

    I'm nearby also. Would love to meet you both there sometime. Love the new shop. I loved the shop when it was in the actual log cabin also, but hard for me to climb the stairs. If anyone is visiting the area it's the friendliest shop with great selections.

    I like your comment about not "sweating the small stuff". When my sister found out she was dying, she said the same thing - but added, "And, it's all small stuff".

    Bonnie is having a crazy quilt class on Thursday February 28th at 6:00. Perhaps you both could go. Anyone else in the area are invited also. It is a very nice quilt shop with a friendly bunch of people

    I won't be in the class but will stop by before or after so I don't disrupt it.
