Thank you Candace!

 IMG_1271

What sweet friends you meet in blog land!  I received a package from Candace at Squash House Quilts.  She was ‘Paying it Forward"’ and picked me to give this wonderful gift to.  She made a really wonderful bag out of my favorite colors, green and red, and she sent me a charm pack of Figgy Pudding.  I already have ideas for that.  In the true fashion of the generous person that she is she also sent me a very handy bias tool from Fons & Porter that I am sure I will put to good use on a few WIP’s that I am getting close to finishing.  But, she didn’t stop there…it seems that quilters and fishermen must have chocolate so she sent a bag of M & M’s for both Michael & myself to give us the energy to keep doing the things we love.  What a sweet gift!  Thank you Candace.

For my part in ‘Paying it Forward’ I gave a dear friend that was without a sewing machine my old machine and an apron pattern.  She was really needing a machine just to be able to do some mending, but she had always loved to sew and was so grateful to be able to get back to sewing once again.  It did my own heart good to help her out.  I have 2 more things to do yet and am sure I will be getting to them real soon!

 

Enjoy all the day has to offer!
