RAK (Random Act of Kindness)

OMGosh!!  I have been RAKed BIG time!!  This arrived in yesterday’s mail and it almost knocked me on my seat!!


And just LOOK at what I found inside!!  Japanese Daiwabo Fabrics…SEVEN half yard pieces!! {Happy dance inserted HERE!}  Wow!! WOW! WOW! I was SPEECHLESS…and that rarely happens!


Now if you read my blog on a daily basis, you know that for the past couple of years I have been slowly building up my Daiwabo Fabrics to make the Heart to Hand Autumn Quilt, Heart to Home and Garden Quilts.  These fabrics are not easy to find…and they ain’t cheap!!  You’ll remember that I was thrilled to find 4 or 5 FQ of Daiwabo at the Victoria Quilt Show

Well Karen (Yellow Farmhouse Blog) noticed…and dug into her own stash and in a Random Act of Kindness, sent me these!!  So lovely…and not a duplicate in the bunch!  Yup, crazy hey!


Some close-ups for you to savour…but please, no drooling!


Oh my…I’m going to need a towel myself! 


Karen, to say that I love these fabrics is an understatement…your thoughtfulness and generosity is WAY over the top!  THANK YOU SEW MUCH!!

If you don’t know Karen and her wonderful Yellow Farm House Blog then you are missing out BIG TIME!!  She makes incredible quilts and has a ‘peeps quilting group’ that I REALLY want to belong to!  In fact, there is already a Paulette in the group…and she looks an awful lot like ME!!  Do you REALLY think they would notice if we did a switcheroo…kind of like in the movie ‘The Parent Trap’(you know, the old one..with Hayley Mills..)  Hey, Paulette…we need to talk…meet me at summer camp?

Thanks again, Karen!! :o)

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
