It all started at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting last Sunday when Annie gave me a bundle of fabric - a fat quarter for every £10.00 I spent in her shop which was a generous offer she had on at The Village Haberdashery during Quilt Market a couple weeks ago. She picked these for me and they are perfect! Lime green, grey, white, blue and red - oh yes!
At the meeting, Charlotte also gave me some fabric - a roll of Stof fabric "just 'coz"!! Charlotte knew I would love it and could use it. How kind and sweet was that!? These are the colours I am using in my KING SIZE wonky log cabin quilt - greens, purple and greys!
A little while ago I was part of a Scrap Vomit Swap of 2.5" squares and I blogged about the three sets of squares that I received. I
And Moira of Kettle Boiler, who I met at Retreat in the summer, also wrote to me saying that she wanted to send me some fabric for my Scrap Vomit quilt too - and look at the deliciousness that she sent this week!! Yum!
And the kindness doesn't stop there! I am in a group called Lazy Bums and October's challenge was to work on my 'wonky houses and wonky trees' project and I did manage to get one more of each completed for an eventual quilt (?). Tricia of Fresh Raspberriy Quilts helped me out and made me a house and a tree for my growing 'town' of crazy houses and wild trees! Awesome!
I was also given some red and black felt from Shevvy a few weeks ago and I am thankful for that because I have used some of it to make a few different Christmas decorations/ornaments, including this little heart with snowflake.

And last but not least, I won an electric copy of the fabulous book Hexa-go-go from Quilt Dad's blog a few weeks ago but had major difficulties downloading the book from the C&T Publishing link that I was sent. I never did get it to download but the kindness of strangers once again occurred and I was sent a physical copy of the book from the USA from Jennifer at C&T. Thanks for that!
So basically what I'm saying is that these acts of kindness by "strangers" have made my heart sing!! When I'm having a particularly blue day all I do is remember that there are friendly, happy, kind people out there making the world a better place one parcel at a time so THANK YOU to each and every one of you for picking me up and reminding me the world is OK.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
