Have you ever been the recipient of a random act of kindness? I was working at the local quilt shop (have I mentioned that I've been picking up hours at the shop?) on Monday, when sweet Kaye arrived to pick up the sample quilts that she had made. We got to talking about life, family, and work...I have to say that I wish I had more time to chat, as I really enjoyed her company!
Small detour...back to the quilt. I was helping her gather her quilts, and mentioned that I loved her Paula Prass (Woodland Delight) quilt, when she handed it to me and told me it was mine. It may seem silly, but I was almost in tears. I've been gifted quilts before (thanks grandma!), but never as an act of kindness from a stranger. I know how much time and money quilts take, and on the spur of the moment she made my week. I don't know if Kaye reads my blog, but if you do...thank you again! :)
Are you ready for one more act of kindness? One of the sweet quilters at the local quilt shop (its such a small world, I actually graduated high school with her daughter!) offered to teach me how to quilt...on her longarm. Its always been something I've been interested in, but have been terrified at the thought of possibly ruining a quilt...you know what I mean? I'll let you know how it goes after my first lesson. Let's just say that I picked up three quilt kits or so from the local quilt shop, so hopefully I'll be ready to learn in no time! :)
