    Last year a coworker's wife past away . and was a quilter. He told me that he wanted me to have some of her stuff. But he never got around to giving it to me until today. A truck load. I'll take pictures tomorow. Will make two quilts for his GD and GS. And one for him.

    Wow!! I'm guessing she must have thought very highly of you, for her husband to want to do this. What a wonderful blessing for you, and for him that your making his family quilts from her things!
    :D

    Ah that's so nice that you are being rewarded - as I always say what goes around comes around you are obviously a good person.
    Can't wait to see all the goodies.

    Can't wait to see what you get!
    Gonna be like Christmas!
    So glad he found someone like you who will appreciate those things. It's sad when people give things away to those that just care less. At least he knows you will take care and use what is given.

    Oh, that is so nice!! I always tell a knitter friend of mine if anything ever happens to me, she can have my yarn stash. Glad to see it will go to good use.

    What a lovely gift to receive....they must have known how much you would treasure her things...I think the idea of making them quilts is just a perfect thank you. Look forward to seeing the pics.

    From one quilter to another.........how nice it must be for him to know that his wife's things will be treasured. He has lived with her and knows the value quilters place on their things, so knows what he is giving you. It sounds like you are graciously accepting, and those quilts will have real special meaning.

    That is such a wonderful thing for him to give to you! You deserve it and will make her proud of what you do with her things. Only quilters appreciate other quilters things!

    Bless you!

    That was really nice of him. Sounds like you made out like a bandit. I hope when I go, that someone who understands quilts, gets my stuff.
