    Wonderful gift from board member, I am stunned!

    A short while ago, I was messaged by a board member saying they were interested in sending me a package if I was ok with that.
    Now this is not one of the board members with whom I have formed a friendship, talk to personally, etc. I do like reading her comments, etc. as she seems learned and interesting, but we didn't "know" each other. She has asked to remain anonymous which I will honor.
    She said she has noticed me around the board, and felt moved to send me some fabrics. Of course, I was delighted and honored to be found me worthy.
    The package arrived yesterday and I am stunned by her generosity! I hope I continue to be the kind of person and board member to inspire positive attitudes and kindness by the actions I take.

    A huge thank you to my benefactor and everyone else on this wonderful board who take the time to brighten the day of others. Hugs and smiles to all.

    Very cool. Any photos of the fabric? We would love to see them.

    That is so nice. There are nice people in the world and I believe 90% of them are QB members.

    How nice. Just goes to show we never know who is watching us.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I agree. I have formed some very close friendship with some board members too. Enjoy the fabric.

    Oh how nice. This is a wonderful board, much better than any I have tried before. Everyone is so nice and so helpful. I have learned so much from all the wonderful people on here and there have been those that have helped our small quilt club with fabric to make our quilts for people who lose their homes to fire and also the Children's Hospital quilts as well. I couldn't begin to express how thankful I am to all of you for your generosity and help, many of you never knew you helped me with a problem in your posts, but you have and I just want to say "Thank you" to each and everyone on this board for all the wonderful hints, pictures, contributions, humor and whatever you may have contributed. It is the first e-mail I go to when I get on my computer of a morning. God bless you each and everyone.
