Bloggy Friends!!!!

I met a wonderful quilter through blogging and we've enjoyed many friendly e-mails. She has been an inspiration to me in so many ways. She's an awesome quilter and a wonderful woman! She recently asked for my snail mail address and told me she wanted to share some of her Civil War fabrics with me! I was totally surprised, but wanting to be gracious (LOL), I promptly e-mailed the address with a huge thank you!!

The only stipulation to the gift? She didn't want to be blogged about or thanked publicly. This shows the heart of this fine woman. I did ask her if it would be ok to share with you the wonderful fabrics she sent me.....and she agreed to that.

She sent me half yard cuts of most of these fabrics and a few of these are a bit smaller. Lots of wonderful fabrics to add to my stash of Civil War fabrics, just waiting to be sewn into a wonderful quilt or two!!! She also sent along some dark chocolate...with mint!! How did she know??? And some wonderful trail mix. I was a bit confused about the mint tin, until I read the note!! So smart!!! It is for storing old rotary blades, broken pins and needles in so that when you do throw them away, no one cuts themselves in the trash. What a great idea!

So, Dear Bloggy Friend, thank you SOOO much for the wonderful gift!! I LOVE it all. Keep on sewing and inspiring!!! Quilty hugs to YOU!!!!!

Happy Quilting!!!!!!!

What great mail to receive! Blogging leads to some great friendships. Another idea for storing old pins and needles before throwing them out is an old film canister. When I have one that's full, I tape it so it won't come undone in the garbage and then throw it out.

The mint tin is a very, very good idea. Isn't it nice to have such wonderful friends?

That is so sweet of your bloggy friend. Aren't quilting friends the most generous! Those are some really great fabrics, lucky you!

Unexpected kindness is the best! This morning the lady in front of me in the check-out lane gave me her $3.00 store coupon because she said she probably wouldn't be back in time to use it. Not fabric, but the gesture stems from the same generosity.

What a cool chick! I want some of those fabrics and hey, what about that tip? Fresh breath and no cuts, too! Very hip.
