    I want to share my AWESOME surprise and say "This Board Rocks"!

    I am the happy recipient of a RAK!

    I am so happy and so touched by this random act of kindness a member of the quiltling board has shared with me. I just had to post to let you know that Quilters on this Board are the best.
    This is the first time something like this has happened to me and I am humbled and inspired by her kindness.

    I posted a picture a few weeks ago of fabric ( at quarters bundles) I have chosen for my first quilt. I wasn't excatly sure I would have enough fabric, but thought I could add additional yardage if needed.
    Last week I received a private message on here from a quilter and she said she had purchased that same fabric and decided not to use it and she would mail it to me if I would like it. She said she would like for me to have if If I needed it rather than just have it sitting there.
    AWESOME!!!!! Fabric is on it's way to me as I type!

    This is an awesome group, I have learned so much just reading your posts and from replies to my newbie questions.
    I hope to be able to pay it forward when an opportunity comes up!
    Much Thanks again to the Kind QB memeber!

    Good for you! Now you won't have to worry about not having enough of your chosen fabric. Always good to hear of a pay-it-forward.

    I agree! Being a newbie I have learned so much from reading the threads and looking at tuts.
    Thanks everyone.

    Yes the biggest majority on this board are fantastic but I can't get past the member I sent a $10 postage package of fabric crumbs to and didn't even get so much of an acknowledgement that she received it. I know I need to move on!

    I don't believe there is anything that happens by chance. GOD sends people into our lives when we need them most. Enjoy your AWESOME surprise.

    I agree. There are not many places where you can get the warm glow that comes when hearing of good deeds. It restores your faith in people, and counteracts all the terrible things we are bombarded with on the news.
    But, just as remarkable, is the fact that you took the trouble to express your appreciation for the good deed. Gratitude is an approach to life that blesses all who witness it! Bravo!

    Boy, ain't that the truth. I was a recipient of a RAK yesterday when one of our generous members sent me a gift & I am extremely grateful for this very unselfish act. I have already PIF (paid it forward) & will continue to do so in the future. This board is the BEST !!!

    This is a great board! I don't always log in. I'm guilty of reading the posts every morning before my work day begins. I've learned many many tips on here and feel I need to say "thank you" to all of you who are so generous in sharing! I've used many tips as well....

    That is wonderful! I've also been the recipient of RAK from board members who have sent fabric to me.

    Maybe I'm wrong but doesn't RAK stand for Random Acts of Kindness?
