    My Fabric Fairy

    I am just blown away from this gal's generosity. About 2 weeks ago on another board she had fabric scraps to give away and I got those. A big box shows up with lots of goodies. So she emails me and said she had some more stuff for me if I wanted it...sure I said. Well this is what shows up 5 boxes of fabric!!! This great lady spent almost $100 in postage. I have had some life challenges lately and was feeling kind of blue....well who could feel blue when somebody goes out of their way for you. One box has denim all starched and cut into squares...going to make kennel pads for my guys with that. Another box has yard goods of flannel, some squares already cut and put together for a rag quilt and some mens shirts. Another box has 2.5" strips, squares working on a scrap quilt and a great goodie box. The other 2 smaller boxes (not pictured) has just scraps and strips. I like making scrap quilts and this is just up my alley. This just made me smile and feel special.

    What a wonderful story. Maybe you could "pay it forward" and make her something as a surprise! That would be terrific.
    Maybe by that time she would welcome it just as you are welcome for what she has done for you. God bless you!

    What a great person she is to give you all that, now you will have to do something nice back for her I think.
    Enjoy your goodies.
    God Bless you all.

    Wow you are going to be a Very Busy Lady Again, That was incredibly generous of her to send that.
    How did the quilts for Sandy Victims Go?? I've been wondering how you made use of all the Fabric I sent you.
    Have fun with your Haul. It's wonderful that you can sew for all the needy people and pets.

    Don't forget to "pass it forward." Random acts of kindness never go out of style!

    I hope this generous act helps to lift your spirits and you can be an inspiration to others.
